1) Don't drive drunk. You're a grown adult.
2) Don't participate in shitty Irish stereotypes.
3) Don't drink green beer. Seriously, it's whatever the bar's cheapest beer is, with food coloring. Why?
4) Don't rob a bank dressed as a leprechaun.
You heard me.

Perhaps he felt it was a convenient disguise, and that people wouldn't necessarily balk when seeing a grown man in a short-pants green suit and a top hat. Besides, the fake beard would make for an easy-to-ditch facial disguise. What he didn't count on, I guess, is that people notice giant leprechauns running around, even on St. Patrick's Day.
The police were able to get a clear picture of his day, I suppose by asking "Did anyone see a giant leprechaun?" And the story doesn't have a happy ending, either. He and his getaway driver put up chase, but eventually had the ditch their car and run. Details are a little hazy after that, but neither made it out alive.
If you have to choose between drinking green beer like an asshole and robbing a bank dressed like an asshole, I guess drink the beer. But better to do neither.
