Patent on creating a unicorn, and an ancient unicorn lair

NewImage The Korean Central News Agency reports that scientists have "recently reconfirmed" a unicorn's lair in Pyongyang. Not surprisingly, the magical animal itself was nowhere to be found as this is the home of a unicorn said to have been ridden by King Tongmyong, founder of the Koguryo Kingdom (B.C. 277-A.D. 668). How did the scientists know that this was the famed unicorn's lair? "A rectangular rock carved with words "Unicorn Lair" stands in front of the lair." This according to the KCNA, which is the official state news agency, so you know it must be true.

Related, here is a Sideshow World interview with Oberon Zell-Ravnhart who has been "re-creating" unicorns like the one seen above since 1980. In fact, he holds a patent on it. (Thanks, Stacey Ransom!)

  1. … unicorn’s layer in Pyongyang. Not surprisingly, the magical animal itself was nowhere to be found as this is the home of a unicorn said to have been ridden by King Tongmyong

    Hmmm…

    Does nobody proof-read these things?

  2. That’s not a unicorn, that’s a mutated goat! Must not tamper with nature! Gaia will punish us all! 

    (FALLS TO KNEES, QUAKING)

  3. How did the scientists know that this was the famed unicorn’s lair? “A rectangular rock carved with words “Unicorn Lair” stands in front of the lair.” This according to the KCNA, which is the official state news agency, so you know it must be true.

    I’m still trying to see what the prob with this is, unless the carvings are really frauds fabricated by North Korean archaeologists. There are coins and such with Minotaurs on them from Knossos/Crete. That is part of the mythology which also is part of the area’s history. Now if you believe that monsters *actually* were running around despite no proof, then that’s a problem, especially if you’re an archaeologist, it’s also a notion that’s believed by nearly 7 billion of Earth’s citizens.

    1. It quite plainly does have a cornis, which the suffix ‘-corn’ indicates, and which the word “horn” comes from in the first place.
