North Korean Researchers Find ‘Unicorn Lair’, Demand to Be Taken Seriously

thNorth Korea sure has been making some pretty outrageous clams as of late, including the discovery of a “Unicorn Lair”.

They say they are ready to nuke the U.S. They say that North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un is “the sexiest man alive for 2012″ after The Onion ran a satirical article (which attracted worldwide attention after China’s Communist Party newspaper apparently neglected to confirm it was a joke and published it as fact). They report report that Kim Jong-Il shot a 38 under par round of golf – including 11 holes-in-one – on his first and only attempt at the sport.They even say that Kim Jong-Un had invented a new snack that could cure the nation’s hunger problems called “the double bread with meat” (sounds like a hamburger to me).

But their latest clam takes the cake.

North Korean researchers raised eyebrows around the world by announcing that they have proved the existence of the unicorn.

The official state news agency says archaeologists “confirmed” the existence of a “unicorn lair” in Pyongyang, once used by an ancient Korean king.
The Korean Central News Agency reports that archaeologists made the extraordinary discovery when they found a rock carved with the words “unicorn lair” 200m from the city’s Yongmyong temple. The report quotes Jo Hui Sung, director of North Korea’s History Institute.

Jo Hui Sung said “Korea’s history books deal with the unicorn, considered to be ridden by King Tongmyong, and its lair. The temple served as a relief palace for King Tongmyong, in which there is the lair of his unicorn.” Explaining how the find coincides with information in history books from the 16th century.

Jo Hui Sung claims that the unicorn discovery “proves” that Pyongyang in the north was “a capital city of Ancient Korea as well as Koguryo Kingdom”.

Others have suggested the story has a political aim – to assert the supremacy of North Korea over its southern neighbor. Maybe they could try by feeding their population next.

All I know is that this is some very strange news. It might be a month late, but that’s O.K, it’ll be weird forever.
