anything I say would be wrong.. so very wrong...I like how the leprechaun has the face of that "doll" that was found in some museum or something.. another snopester could link to it.. "timmy" is it?

I'll just say --Umm, yeah, sure..

And, just as point of reference, there is a "ladymoon" on here--people just call me LMS--that way no one gets confused. [Smile]

That doll.. those eyes...spooky..

I hate that Robert the doll shares my name.

BTW...is that all there is to that site, just a picture of the doll?

Oh Pleeze! This time of year, it has to be a spring-breaker. They get their break from college, come down here to the Gulf Coast, and go nuts. The fact that this one hasn't run thru a restaurant naked, or fallen off a hotel balcony just means he/she is one of the tamer ones.

Some news stations will put on such a story for a special occasion. Such as: St. Patrick's Day.

Here's the link I found from the NBC15 Mobile, Alabama news site.

I am suprised that "The Daily Show" hasn't picked this up yet! This is the kind of stories they love!

The artist sketch was great.. I think I could pick the guy out of a line up now that I have seen a drawing of him...

They are selling the sketch on Ebay! $400.00 and 32 bids so far, and it has six days left on the auction! Just go to search and put in leprechaun sketch. The funds are going to the TV station's Relay for Life. I so enjoy watching the video, I used to live in Mobile and watched that station's news every night.
