Famous Leprechauns from Pop Culture
We’re all familiar with them. The little fellas with green outfits and a pot of gold, or cereal if you’re THAT leprechaun. Anyway, a list of famous leprechauns celebrated throughout the media seemed like a good idea at the time. Then I remembered that spooky ass evil Leprechaun. Oh well, too late now.
Probably the most popular of the bunch. Sure, the box is now filled with just marshamallows and they come in thirty-seven types, but it’s sugar you can pour milk on. Originally, it had been oat cereal with little pieces of circus peanuts mixed in. Nothing says breakfast like the taste of oats and Styrofoam.
The teeniest man in the WWE! Not to mention the fact that the interaction with Degeneration X is the stuff of legend!
Now to make a bipolar switch south we go from a little guy hawking sugary cereal to, you guessed. The Leprechaun. That little demon who has been torturing people for six flicks. The little bastard even went in space once for crying out loud.
Here’s a few of those trailers for Leprechaun!
And we can’t forget Darby O’Gill And The Little People. Not only is it full of leprechauns, but we get The KING of the leprechauns! Seems King Brina is a bit of a jerk, but an honorable one. And, seriously, when’s the last time you heard Sean Connery sing?
Leprechauns attack us in so many commercials and cartoons that it boggles the mind. Even Adult Swim’s, Harvey Birdman, Attorney At Law gets in the act. Of course they have the world’s largest leprechaun with a guy named Shado.
From the world of College and Pro sports respectively come two Leprechauns we’d love to see beat the stuffing out of one another, but we all know it’ll never happen. Even if it could, we all know Notre Dame would find an excuse not to yet bitch about why it can’t be in the same league. Damn whiners.
So, fear them, drink with them, get your grubby little mitts on their pot of gold and demand your wishes, leprechauns are here to stay and for the most part it looks like their job is to make us miserable.
