A Unicorn Wouldn't Last Ten Minutes in New York





You may have already seen this online. But I think it's a nice example of how one simple, cheap idea can make a million sullen New Yorkers laugh. (OK, "laugh" might be going too far. How about "consider laughing?" Still a remarkable accomplishment.)

hmmm, i haven't seen any recently- and the last one I saw was a boy, and he was rather grumpy. but whatever! and it would be foolish to keep a unicorn in NYC- imagine how hard it would be to get your superintendent to allow one, and how big your pooper scooper would have to be!

It's not original to me, but here's our line for the day:

"As last thoughts go, 'Unicorns are real' isn't bad."

Robert in San Diego, where upon closer inspection the would-be Coatimundis I'd seen raiding my trashcans turned out to be morbidly obese raccoons with attitude problems.

morbidly obese raccoons with attitude problems? i guess it could definitely be worse. they coulda also been rabid, or mutants. or they coulda been ninja-like klepto burglar skunks with lethal claws and attitude problems. or maybe hippos. hmmm

Did you hear, the poe toaster didn't show up this year. But that was all the way back in January. You didn't post about it.

Dear Anonymous:

I'd not willingly get close enough to sumo-wrestling raccoons with teeth to find out whether or not they're rabid.

Oh, and yeah, hippos can mess you up too. Or they can just give you a very nasty mess to clean up.
