Leprechaun Porn Searches Are Up 8,000 Percent On St. Patrick's Day

St. Patrick's Day is one of the greatest excuses to get blackout drunk during the work week, seeing as it's a terrible idea to get hammered when you have work the next morning.

For those not lucky enough to get lucky when the drinking is over, studies show they're keeping up with the spirit of the holiday by watching some good old-fashioned leprechaun porn!

According to a report from Mirror Online, last year's St. Patrick's Day saw an 8,142 percent increase in the days surrounding the holiday. What's even crazier is, "leprechaun porn" is searched quite frequently year round.

According to a PornHub rep who spoke to Mirror,

We checked to see what search terms increase significantly in the days surrounding St Patrick's Day. Believe it or not, some people do search 'leprechaun' throughout the year, but it goes up 8,142 per cent and 'St Patrick's Day' goes up 6,177 percent.

While the numbers for this year's holiday aren't in, porn forecasters are predicting a similar pattern.

Their study also concludes other Irish-centric searches, like "red head," "Irish cougar," "Celtic" and "clover" are seeing a spike in traffic as well.

Whatever floats your boat, people. Just keep that leprechaun sh*t at the crib.
