Not exactly groundbreaking "journalism," but this WPMI report might be the greatest moment in local news history. It's hard to forget the amatuer sketch that looks like it was drawn by a third grader, or the guy with the bulletproof vest and special leprechaun flute that was passed down for generations. WHO ELSE SEEN THE LEPRECHAUN SAY YEAH!!!

After the story went viral, Bill O'Reilly played it on his show and proclaimed that it was playing into racial stereotypes. You hear that, people—Bill O'Reilly will NOT stand for racism!
