Where the gold at?

picture-81St. Patrick’s Day is a day to celebrate Irish heritage – and celebrating is enough to make you Irish for a day.  While St. Pat’s seems to center primarily around drinking, drinking and being merry in the name of green beer, some still harbor the vague hope that a real-live leprechaun might make himself known and lead you to a pot of gold.

And so we take a moment this St. Pat’s to revisit the classic news story that spawned a flurry of leprechaun T-shirts and distinguished Mobile, Alabama as a noteworthy St. Patrick’s Day celebration destination.  So keep your green river, Chicago: Alabama has a real-life leprechaun, and they’re not afraid to show him off via amateur sketch.
