    Talking I want the gold..

    I tried to search to see if this had been posted before, but nothing came up.. so, I apologize if this is a repost. I saw this video a while ago and forgot about it until I recently re-discovered it! For those who haven't ever seen this, it was an actual news story about some people in Mobile, Alabama thinking there actually was a Leprechaun in the tree. Me, personally, I just think that it "could be a crackhead that got hold to the wrooooong stuff." That's just my opinion though...
    This is the actual news story.

    Annnd... here's the music video about the story somone made.

    Rick,

    I have to inform you that Irish people are not just reheaded freckled people. They are usually fair skinned brunettes. Believe or not their are individuals called Black Irish. Some of that refers to the Irish with dark black hair that are gypsy's, yes real gypsy's and some have black pigmented skin, which we call here in America, African Americans.

    Default Wonderful news..

    Well.. since I'm on the topic of "interesting" news stories, I'll post another old one that I just re-discovered. As to not give the impression that this stuff only happens in the South, here is one from Oakland, CA.

    Enjoy the wonderful antics thanks to the Whistle Tip, "WOOOO WOOOO!"

    I've been convinced for some time we are evolving backward.
