Think about this for a moment. When was the last time that you saw a female leprechaun? Probably never, but if you have please share the pot o’ gold with me. The reason that you have never seen a female one, aside from them being as fictional as a unicorn, is because leprechauns are always male. They seriously are. I mean even the cold-blooded killing machines that are the Smurf had a female in their midst. But then again, these little guys are complete loners in the world. So why exactly are leprechauns always male?
Right about now I could make any number of inappropriate jokes. You know, sexist ones, racist or homophobic jokes. Sure, they’re funny, but probably best not mentioned here. But perhaps they are just greedy little sods that don’t want to share their loot with their families, or maybe the reason that we only see males is because being creations from a period far displaced from todays morals, the male of the household were the ones that did the manual labor. Or perhaps it’s just a simpler explanation.
