Gay Travel: Unicorns Discovered, Finally A Reason To Vacation In North Korea!

North Korea has Unicorns

Hello Jet Blue… or anyone who wants to fly to sunny North Korea!

We normally wouldn’t like to sit through anti-American propaganda and look at endless murals of Kim Jong-il, but North Korea may have just increased its gay tourism by about 1,000,000% after announcing that they, in fact, have a Unicorn Lair.

And while the CIA has long been searching for weapons of mass destruction, this, clearly, is the treasure the North Koreans were hiding all along.

The sad part about all of this is, however, LGBT rights are not supported or even acknowledged in North Korea. But if you’re a masochistic unicorn lover like we are, seeing that beautiful lair could be worth the trip. We’ll disguise ourselves as a countryman from any country North Korea allows in (are there any?) and totally do our best to play things down. Until we find the lair of course.

Minor problem however, we will not be able to add a photo to Instagram of this mythical lair as you cannot take mobile phones into North Korea. NK, can you change this?  We are fairly certain Instagram’s mission statement is to take quirky photos of Unicorn Lairs for the masses to see.

In the meantime, we are currently brainstorming ways to make sure we will not be outdone by the North Koreans. We must find a Unicorn Lair in the U.S. We are of course happy to volunteer our time to look. In fact, we’ve already started and there are none in our apartments, desks or local KFCs. Will you join the fight?

When I was 10 years old, I drew this Unicorn from the wrong country.
