North Korea 'finds unicorn's lair'
North Korea's official state news agency is reporting that archaeologists have found a unicorn's lair.
The unicorn was said to have been ridden by the ancient Korean King Tongmyong, founder of a kingdom which ruled parts of China and the Korean peninsula.
Normally, the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) specialises in reports on the totalitarian state's unparalleled achievements and love for its leaders, reports The Guardian.
But it now claims that archaeologists in Pyongyang have "recently reconfirmed" a unicorn's lair.
The KCNA says it lies 200 metres from a temple in the North Korean capital, adding: "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)," says the report.
Archaeologists from the Academy of Social Sciences at North Korea's History Institute were credited with making the discovery.

This is right next to the pig's airfield!
it's probably a typo and is Eunuchs lair x
"plot" and "lost" come to mind !!!
Mmmm methinks there is a bit of digital touch up going on here :D

Mmmm me too but it will make thier people believe in their power. They will all surmise the next long range weapon will work!
If that isn't a very poor Photo-shop job nothing is! You would think a country that NOT too long ago tested a nuclear weapon, would have a bit more sofistication, when it came to photo "touch ups!". I mean could they have made the horns any more obvious? If they were any longer the poor naimals would stoop head forwards!! What exactly do the scientists involved hope to achieve? Not only is our leader a "demi-god" but we live in a country of "mystical" animals as well.............YIPPEE...........LETS ALL MOVE TO NORTH KOREA!!...........Pathetic............and people raelly want to bring this "hairy fairy" nation into "the fold"?..........God Help Us!!
Nah, they could have done a far better job if they had used Adobe Photoshop. This is a clumsy piece of editing by some third rate piece of software.
Unicorn horns are shorter and quite a bit thicker, according to my two little darlings anyway!
Hilarious scribbles on the picture. I don't know what to think. If they look hard enough, they might even find their plot and marbles.
Actually they look more like Star Wars sabres.
Whats funny? We laugh at this stuff thats force fed to the people who believe it because they haven't been told otherwise so have no reason to doubt. It's a bit like the rest of the world being force fed religion. The difference is we do have reason to doubt. We have facts, proof and other reasons not to follow yet most do. Tell me who the real fools are? It's all about context.
Now they only have to find the homes of the Tooth Fairies & Pixies!
When u do find out where the tooth fairies live, let me know cos they didnt give me anything for my last tooth so i want to be compensated lol :)
Maybe an Intelligent North Korean will be found soon as well?
