Now that the myth of the giant squid is proven, perhaps unicorns and elves, even Santa Claus himself are next in line to be discovered. Whatever the case, this scientific, historical, even social development changes the face of legends."
I hate to sound all brigadoonish, but unicorns do exist! Somewhere I have some pictures of my daughter Joy with one, and another one of said unicorn trotting down a dirt road....I'll see if I can find them. Until I do, just picture the Cluny tapestries, and you'll be geting the idea. The scale is wrong, those uni's are a bit too big and their horns are too long.........

Speaking of which, the local specialty is deep fried unicorn testicles. Not bad, but they smother them in ketchup. I think they would be better as kebobs, with a little mushroom and onion, sprinkled with grated horn just before serving.
Grilled cheese, tomato and pixie is pretty good to, the cheese and tomato give something for the dust to stick to, which incidentally tastes kinda like roasted garlic.
