Michael, Seamus and Paddy were out walking one day, when they came across a friendly Leprechaun, who kindly took them to the top of his rainbow where they sat for a while just admiring the view.
“If you slide down the rainbow”, the Leprechaun said to them, “and you shout out something on the way down, to be sure you will find it at the bottom”.
So, Michael jumped and slid down the rainbow. As he was sliding down he shouted out at the top of his voice, “gold”.
When he reached the bottom of the rainbow and got up off the ground, to his amazement he found he had landed in a huge pot of gold.
Next, Seamus gave himself a push, slid down the rainbow and shouted out at the top of his voice, “silver” on his way down.
He too was surprised to find that he had landed in a huge pot of silver.
Finally it was Paddy’s turn.
He took a flying leap, slid down the rainbow at great speed, arms and legs going everywhere. As he slid down the rainbow he shouted out “wheeeeeee”!”
