Spotted: Leprechaun?

Working for the government as I do, I expect my days to be filled with an endless parade of suits and skirts. This monotony was broken one day when I heard reports from a new hire that an intern had been spotted at orientation wearing a green t-shirt, and sporting matching green hair. I was somewhat incredulous, but fortunate enough to actually run into said intern on the elevator the next day. He had deigned to put on a button-down shirt, but his hair was still a ferocious shade of green. He also had a lip ring. The piece de resistance, however, was that he was wearing the infamous intern khakis - complete with a blue patch right on his rear.
