Unicorns Really Do Exist (And They’re Asian)

September 17th, 2010 | 3 comments | Posted by Jen

First the good news: Unicorns do exist!  And they’re Asian!

Now the bad: The so-called “Asian Unicorn” actually has two horns.

But back to the good news: An “Asian Unicorn”–an animal that was only discovered in 1992, hasn’t been photographed since 1999, and is listed as critically endangered–was sighted and captured last month in Laos!

Now again with the bad: The poor little guy (pictured below) died a few days later, “weakened by the ordeal in captivity,” according to local authorities.

The moral of this story?

Dreams really do come true!

And then they die.

Happy Friday!

Don’t hate, integrate.

I was trying to give Andrew bunny ears, but I ended up throwing an Asian peace sign instead. Yo, I think that's racist.
