How to Trap a Leprechaun

Step 1:  Hire a Leprechaun Consultant.

Step 2:  Put him to work. It’s a well known fact that Leprechaun Consultants will work for sugar.

Step 3:  Invest in large amounts of glitter.

Step 4:  Admire the Leprechaun Consultant’s work.


Step 5:  Cover everything in white chocolate.

Step 6:  Set your trap, complete with leprechaun bait, and lay in wait.

Step 7:  Consider the possibility that the Leprechaun Consultant and his baby sister tipped off the leprechaun as he is left with a pile of loot and you are left cleaning up green footprints and green pee.

Step 8:  Eat all the left over leprechaun bait and realize that with a side of Diet Coke, it might actually be renamed “Mommy Bait.”
