We Found the Gold! (Thanks to the Crichton Leprechaun)

Ok, so you know the gold we’re talking about. 

It’s the gold the Chrichton Leprechaun had up in the tree in 2006.

If, for some reason, you’re giving this screen a blank stare, refer back to this article that gives details about the famous Mobile, Alabama, Leprechaun. It even has its own Wikipedia page.

Let’s start with the flute.

Crichton Leprechaun Flutemaster

So we looked into the flute master.

This guy was keeping people safe on the streets.

He had his flute (we never heard it, so we can’t officially verify).

This specialty flute was passed down through generations.

Well, with all the talk of the leprechaun flute, we have yet to hear the leprechaun jam.

No gold.

Next, we looked into the ‘crackhead lady.’

She had a great point.

She alerted us that maybe it wasn’t a leprechaun after all.

It might have been a crackhead that got some bad product.

And then decided to climb a tree late at night.

This was a great theory that explained the Mobile Leprechaun.

We checked into it.  

No gold.

Lots of Mobile Leprechaun T-shirts.

But no gold.

So what about digging up the gold?

Get our Backhoe and dig up the Gold

The last guy in the original interview had a nice thought.

He wanted to bring out a backhoe and dig for the gold.

Great idea.

We’re still determining if he was ever able to do this.

And in a video a few years later, one source said the tree was no longer.

Did it get cut down?

Did it die?

Did the gold get removed?

We can’t be 100% certain, but we know where the gold is.

The Mobile Leprechaun gold is in the heart of Mobile.

It’s in all of us.

There’s so much good happening all around us.

Yes, of course, bad stuff happens.

But don’t let that overshadow the beauty that’s all around us.

Use the golden rule and treat those around you how you’d like them to treat you.

Be the gold.

Now get out there and Do Some Good.
