Time to check back in with the fantastical mind of Kim Jong-un. Last time we spoke of the Korean dictator, he gave up on his dream of mating lobsters and turtles. Instead, he settled for developing a breakthrough cure for AIDS, Ebola, and MERS, all in one handy syringe.
Now that North Korea has wiped out the most devastating viruses on the planet, Kim Jong-un has turned his attention to discovering creatures no one truly thought existed. Unicorns? Sure.
North Korea claims to have uncovered a unicorn lair in Pyongyang. The dictator doesn’t actually claim to have seen any live unicorns, but the state Academy of Social Sciences “reconfirmed a lair of the unicorn rode by King Tongmyong, founder of the Koguryo Kingdom.” This dates the unicorns’ existence all the way back to 37 B.C.
All of this unicorn lore boils down to establishing Pyongyang as the one-time capital of Ancient Korea: “The lair is located 200 meters from the Yongmyong Temple in Moran Hill in Pyongyang City. A rectangular rock carved with words ‘Unicorn Lair’ stands in front of the lair.”
Well, if the rock actually reads, “Unicorn Lair,” then this report must be true.
Shine on, you crazy dictator.
