Yes, 'tis a day for the Wearin' O' Th' Green, but once again I resort to Bill Engevall's "Here's yer sign!" award that must be meted out in a moment. Mobocracy and TV cameras go a long way to make people do and behave strangely, that's for sure. While this video clip has been around a couple of years, it is worthy of watching all the way through...and probably a couple of times. It's a real TV news report from Alabama where, in a particular Mobile neighborhood, a leprechaun is believed to be 'hiding' in the trees. Those who have gone snipe hunting will especially appreciate this gem of a story....just click on "Lucky":
Good luck deciding on whether the 'crackhead' line or the ancient flute was the best part...so many fish in the barrel to shoot at...
I didn't dig too deeply to find if this next news story came first and the one above was a follow-up, or if this one is a follow-up done by another station after the classic one above. No matter, as both are full of people truly in search of a seasonal holy grail. Just click on the pot o' gold:
Found this joke that I thought was humorous...I'm guessing those across the Big Pond will chuckle even more at it...
The Scottish guy says, "I am a fisherman, my Dad's a fisherman, his Dad was a fisherman and my son will be one too. I want all the oceans full of fish for all eternity." So, with a blink of the Genie's eye ***POOF!*** the oceans were teaming with fish.
The Englishman was amazed, so he said, "I want a wall around England, protecting her, so that no one will get in for all eternity." Again, with a blink of the Genie's eye ***POOF!*** there was a huge wall around England.
The Irishman asks, "I'm very curious. Please tell me more about this wall." The Genie explains, "Well, it's about 150 feet high, 50 feet thick, protecting England so that nothing can get in or out."
The Irishman says, "Alright, then, fill it up with water."
Erin go bragh!
