A Leprechaun is a type of fairy in Irish folklore, usually taking the form of an old man, clad in a red or green coat, who enjoys partaking in mischief. The Leprechauns spend all their time busily making shoes, and store away all their coins in a hidden pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. If ever captured by a human, the Leprechaun has the magical power to grant three wishes in exchange for their release.
For centuries, Leprechauns have been engaging in financial practices that are suspicious and have given false hope to poor folk telling them that there is gold at the end of yonder rainbow. After totally ruining the Irish economy with their usual promises of financial success to a gullible public, they are now devoting their attentions to Wall Street.
The Wall Street bankers have tried for decades to imitate the Leprechaun ways of smiling deceit and of giving hope of great riches to the general public but now the 3 foot tall, orange bearded, shoe cobblers have taken their fortunes out of giant crock pots, moved from their Irish homeland and taken over the banking system in New York.
Leprechauns are ideal partners for Wall Street bankers, how the little people attained such great wealth on a shoemakers salary is very suspicious. Perfect.
One of their apprentices, Bernie Madoff, committed a major error, he got caught. Madoff’s arrest and imprisonment prompted the decision for the big move. With great pain, the Leprechaun’s donated one of their gold-filled crock pots to Washington D.C., and regulation that would have stifled the centuries-old financial sting was halted. Madoff offered his captors three wishes for his release, but the D.C. people decided they needed a scapegoat, just one will do.
Expect to see rainbows over New York City from now on.
