I believe Terry wrote the bulk of this
with important contributions from Larry Deck. The
Legendary Kevin Johnson, I believe, is responsible for the hilarious
title. Our editorial cartoonist Kristen Palmer did the leprechaun
illustration. Larry's most notable contribution in this article was deep
thinking an acronym for a leprechaun rights group that spells out
LUCKYCHARMS: Leprechauns Upstart Canadian Kinsfolk
Yearning for Change, Hope, and Real Melioration
Terry and I were fascinated by the idea
of leprechauns as immigrants, trying to make their way in Canadian and Windsor society.
We used to feature a leprechaun character on our radio show.
The line about the truffle pig I
contributed. On our radio show, we used to do this other skit about two
children and their pet, Wags the Dog. The kids' favorite pastime was
playing "Wags the Amazing Truffle Pig".
Angus Waugh was a nod to a long time Lance
volunteer named Andrew Waugh.
