Did Gulliver Go To Ireland? Or St. Louis?

Leprechaun Levitation

Lilliput, I am told, is far from the intersection of Tucker and Market in St. Louis. Still, this scene might remind one of Swift's fictional Englishman in the land of the tiny.

                               
Just re-arrange the costume a little. Maybe the tiny green figures in the street aren't Lilliputians but leprechauns.  

UMSL

Once Gulliver leaves the Lilliputians, leprechauns or whatever you want to call them, he might choose to skip Brobdingnag and seek the mysterious island of Budweiser.

:-) Or Heineken which happens to be green!

Fantastic reference, the resemblance is striking!

You've got a great eye - the comparison with Gulliver works for me too.

Is the island of Budweiser surrounded by a sea of beer?

Many feel like Gulliver after a few brews.

You have got a lot of parades lately. A nice playground for a photographer.

Funny ... And I think it was Guinness-Land, where Gulliver is gone ;)
