Leprechaun Loose in Alabama
Status: Undetermined
image Some residents of Mobile, Alabama are claiming that a leprechaun is loose in their neighborhood. It shows up in the branches of a tree at night. Apparently it can't be photographed, but the thumbnail shows an "amateur sketch" of what people say it looks like. The NBC 15 news broadcast that covered this interesting phenomenon reports that: "eyewitnesses say the leprechaun only comes out at night. If you shine a light in its direction, it suddenly disappears." Make sure that you catch the guy who appears towards the end of the report who has "a special leprechaun flute which has been passed down from thousands of years ago from my great, great grandfather who is Irish."

I suppose they'll be saying "Leprechauns are black!" after this. First Jesus, then Santa, now Leprechauns.

"ANYONE SEE A LEPRECAHUN IN THE TREE SAY 'YEEEEEEAH!!!' "

LOL

I think they have nothing else to give to the community except to get on the news with this story.As far as the news they are idots for even covering it.Whats next we find smurfs or ninja turtles in NY.Lets forget the crime and chase little green men.

hehe unless this guys father was a scaffold erectionist i don't think so. His "Flute" is used to connect two frames of scaffold together.

Reality is all in one's perception, and collective belief can create anything. We are all creators. We are all part of the infinite, so yes, I believe they are in fact seeing a Leprechaun....Look at history, as the mindset changed new creatures were formed, it is all cosmic dust anyway, open to interpretation, we mold it into whatever image we see fit...It is all in the mind to begin with. Thoughts are things. cool hmm

I've recently seen the MSNBC video, and I was shocked at how an entire group of people could be some dumb, and entire community. "I want the gold," and "A special flute that has been passed down." I do not see it as a ace based thing, but I think each, and every single person on that broadcast should be slapped, and put in a mental hospital for a long time.

Okay they have been showing this same video for years.It is just a lil bit of Bama humour i guess.We enjoy seeing people really believe these things its funny right??

As for the racist shit,Do we always have to turn everything into racism we are having a lil fun whats the problem its people like you who ruin the party..........I am a white woman and not prejudice by far........I just think its rediculous that someone mentions crackhead and you assume they are being racist no one said black crackhead the damn leprachaun is GREEN!!!

Who said its a hoax?

A company in ireland will catch a Leprechaun fro you and post it to the USA. Perhaps its one of theirs that escaped. Their web-site is http://www.catchaleprechasun.com

What art school did that amateur sketch artist go to? It looks like my friend's senior thesis.

It was Alvin the Chipmunk, materialized from the cartoon while that strange boy played the magic flute.
