She says those ludicrous, leechin’, lyin’, lawless, lallygaggin’ Leprechauns are livin’ large and lavish all over the forests of Hard Labor Creek State Park in Rutledge! Plus Momma says they ain’t just sippin’ dandelion tea neither! Oh no siree! Honey, those small Irish green-suited, pointy-shoed elves are dousin’ their tea with a heap of White Lightning’ ‘cause they flat stole barrels and barrels of Momma’s famous spirited recipe!
