North Korea claims discovery of unicorn lair

Little children everywhere can now rejoice: unicorns are real.

The North Korean state news outlet, Korean Central News Agency, reported on Thursday that archaeologists have “recently reconfirmed a lair of the unicorn rode by King Tongmyong, founder of the Koguryo Kingdom.”

According to the article, the magical creature’s den is marked with a rock sign carved with the words “unicorn lair.” The carving supposedly dates back to Koryo Kingdom, 918-1392 C.E.

As the “TODAY Show” reports, the KCNA has previously asserted “that its late leader, Kim Jong Il, was born under a double rainbow and once stopped a blizzard.”

And now that North Koreans have verified the existence of unicorns, the discovery of Candy Mountain is surely just around the corner. North Korea! It’s a land of sweets, and joy, and joyness.

    I’m seeing some strange parallels between North Korea and WWII’s Japan. Their leader is considered a deity. I am not set at ease.
