Uni-‘corny’? Mashable calls Paris Hilton’s new music video torture to unicorns

Laughing is good for you, but corny? How about uni-corny?

While researchers have not reached a conclusion whether the act of laughing actually makes people feel better, a good sense of humor and positive attitude sure don’t hurt. Hence, I feel obligated to re-share a Mashable story on Paris Hilton’s newest ‘unicorny’ music video. After watching the video (I am sorry, I couldn’t help it!), I agree with reporter Brian Anthony Hernandez wholeheartedly — “unicorns everywhere wept after watching Paris Hilton torture one of their own kind in… ‘Come Alive’ music video.”

The majestic creature was described by 5th century Greek physician and historian Ctesias as: white, powerful creatures with red heads, dark blue eyes and singular, multi-colored, foot-and-a-half-long horns.

And modern unicorns, like Lisa Frank’s unicorns, is resplendent in its rainbow-y, colorful splendor. The company, founded in 1979, has since become a global franchise of stationary and merchandise.

Another modern unicorn is Beanie Babies Mystic the Unicorn.

“Once upon a time so far away
A unicorn was born one day in May
Keep Mystic with you, she’s a prize
You’ll see the magic in her blue eyes!”

And Rapidash, a fire-type Pokémon that was part of the craze in the ’90s.

Oh, and check out these mind-blowing unicorn products. Unicorns are great, I love rainbows too. But seriously, some ideas just don’t work.

Unicorn pencil sharpener? Oh hell no. All these gut-twisting uni-abomination just goes to prove that unicorns are mystical creatures that were never meant to be ‘real.’
