Unicorn skeleton found at Tower of London!
Unicorn at Tower of London? It’s raven mad
Ravens could be replaced by unicorns as the Tower of London’s best-known creatures. Mysterious remains have been dug up during maintenance work under the White Tower.
Discovery: Chief yeoman warder John Keohane (Picture: Ally Carmichael)
Chief yeoman warder John Keohane believes they could date to a royal menagerie at the Tower between 1235 and 1835 but officials say they might be from prehistoric times.
Experts are puzzled by what looks to be a single, thin horn and, although they are not foolish enough to suggest the remains belong to a unicorn, they hope the fragments could solve the mystery of the mythical beast.
Mr Keohane said: ‘It’s proving to be an amazing discovery. You have to remember, we’ve had animals here for many many years. We’ve had lions, tigers, elephants, monkeys and of course we’ve got the ravens, who’ve been here for well over 900 years.
'This could turn out to be something quite spectacular, who knows?'
Please note: For those of you thinking this all sounds highly unlikely - you were right to be suspicious… it was an April Fools’ joke. Sorry!
On this day, March 28, in 1979, Philadelphia police discovered the corpse of Holly Maddux in the home of hippie guru Ira Einhorn, later dubbed the Unicorn Killer.
Einhorn called himself Unicorn because his name means One Horn, and he hung out with rich benefactors and 1960s radicals like Jerry Rubin and Abbie Hoffman. After his arrest, he hired future U.S. Sen. Arlen Specter as his defense attorney and insisted he was framed by the CIA because of his knowledge of mind control experiments.
He could not explain why his ex-girlfriend’s body was in his closet 18 months after her disappearance, but vowed in court to unmask the “real killer.” But before his trial began, he fled to Europe.
In 2001, Einhorn was extradited to the United States and sentenced to life in prison.

If you’re a fan of unicorns, leprechauns and pots of gold, chances are you’re a fan of rainbows too. The folks at Uncle Milton have released the Rainbow in my Room Projector. This tiny nifty little gadget that can be used as a magical night light, projects a rainbow onto the walls or ceiling of the room it is placed in, depending on how it is positioned. Other than that, it doesn’t do much of anything else, but if you or your kids always wanted a rainbow indoors, this is the closest thing you can get for now. The toy also comes with a window prism disk for you to create real-life daytime rainbows when it’s too bright to use the projector. It is available on sale now for $17.99 on Amazon.
