Trying to Catch a Leprechaun: Traps and Bait Tested

The Mirth in a Box Testing Facility folks have been working hard during happy hour

Trap for Leprechauns

Waiting quietly

at the Gaelic American Club. They have submitted the following research paper:

Lab Notes: Annoying at best and down right malignant on a bad day, leprechauns are the favorite prey of St. Patrick Day revelers. Rumor has it that if caught, the leprechaun must grant 3 wishes before being released. Not a bad exchange for a few minutes with this cranky creature! Mirth in a Box decided to test out different types of leprechaun bait. We took the red eye to Dublin and hitchhiked out to the countryside.

Testing: We first tried Lucky Charms. Seems any fondness for Lucky Charms was madeup by the PR folks at General Mills. Next we tried a red-haired maiden. Apparently they are a dime a dozen in Ireland. Reaching deep down into our bag of tricks, we came up with a boom box and played the sound track to River Dance. Not surprisingly, leprechauns have become immune to these tunes. So we then tried a pot of gold, but quickly realized leprechauns have more than they need. Lastly we built a trap box and placed on it a sign that read, “DO NOT EVER ENTER!” ¬†and “KEEP OUT” This actually worked!

Conclusions: After several pints of Guinness we were not thinking clearly enough to

HA HA!!!!

formulate 3 perfect wishes so we tried to hedge our bets and came up with the following:

I. World Peace
II. Health for everyone
III. Three more wishes (had to try it)

A. Happiness for everyone
B. Cleveland Browns go to Super Bowl
C. Three more wishes

1. Mirth in a Box has a bellwether website that is fun & easy to use.
2. MiaB is incredibly successful and gets an office with a fireman’s pole.
3. Everyone at MiaB has health, happiness & 3 more wishes.

That should cover everything for now. What would you wish for? Let us know in our comment section below!
