First Vampires, Now Leprechauns?

Something funny is going on in the state of Colorado. Only days after the roadway vampire incident police are looking for a leprechaun that was spotted harassing customers outside a supermarket in Boulder.

Either Colorado is now home to a crack in the universe that amplifies paranormal phenomena or there's a guy out there with more than one costume.

Police in Colorado are looking for a man dressed as a leprechaun who was seen jumping around a car park pretending to shoot people with his fingers.

Police in the city of Boulder were called after the man was spotted in the parking lot of a local supermarket, jumping out from behind cars, doing gun-fingers at shoppers, and reportedly making obscene gestures.

Sergeant Fred Gerhardt of the Boulder police told local newspaper the Daily Camera: 'I think that's why they called us. He was acting bizarre.'

Well, that, and it's not every day you see a leprechaun in a parking lot, making obscene gestures or not. True to form, though, the creature vanished before law enforcement could arrive and steal its pot of gold.

Officers who arrived on the scene were, unfortunately, unable to locate the leprechaun, who remains at large.

According to Gerhardt, this is the first time Boulder police have had to deal with a complaint about a leprechaun.

So far there is no word on whether or not alcohol or drugs were involved this time around. In related news, a photographer in Finland has finally succeeded in finding the end of the rainbow. Perhaps this discovery prompted the leprechaun's appearance, though why it showed up in Colorado instead of Finland remains a mystery.

RAW wrote a story that included some dude in Boulder selling clean urine by mail to pass piss tests. Someone cornered him and said, wait a minute, you're from Boulder!? Where do you get clean urine! and he's all, "Uh, there's a couple guys who don't turn on, uhm..." In the story, turned out he was selling cow urine, because no one's clean in Boulder.

Oh, and having lived in CO, it's a pretty accurate portrayal of Boulder.

Leprechauns don't surprise me at all.

Rufus: It's always good to get an insider's perspective. I've never been to Boulder myself, and maybe there's no mention of drugs or alcohol in the article because it's just assumed given the location.

Giania: Wow, goblins? That crack in the universe must be wider than I initially thought. Either that or the Colorado costume store is part of a multinational chain!
