NK Has Really Good Acid

from the Atlantic: http://www.theatlanticwire.com/global/2012/11/north-korea-says-they-unearthed-unicorn-lair/59483/


North Korea Has Found a Secret Unicorn Lair, Apparently




"Archaeologists of the History Institute of the DPRK Academy of Social Sciences have recently reconfirmed a lair of the unicorn rode by King Tongmyong, founder of the Koguryo Kingdom," reports the wait. Stop. UNICORNS? That's an actual snippet from a report from the Korean Central News Agency, the state news agency of North Korea and fine, okay, we totally understand that this might be a retaliatory joke in response to China getting fooled by The Onion naming Kim Jong-un the Sexiest Man Alive or something.



Jo Hui Sung, director of the Institute, told KCNA:

"Korea's history books deal with the unicorn, considered to be ridden by King Tongmyong, and its lair.

And these are the history books Hoi Sung is talking about :

The Sogyong (Pyongyang) chapter of the old book 'Koryo History' (geographical book), said: Ulmil Pavilion is on the top of Mt. Kumsu, with Yongmyong Temple, one of Pyongyang's eight scenic spots, beneath it. The temple served as a relief palace for King Tongmyong, in which there is the lair of his unicorn.


And there's more. It's not like this is a National Enquirer/Bat Boy type of fleeting story. This one has significance It looks like North Korea is using the unicorn lair to prove a bigger point:

The discovery of the unicorn lair, associated with legend about King Tongmyong, proves that Pyongyang was a capital city of Ancient Korea as well as Koguryo Kingdom.

1. "Lair"?

I get this image of a bunch of unicorns sitting around a table playing cards and drinking whiskey.

14. Margaret Cho's middle name is Moran.

Apparently, it's the Korean name of a flower.

15. go figure

. . . here in the blogosphere, it's a moniker for ignorant republican supporters.



I'm sure Cho could appreciate that.

13. very deadly

from the artist:

"I realize this isn't really a "ha-ha funny" kind of cartoon, but, well, I found myself pretty much unable to stop drawing once the idea took hold in my brain, and it would have been a shame to let it go to waste. And in case you were wondering, yes, those are vegans that Awesome is laying waste to with his cured meat spears of justice. After all, he wouldn't dare hurt a real person."

10. yes, they found the lair by following a trail of rainbow colored glitter

which eventually led to a nest of lollypops and chocolate hidden in a sugar crystal cave.

Man, that's one flatulent unicorn.

18. No different from the people who find biblical locations

If an old book says its true, it must be, right?

By coincidence, at noon this very day I was informed that unicorns aren't fictional, just extinct, because they're in the Bible. I swear it happened.
