    leprechaun

    I heard a leprechaun in a movie saying something like Morse the pity, but the Morse part can't be right. So I think he said more is the pity instead, that is, more's the pity. Is that right? Does it mean anything? I am pretty sure I heard the above in the movie, or at least something like that. Maybe someone heard this old expression, or a similar one..

    "More's the pity" is a good colloquial expression with the implication that something is unfortunate - "I failed my exam again, more's the pity".
