    :D

    Great follow up to your previous post (which seemed to summon some trolls). Maggie, you absolutely rock.

    While a horn is a necessary first step, it’s not a unicorn if it doesn’t fart rainbows.

    This happened to my cat, right on the front of his head!  The horn eventually went away on its own.  I don’t know if we took any pictures of it

  4. What luck!  The British Library recently announced the discovery of a long-lost medieval cookbook with, among other things, a recipe on how to cook a unicorn.   Beginning with the phrase “taketh one unicorne”, the unicorn recipe involves marinading the beast in cloves and garlic before being roasted on a griddle.   

    My mouth is watering just thinking about it…

       Cmon now, the english were known for their incredible ability to roast things on the spit, somehow I doubt you’d be cooking something horse sized on a griddle..

  5. I was expecting this post to be about this guy, who turned young goats into “unicorns” by surgically uniting their horn buds.

    Where’s the glitter? I’m not seeing the glitter here.

    As I recall, old sideshows would raise a young goat and use rope and what not to jam its horns tightly together, and after a few years, bam, unicorn.

    That would certainly possibly give you a horse with a horn. It wouldn’t, however, give you a classical unicorn which differs significantly from a horse in having cloven hooves, often a beard, and a tufted tail.
