North Korea announces “Unicorns are Real!” Who are we to mock them?

You know that “axis of evil” state? The one we’re worried about attacking us?

On Thursday, the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), the North Korea’s government mouthpiece, said scientists “reconfirmed” the location of the burial site of the unicorn ridden by King Dongmyeong, the founding father of the ancient Korean kingdom of Goguryeo (37 BC-668 AD). (source)

Of course, we mock it. But who are we to mock the North Koreans for claiming that their ancient king rode a unicorn? Do you remember which country this is? One where Roy Moore got reinstated as an Alabama Supreme Court justice. We live in a country where 46% of the population believes that a magic space man created mankind at some point in the past 10,000 years. (source)

Some people believe in unicorns. Some people believe that a guy who was his own father, impregnated a virgin and then lived for 33 years without a job, and then got killed but still lived and now you eat him on Sundays, and because of that, gay people shouldn’t get married.

  1. Of course unicorns are _exactly_ as real as infinite bearded sky-daddies!

    Sadly, the fact that Kim Jong Un thinks people will believe his BS about unicorns underlies the fact that he thinks he can attack the US (or whoever the missile crashes out of control on), it doesn’t negate it. Ditto with Jewish ex-carpenter zombies and evolution, science, fitness to hold office…

    I wonder what Pat Robertson will say in response? That unicorns and talking donkeys were in the Wholly Babble first? (Oh no, a unicorn race!)

    You shall not mock the Holy Zombie. :-)

    I guess you don’t have to be Christian to be stupid.

  4. No. You don’t have to be Christian. But it helps. The King James version of the bible has nine references to unicorns.

    Sigh. Most scholars admit that the unicorn references really applied to rhinoceroses, but that just begs the question, doesn’t it?
