Never Forget The Time People Saw A Leprechaun In Alabama

In honor of St. Patrick's Day...

Do you remember back in 2006 when the residents of Mobile, Alabama ALL spotted a leprechaun in a tree? 

"Who all seen a leprechaun? Say, 'YEAH!!!'"

This was the "amateur sketch" that was being sent around — just in case anyone else spotted him. This sketch would help them identify if it was the same one...

This woman pointed out that it could just be a crackhead...

...good point. 

This guy is "just here to help."

"This is a special leprechaun flute. This has been passed down from thousands of years ago from my great-great grandfather who’s Irish."

And THIS is the tree under which Mobile residents believed they might find a pot of gold...

Just...never forget that this happened, OK? 

Pass this story down to your children, and your children's children and your children's children's children. Because this is one of those things, that the world needs to remember forever.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
