How many pints does it take to see a leprechaun? Well, first it has to be green beer --then about 12.
Have you ever not worn green, just to get pinched? I have. It all depends on who is doing the pinching.
Do you believe in leprechauns? Nope.
Yvonne NewmanInternational policy analyst, Monterey
Do you believe in leprechauns? I believe that the concept of them can be anything--so sure.
Have you ever not worn green so you''d get pinched? No; that is a pathetic and desperate act.
Why do some people pretend to be Irish on St. Paddy''s Day? There''s something really cool about the melancholy poetry that it means to be Irish--people like that.
Mike MoralezConstruction, Monterey
Do people pretend to be Irish on St. Paddy''s Day? I think everyone is Irish on St. Paddy''s Day.
Okay: A leprechaun vs. Santa in a steel-cage death match. Who wins? Definitely the leprechaun. The leprechaun would lay the smack down on Santa''s candy ass.
How many pints until you can see a leprechaun? About 12.
