Also, did you know that the image of a unicorn likely came from Africa, where explorers would see different horned animals, like the oryx, whose two long, thin horns may look like a single horn from a distance, and the rhinoceros, which also has horns and...vaguely resembles a horse, I guess.

Normally I'm a huge fan of this comic, but I find the ableist language in this particular post and its alt-text really upsetting.

i like that, batshua; let's make this the official grievance thread. personally, i don't like how alcohol is usually portrayed in a negative light, either for drunken anger, indulgence, or mediocrity. as an alcohol drinker myself, i think you miss the point on those.

as far as this unicorn goes, maybe you should have a followup where he's playing MURDERBALL!

This reminds me of Charlie the Unicorn. I guess that's who they needed the kidney for!

This unicorn needs those pessimist/optimist/sadist glasses to come along and liven up his day...or something like that.
