Every year my #2 son builds a leprechaun trap and every year the litter bugger trashes my house! Always leaving green pee in my toilets, knocking over furniture and making a huge mess (hard to tell if he actually did it this year-yes, my house is that bad!), dropping some loose change or gold dollar coins and leaving a sassy note. The cool thing is, every year the traps get more detailed.
This is a picture of the inside of the trap. It was filled with all kind of lures: a bed, Lucky Charms, green beads, & notes on the outside. It was actually sealed shut and had a one-way door that was supposed to keep the lil’ bugger in. Instead, he left green footprints all over it and peed in my toilet! In the past, the traps have been painted green and rocks were painted gold. There have been trails of Lucky Charms and rainbows (all things hat the little men in green like). We figure leprechauns are always around, but are probably best to try and catch on St. Patty’s Day. The goal is to get him and get his pot of gold. Bummer, we didn’t get the gold – it really could have come in handy for paying for home renovations this year! Now to catch the white furry 4-legged animal that delivers CHOCOLATE!!! He better not poop in my house this year (he has done that in the past).
