Out of unicorns? Whole Foods can help!

According to Twitterer @taylweaver, a local Whole Foods is stocking unicorns in the same aisle as tea and baking ingredients. Why pets are mixed in with edibles is unclear to us. Unless… Oh no. <:-(

Smash your way to a Skittles jackpot in this new interactive ad!

Okay, technically the Skittles jackpot happens right away. But you get to smash figurines! What’s not to like? Unless you’re this guy’s grandma…

Facing Turkish customs? Use a unicorn’s passport! 

This may be the greatest news story of the year. Scratch that - the entire decade. A 9-year-old girl named Emily Harris was stamped and permitted through Turkish customs using a passport with her unicorn’s name and picture on it. 

Just more evidence that a unicorn really can do anything!

Unicorns = 1

Government Officials = 0

Don’t have enough attention span for a video? A celebration of unicorn .gifs, courtesy of @persephone_mag!

We love photos of unicorns. We love videos of unicorns. But what about when we want something in between? Persephone Magazine has the answer: A “Spontaneous .gif Party” of unicorns!

Razzle-dazzle away your workday away with moving frames from Toy Story 3, Juicy Fruit’s Serenading UnicornDespicable Me, and many other hypnotically satisfying images collected by Selena MacIntosh. Isn’t the internet an awe-inspiring thing?

There sure is a lot of hearsay floating about regarding unicorns. If you haven’t already learned everything you need to know from Raising Unicorns, it’s time to invest in that warehouse of enchanting knowledge! But Mental Floss also wants to help out, and their facts are less hysterical and more historical. <:-)

Internet Explorer wants to teach you about unicorns. 

This catchy diddy called “Things Aren’t Always What They Seem” is part of Internet Explorer’s new BrowserYouLovedToHate.com campaign. Although we’re not sure how IE will help you learn about unicorn legitimacy - IE is a browser, not a search engine - we are intrigued by all the questions that the song stirred up. While we would love to add some answers to the comments, that section is disabled on the video’s YouTube page. So here is what we would post if we could:

"Yes, unicorns are real! No, their manes are not made from mustaches!"

Slurpee Dance summons unicorns and 8-bit joy. 

Sadly, we received this link after 7-Eleven’s Slurpee Day occurred earlier in July. Nevertheless, we were convinced you staunch unicorn advocates needed to witness this dubstep mindtrip that calls forth old video games, cartoons, and unicorns to join in the brain freeze revelry. Bonus points if you can figure out what the actual steps are to this new craze awkwardly sweeping US discotheques! 

“The Montville Recreation Department has planned two Fairy Camps for girls aged 4-8. The Happy Dance Summer Camp will keep little fairy princesses busy with crafting, gardening, sprinkler fun, playing dress-up, face painting, and up-dos. Camps will end with a tea party. The first session will be Fairies & Unicorns, Aug. 5-9, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the Montville Community Park Field House. Fairies will meet a new creature from la-la land each day — unicorns, dragons, mermaids and rainbow fairies.”

Fairy Camp opens in - who knew? - New Jersey! 

Who says Jersey has nothing more to offer than big hair, orange tans, and grammatically-flawed attitude? Well, probably anyone who has watched reality TV in the past 5 years. But the Montville Recreation Department wants to prove that stereotype wrong - with unicorns!

So don your fanciest princess dress, grab $135 from mom’s purse, and get ready for a week of fairy-friendly make-believe! 

Oh, wait. It’s only for girls ages 4-8. Sorry, this guy.

Now you can walk uncomfortably with Unicorn Hooves!

Etsy designer Oonacat wants you to feel like a unicorn. Apparently, that means wearing heelless boots that leave hoof tracks behind you. These customizable boots are handmade and quite dazzling in their details, all the way down to fur effect framing the hooves!

And, to be fair, the boots do include gel inserts “for comfort”. Which is a relative matter, of course. <;-)

Unicorn’s magical dandruff sweetens any treat! (via @spinninghatltd)

Have you ever looked at a cupcake’s sprinkles and thought, “I wonder if those came from a unicorn’s mane?” Spinning Hat answers that unspoken query with a multicolored “YES!” with their Unicorn Sprinkles Shaker, retailing for £7.99. 

We’re not sure what is next on their list of fantastic food-wares, but we’re hoping it’s a Chimera Culinary Torch.
