North Korea Says Its Archaeologists Discovered A 'Unicorn Lair'
NPR ^ | November 30, 2012 | Eyder Peralta

Posted on 12/01/2012 8:32:07 AM PST by teflon9

It's not the first time we've heard fantastical news from North Korea's state news agency. And if you thought the "peculiar natural wonders" would be buried along with the Dear Leader, my were you mistaken.

Today, the Korean Central News Agency said that archaeologists from the History Institute of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea "reconfirmed" the "lair of a unicorn" that was ridden by King Tongmyong.

Via the Japan-based Korean News Agency, which distributes KCNA news, here's a bit more of the breaking development:

"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. The carved words are believed to date back to the period of Koryo Kingdom (918-1392).

"Jo Hui Sung, director of the Institute, told KCNA:

"'Korea's history books deal with the unicorn, considered to be ridden by King Tongmyong, and its lair."

They’re Asian, so I’m guessing a dragon lair.

N.Korean officials also stated that the unicorns were delicious and the horns were ground up for special medicines that cure asthma and increase libido.

It was the fossilized Skittles that really made the confirmation a no-brainer.
