The leprechaun wants to propose to Karl Koala and uses the romantic moment in front of the Eiffel tower. Unfortunately he has no ring, so he uses a capacitor of which he bent the legs to build a ring. He's quite lucky, because right after he gives the ring to Karl, a thunderbolt strikes and hits poor Karl Koala. Had the leprechaun kept the ring, the thunderbolt would have hit him instead. - Mnemonic by Matthias, about 2 years ago | add a painting
