“When does the leprechaun cross the road?"/"When it’s green!”

A leprechaun riddle is:

Q: When does the leprechaun cross the road?
A: When it’s green.


“Why did the leprechaun cross the road? Because the light was green” was printed in the Los Angeles (CA) Times on June 21, 2001. “ When does the leprechaun cross the road? When it’s green!” was posted on Twitter on April 17, 2012.

“Why did the leprechaun cross the road?"/"He wanted to reach the pot of gold faster” is a similar riddle with a different punchline.
