…   [feathers rustling]   …   [claws scratching]   …

Er, Phenny. What’s wrong? Aren’t you going to introduce the month of March?

Nope.

What’s the matter? Don’t like the color green?

It’s not so much the green, Ling, as it is the leprechauns.

Oh. Well, I can’t really argue with that. Cheeky little dudes, aren’t they? Let’s hear the editors tell us about their favorite March stories…
