Today at a Rainbow Society fundraiser, participants were shocked and disgusted at the behavior of several little people calling themselves leprechauns.
Event organizers stated that the event was to raise awareness of AIDS and HIV within the gay / lesbian community and to raise funds to help those afflicted with the disease. Proceeds from the event was to help pay for medications and hospital fees for patients in need. Organizers said everything was going fine until it came time to cut a symbolic cake for all those birthdays missed by those who died from the deadly disease.
One participant said, "Oh the cake was so beautiful and big. I was so proud of our community organizers for doing this. Then I heard a slow rumble just below the crowds hooting and howling. What came next could only be described as horrible."
As the Grand Marshall of the event was getting ready to extinguish the candles and make a wish, the cake exploded and little people in leprechaun outfits jumped out with pistols and machine guns.
Bystanders said the little terrorists were demanding all their gold and money and made away with all the proceeds from the event.
The ringleader who called himself Lucky, demanded that everyone tell him where the pots of gold were that the Rainbow Society was hiding. He knew there was pots of gold at the event because he was at the end of the rainbow and he was not leaving until he had it all. Several of the little bandits moved through the crowds and robbed them of their jewelry and cash. With the events proceeds and jewelry and cash taken from the participants, the little thieves made off with well over $1.5 million dollars.
Event participants gave police descriptions and pictures of all the thieves. Most were described as being between 3'9" - 4'0" feet tall, wearing green leprechaun hats and suits with shiny black shoes with big chrome buckles. They escaped the scene, by what one bystander described as a miracle, by sliding up a real rainbow. Police are still on the hunt.
