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.
Artist Rose Briccetti created this work for Regretsy, an Etsy metablog, as a commissioned work. The creative brief spotted on Etsy and republished by Regretsy editrix "Helen Killer," demanded "Lady Gaga in one of her bizarre outfits hunched over a unicorn carcass, blood all around her mouth." Go check out the full-sized image at Regretsy, along with the story of how it came to be.
[via BB Submitterator, thanks Eric Harley! Note: an earlier version of this blog post implied that "Helen Killer" issued the creative request herself, and she did not. The language of this post has been clarified.]
You have been marketing a product called "Radiant Farms Canned Unicorn Meat" using the slogan "Unicorn - the new white meat." ... National Pork Board is the owner of THE OTHER WHITE MEAT® in the United States and elsewhere around the world, and owns the following federal trademark registrations.
Excellent source of sparkles.
The legal rationale in these situations is often that you can't let someone so much as whisper your trademark in vain lest it be genericized or otherwise diluted; thereby implying that the threat is empty, and just to demonstrate active defense of the mark should a 'real' case ever arise. But I'm sure someone got paid for writing that 12-page letter.
