Been There, Didn't Get the T-Shirt
A “bunch of leprechauns” beat up a man in Belltown on Saturday, the bruised and bloodied victim told police.
Police say they received reports about the fight around 1:55 a.m. on Bell Street near the Alaskan Way Viaduct, but when they arrived they saw numerous people running from the scene.
Police then saw a man on the ground, who was covered in blood and holding his head and screaming in pain.
When police asked the man who was involved in the fight he said, “It was a bunch of leprechauns,” that were mad because he was dancing with a girl, according to police.
He told police one of the assailants was wearing a white tank top, but could not provide any more details about the leprechauns.

Hmmm. If I was a jerk, would I rather claim to have been beaten up by a gang of leprechauns or by a flock of young ladies who took exception to my attempts to separate one of them from their sisters-in-drinking? Hmmm.

I knew just what I was dealing with, officer, the moment I saw the white tank top.

...and I thought leprechauns were nice.
Or maybe they were just drunk leprechauns .
Is this a private fight or an anyone join?

Not "all the time," you know. Just once a year.
