Damn Leprechauns

This a is a leprechaun trap. The Keep Out sign is to appeal to their mischievous nature. The shiny tin foil is to lure them in. They see the quarter, pull it, the string pulls the pencil, the box drops down.

You've caught a leprechaun!

At least that's how it's supposed to work in theory.

This is what we woke up to this morning. Those leprechauns are smart!

Wishing we hadn't just thrown out the pizza box. I might have made one of these while the kids were gone and then reported the havoc that ensued in their absence. I guess I could still do that anyway.....

So -- does this mean you now have snails AND leprechauns running amok in your house?

Sandra, the snail is in captivity. And, shockingly, still alive. We have learned our lesson.

Thanks Art. It was a nice combination of whimsy and functionality.

Sue Ann, I must admit, we were pretty proud of our handiwork.
