Boing Boing reader: Recalibrate thyself. One unicorn, one cup. Link, By Ape Lad.
*relief* Whew! I thought the chaser was never gonna get here.
That unicorn should eat sugar (glitter?) free cereal, it looks fat.
This two girls one cup thing is easily the most obnoxious meme out there right now. Way to be on the cutting edge, BB.
Thank you Ape Lad, thank you!
But no thanks to BB for even mentioning the rotten film in the first place…
One Unicorn (named Ursula), lots of girls and in the yellow corner: Bam Bam!
what on earth is going on here?
Imagine what eating a bowl of glitter must taste like. According to Wikipedia, it’s made of paper, glass, or plastic. Forcing a unicorn to choke down an entire bowl of painted paper, glass, or plastic seems cruel. Even with the milk added, the best-case scenario is a gluey paper mush.
Still better than two girls 1 cup.

You never know, though…I mean, my llamas eat blackberry vines, and I would think they would tear their mouths up (like Cap’n Crunch does to humans), but they actually LOVE eating them. Perhaps unicorns have some sort of built in mechanism to allow them to enjoy glitter.
Or, wait, I’ve got it. Unicorns have gizzards, like chickens, except instead of gravel, they use glitter to grind up their food…
Perhaps glitter is actually Unicorn excrement? After all, they are magical creatures and such.
@ poster #7: There is actually confectionery glitter that is used on wedding cakes, cupcakes, etc. Looks exactly like glitter, but it’s made of gum arabic.
Of course, this being a unicorn, it’s probably magical fairy glitter that tastes like sugary beams of sunlight. :)
#6: That’s mundane, human-made glitter. Unicorn-chow grade glitter is made of happy dreams and the giggles of little girls, processed in a solution of lye, sodium benzoate, and brominated Dichromium FunStuff(tm).
#8: To repeat my comment at the site: Unicorns who eat glitter crap sparkles. Rainbow sparkles.
If you gather them quickly and treat them with glycerin, the sparkles will stay bright and colorful for months.
Many ice cream shops sprinkle these rainbow sparkles on their ice cream cones.
You don’t want to know where brown ice cream sprinkles come from.
in the USSR unicorns OWN you!
I’ve thought that adding flourescent glitter to dog food for people who stres about finding their dog’s crap at night.
Long winter nights in Canada don’t allow much daylight time with your dog.
Dog crap is hard to spot sometimes a little sparkle in the pile will make it easier to find
Aaaand once a unicorn snarfs down a bunch of glitter, it excretes glittery turds!!
How’sthis[explodingdog] for a unicorn chaser?
You know that was the ultimate.
Maybe the glitter is simply those nice little round metallic dragÃ©e. http://www.thebakerskitchen.com/CAKE_SHOPPE/Sugars/Dragees/dragees.htm for those who never had them. Sure they could be “bad” for you but you’re eating little silver sprinkles, how do you loose? ;)
