unicorn lairTwo words, people: Unicorn Apocalypse. Awww yeah! That's right, y'all can take your zombies and your vampires and your zombie/vampires and icky ugly monster-y creatures in general and stick 'em where the sun don't shine, because an ancient unicorn lair has been discovered ... in the magical, mystical land of North Korea, of course. North Korea: Come for the labor camps and famine, stay for the sparkly ponies!

If you're waiting for the punchline, by the way, get comfortable. This is no joke. According to a report released by the "Institute of the DPRK Academy of Social Sciences," the legendary lair was found outside a temple in Pyongyang when archeologists spotted "a rectangular rock carved with words 'Unicorn Lair.'"

TADA! There you go, starving oppressed people! Don't you feel better? Sure, your life sucks but LOOK AT THE PRETTY HORSIES!! 

If this unicorn thing catches on in North Korea, just think what a trend this could become for leaders of third world countries looking to distract their yearning masses from the misery of their daily existence! Suddenly, leprechauns will show up in Somalia. Kindly dragons in Darfur. Pegasus in Rwanda!

What mythical, magical creature do you think will be "discovered" next?
