Tiny Leprechaun

Winning caption by Caroline:
If rather than ”top o’ the mornin”,
You’re tired, fed up and mean,
Pop me in your pocket and smile
At something Irish, wee, and green!
(me!)

I pretty much entirely missed St. Patrick’s Day yesterday, so I’m making up for it today with this little guy!

We’ve all heard what leprechauns do, but a tiny leprechaun deserves his own special tiny leprechaun lore, don’t you think? Leave your lore in the comments, and the writer of the best caption will win a free PDF from the Mochimochi Shop on Monday!

  1. That is super awesome!

    Tiny leprechauns hide amongst the leaves and ride the backs of squirrels with wheels. They love to cosplay as Eric the Red or Red Beard!

  2. Aye…that was such good drinkin’ yes’day! Should quit until next year but can’t. Just love that green ale!

  3. Tiny Leprechaun spends his day making tiny shoes for the other Tinys. he keeps his pot of gold dust at the end of the tiny rainbow that comes from your garden hose, but you’ll never be able to get to it.

  4. If rather than ”top o’ the mornin”,

  7. Tired after a long day of luring foolish mortals with rainbows, a regular sized leprechaun dropped one if his precious golden coins. It rolled to a rest beneath a shamrock, just as the rays of a rainbow illuminated the green plant. Instantly, the wee, tiny leprechaun sprang into being!

  8. The leprechaun poem…
    saint Patrick day saint Patrick day i might just be a leprechaun where is my pot of gold where is my pot of gold i might be a leprechaun but i am strong but i am strong using the three leaf clover.

  9. tiny leprechaun is very self aware of his size, he likes it this way “it lets me get every last drop out of the bottle during a St. Pat’s Day party…….. it’s a great way to get the lady leprechauns’ attention * hint* * hint*”

  10. Little Leprechaun hops from pocket to pocket, bringing good luck to those you pass on the street. You looked like you deserved some extra, so he’s with you for the long haul.

  11. Who cares if he’s a day late? Now he gets all the attention. Now he just needs a tiny pot of gold and a tiny 4-leaf clover! So adorable!!

  12. A leprechaun went wee in all of our toilets on St. Patrick’s Eve! Upon waking my 6 year old discovered that the water in all of our toilets had turned GREEN! She was over-the-moon excited that a leprechaun had used *our* toilets…and told all of our neighbors.

    I would love, love, love to knit her this little guy!

  13. Tiny Leprechaun appears when a rainbow of colour is bought for a yarn stash in order to protect his gold…..records!? Who can make a living with just any old pot of gold anymore. Tiny is staging a comeback tour with House of Pain.

  14. After a night of one-too-many pints, the once great, but pompous, boxer chose to pick on a slight-looking, yet powerful, mage. The mage shrunk him down, where he was forced to see life from the perspective of his victims. From then on, despite his meek stature, he vowed to defend all those he had antagonized in the past… “I may be tiny and ginger, but I’ll take you down like a ninja!”

  15. “It’s sooo funny how ye all want t’ be me friend but ONE day o’ the year t’ get me gold. As if ye could get me drunk on green beer and walk away with yer pockets jinglin’! Well I’m puttin’ me foot down! Ye want gold?! Go bother Rumplestiltskin. Oh aye, it’s not so funny when ye have to sell yer first-born, is it!?”

  16. Leprechaun lore has it that this guy invented the pick up line “Do you have a little Irish in you?”

  17. Why can’t you borrow money from tiny leprechaun?

    Because he’s always a ‘little’ short!

    Awesome pattern ANNA!!!
