St. Patrick’s Day is a special time of year for all alcoholics people, but the real question on every beer-drinker’s mind today is where’s the bathroom? what’s the story behind its beloved and sometimes controversial mascot, the Leprechaun?
Leprechauns are known as anything from joyous little Irish folk to gold mongerers who, concealed only by rainbows, traffic riches in a Colombian drug lord-esque guerrilla style campaign all over the world. However, all this defamation is completely false according to the Top Secret Leprechaun Awareness spokesman, the Lucky Charms Leprechaun.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone!
