While explaining to my coworkers today that a quarter pound of unicorn rump was on sale for just $5.95 at the local grocery, I decided that I would share these interesting facts about unicorns.
- Unicorn meat is among the leanest, healthiest meat available today.
- After eating unicorn meat, many people report farting stars, particularly if they leap while farting.
- The word “unicorn” means “one corn,” since the unicorn will only eat p-methyl-amino-tetra-ethyl-corn grown in the northwestern steppes of Antarctica.
- Like tuna, a single unicorn can provide sufficient meat for thousands of servings. While roughly the size of a slaughter steer, unicorns are much denser. An average unicorn weighs roughly that of a World War II main battle tank.
- The Native Americans used unicorn hides to build airplanes and suspension bridges.
- Many unicorn horns have been crafted into fine swords, most of which remain in service with our soldiers in Iraq and Jamaica.
- King Louis the XIV had a bowling alley, King Louis Lanes, built for his amusement made entirely of unicorn bones and organs.
- Before switching to White Ash, Major League Baseball teams used milled unicorn horns as bats.
- Unicorns bred in captivity cannot read or do crossword puzzles, and often suffer from hip dysplasia and hyperincontinence.
- Unicorn horns are faintly radioactive. For this reason, most unicorn handlers wear leaded underpants.
- Like the legendary centaur, unicorns are part horse and part man, the human portion of the unicorn being the genitals.
- Unicorn meat has several special characteristics. For example, a microwave oven has no effect on it, since unicorn flesh does not absorb energy above about 76kHz.
- Only two species are capable of interbreeding with unicorns, dolphins and ostriches.
