Have You Hugged Your Unicorn Today?

While re-indexing old posts, it has come to my attention that I have not blogged about unicorns since 2013 -- SIX YEARS AGO!

How can this be?

I must jump in my UNICORN CAR and REMEDY the situation at once.


Unicorns get such a BAD RAP in our society. Their CUTENESS prevents them from ever being taken SERIOUSLY.


Plus, unicorns are CONSTANTLY HARASSED by narwhals and their lawyers. It's a VENDETTA, I tellz ya!


And yet, WHO AMONG US does not love unicorns? The whimsy and charm of unicorns can bring a smile even to the most HARDENED of HEARTS.


So just let me end on a POETIC NOTE --


Actually, more than a whole BAGFUL of them!


SPARKLE ON!

I LOVE what they did with the 64 mustang at the top of this post.

Hello Debra, The narwhal cartoon is too cute. It's such a good idea, in fact, that I am going to report you and this post to the Narwhal Group for copyright violation and collect my referral fee!

That car seems dangerous and unicorns aren't dangerous...are they?

jadedj said...

That so-called unicorn car is dubious. Everyone knows (most everyone, that is) that unicorns drive Mini Coopers (limited edition). I mean, really...a muscle car?

I am a little unicorn. Always happy. Never glum. I dance and jump and frolic. Shooting rainbows out my bum.

I totally adore unicorns. Have them all through my living room....but none in the shape of car. That would go great in my fantasy section.

Hugging a unicorn is something to be approached carefully. They are pointy at one end and farty at the other, and apparently ridden by Death in the middle.

Looking carefully at the unicorn car, the mustang logo on the front has a unicorn horn added. It's just barely visible in this picture, but if you look at other photos of 64 mustangs, the extra line isn't there. So clearly the unicorn car had to be a mustang, so that even the logo could be unicornized.

Back in the early 70's when I was just a kid, I remember my aunt collecting Unicorns. It was the thrill of the hunt to find them and they were beautiful and not cheesy. Then fast forward to the 80's when they caught on and then everywhere you looked - Unicorns. These past few years they've caught on again and we're literally saturated with everything Unicorn. Oh Consumerism!

I would like to take this moment to thank the people at Squatty Potty, who make Unicorn Gold. Because I don't poop rainbows, this stuff (pre-poop spray) protects the next john user from a gagging death! Unicorns are indeed magical.

They made it onto Noah's ark, after all.

Susan said...

I think I must have that car. I am ashamed to say that I do not have a unicorn in my life at present. I will work to fix that.

Joanne Noragon said...

I've never thought much about unicorns.

Marie Smith said...

Lol. I have to tell the one about the unicorn farts to the grandkids.

mistress maddie said...

Well then you'd love New Hope..there are many unicorns around here, either that or I've HAD TO MUCH GIN.

Leanna said...

BWAHAHAAAHAHAHAAAAHAA! unicorn farts.

Missy George said...

Those cars look deadly..Love the bag of farts.

DEZMOND said...

I'm guessing their farts smell like bubble gum?

MrsDuncanMahogany said...

LOL...the minion one! :)

bobbie said...

I've been in love with Unicorns for ages now ~ I have a 3 ft. tall stuffed one that guards the entrance to my studio!
Thanks for the big smile!

Rain said...

Great post! I would think that Unicorn farts must be very sweet smelling, hmmm...not sure I'd open that bag though! :)

jono said...

Once those farts are gone, they're gone! Better keep them safe!

e said...

I think we could debate whether or not unicorns have wings but then some killjoy would come along and try to scold us by saying that unicorns aren't real. To hell with that! Unicorns are real in my world! But, they don't have wings. The foals of Pegasus have wings, I mean, come on!

Adam said...

My niece likes them.

When I ran my ceramic shop unicorn were one my better sellers...Sparkle on my friend.
Coffee is on

Fundy Blue said...

HaHa! Having taught second and third grade girls many years, I am very familiar with unicorns, Debra!

Martha said...

HAHA! So funny. I do like unicorns :)

Magic Love Crow said...

AntiquityTravelers said...

I think I was to drive that car ... how fun would that be, and driving like you don't care who the hell was staring at you

bj said...

Magaly Guerrero said...

Thank you sooo much! I've just answered the old question: What will I give so and so for Valentine's Day. That bag of unicorn farts looks perfect.

^.^ said...

Thank U 4 makin me smile 2day, friend D. Much love, cat.

Sooo-this-is-me said...

One of the memes made me think of a quote...
May be innocent
May be sweet
Ain't half as nice
As rotting meat

Now mizzz she who seeks, what unicorn movie does that come from? I'm going to be so disappointed if you don't know! ;)

"Out from the darkness
Rises a creature so deadly
Here to steal your soul
The underworld unicorn
Unknown hero of the night."

Great post Debra!!
Hugs

Valerie said...

Have you read "The Last Unicorn" by Peter Beagle? A little more serious than unicorn farts, but well worth it.

Debra She Who Seeks said...

@ Valerie -- No, I have not read it but I've now put it on my "to read" list -- thanks!

Rommy said...

I love the Last Unicorn. I think I need to add it to my re-read list this year. Also, please tell me the car horn for that mustang is the My Little Pony Theme or the "I'm Aaaaa-liiiiiiiiiiiiive" part of the theme song for The Last Unicorn.

Sandy said...

Sparkle on made me laugh. I can't say I've given much thought to unicorns, but your pictures were fabulous and it was a fun post.

Guillaume said...

Blonde Tickler loves unicorns. I am more into dragons.

Ur-spo said...

I think the rule is if I hug a unicorn it dies.

JoAnn ( Scene Through My Eyes) said...

Gotta love those unicorns - they always make me smile!

The Happy Whisk said...

I'm always a fan of fart jokes.

LL Cool Joe said...

Unicorns are really popular now. A wee bit too girly for my liking but my Granddaughter loves them.

baili said...
