unicorns, glitter & rainbows

Post by mamakatrien on Thu Nov 15, 2012 5:51 am

Please, can someone explain to me where the connection between unicorns, glitter, unicorns pooping glitter, rainbows, and unicorns eating rainbows comes from?

I have googled it, thought about it long and hard, but I cannot find why or where?

Unicorns just do not have any of those connotations to me....

thank you for demistifying!!!!

Oh, Mamakatrien.

Poor, dear, innocent Mamakatrien.

Sometimes...just sometimes...you can't find true wisdom on Google.

You can only hope to absorb it, over a great length of time, from gurus such as Miss Ronnie or Fesspenter.

On the other hand, you might, like me, sniff a little too much paint, snort a little too much glitter, and then have a moment of pure enlightenment.

One cannot understand the mystical relationship between unicorns, glitter, poop and rainbows with the mind, my sweet. One must feel it with the soul.

Namaste.

And you'd be exactly right. This is a very profound spiritual matter! Wink

ODE to a UNICORN

Unicorn, Unicorn...
Never a frown.
Never let you down.
Loved even by a clown.

Unicorn, Unicorn...
Feeds on milk and honey.
Poops glitter aplenty.
Helps us to make money.

Unicorn, unicorn...
Rub them for good luck.
Never hit them with a truck
Or your luck will suck.

I know *sniff* L!zzie....isn't it *sniffle* just heartrendingly beautiful?

The feel, the very *sob* soul of the prose. Just achingly, timelessly *wail* exquisite.

I need to go and cry a little, now.

I hope you mean the red-and-white-santa people, Suzy, and not the unicorn ones. Because the unicorn-rainbow-poop-glitter thing is obviously 100% accurate!

Mamakatrien, your question prompted me to do some research into the matter. Based upon the following images I am now convinced that unicorns are made from rainbows. As to glitter--must be their dandruff!

The unicorn is mentioned 9 times in the Bible (Numbers 23:22
; 24:8
; Deuteronomy 33:17
; Job 39:9
, 10; Psalm 22:21
; 29:6
; 92:10
; Isaiah 34:7
). Most modern versions of the Bible identify the unicorn as a wild ox. However, the biblical descriptions do not fit a wild ox. The characteristics of the unicorn are as follows:
1. The strength of the unicorn is a major theme of the Bible record about unicorns (Numbers 23:22
; 24:8
; Job 39:11
)
2. The unicorn is wild and cannot be tamed (Job 39:9-12
)
3. The unicorn is a dangerous animal (Psalm 22:21
)
4. The name unicorn means one-horned, although this could possibly refer to one prominent horn.


this is how far I can trace it back - no glittery rainbows yet involved

It seems quite obvious to me. They are all magical... and that is why unicorns poop glitter, rainbows AND butterflies!

Why is it that the idea of unicorns VOMITING rainbows offends me more than the idea of them POOPING them?

Must just be that the vomiting thing is obviously untrue, whereas the reality of them pooping glitter is unquestionably accurate and societally accepted.

Yes. That must be it.

If anyone has seen the animated full-length movie, "Horton Hears a Who" they will remember this line:

Katie: In my world everyone is a pony, and they all eat rainbows, and poop butterflies.

Yes. That must be it.

I'm sure that only the binge drinking unicorns or perhaps unicorns with tummy bugs actually puke rainbows.

Thanks for that insight Doe - that book may have inspired it.
For my peace of mind, I'm going to blame hasbro and their my little ponies for this whole strange mixup...
