Apparently Leprechauns DO exist...


Off-Topic Discussions


I swear to Zeus, Odin, or whomever else is a high muckety-muck, this really happened, today. My wife works with someone who has an adult son with Down's Syndrome (or that's what she just told me on the phone.) Her son stays home by himself during the day while she (my wifes friend) is at work. He understands that he is only to call her if it is an emergency. Today he called her in a panic. She got out of him that he captured a leprechaun. She explained to him that he knows that leprechauns do not actually exist. He very adamantly insisted he has one captured. She went home at lunch time to calm him down. When she got home she heard a pounding coming from a bedroom closet and her son forcefully holding the door closed. She immediately rushed to open the door, and out springs a ... little person or dwarf, or whatever is the politically correct term. He was obviously in quite a state of distress. She learned that he is a Jehova's Witness and had just been making the rounds... Needless to say he was none-to-pleased at his predicament. I kid you not, that JUST happened this morning in the Detroit Michigan suburbs. I couldn't have made up a funnier story. Ok, carry on.


O_o


Love it.


Is there any media about this? Seems like it would be great. Did the little person forgive and forget, or will he go to the cops?

Oh, and ROTFLMAO....


I felt bad for laughing, but it didn't stop me. Now my sides ache. Thank you for sharing that.


At this point in time that is all the information I have. My wife called me while she was driving home. I'll have to search the local news to see if there was anything reported about it.. I have to think that would be some paper-selling headlines...

Heard the same story when my wife worked for the census.

Child-like whimsy gone slightly awry.


Ok, umm yeah that's odd. Seriously, my wife just called me and told me that exact story. Now I have to find out more about her work friend to find out how that info got to her. Because yeah, that's practically verbatim what she told me lol

If it actually checks out that would be interesting, but I would assume that your wife's friend was playing a prank. First time I heard the story I thought it was true, but then heard it again a couple weeks later from someone else and had to go investigate.


Yeah I just called her trying to figure out how that story got conveyed to her.. did her friend say it happened to HER (in which case she's directly lying), or a friend of HERS (in which case her friend's friend could have made it up and there was no lying on my wifes immediate friend.) It still wasn't completely clear to me.

Sorry, forget I ever mentioned it. I'm gonna beat my wife (kidding) when I get home because I never fall for that kind of stuff but since it was coming from her... I just by default didn't suspect it. That'll learn me.

Hmmmm....maybe if it'd have been Eric Idle in a dress rather then a child...

Are you kidding? I don't care if it's true or not. It's still comedy gold.
