"Things You Wouldn't Know If We Didn't Blog Intermittently."
Was it here, or was it somewhere else I read that - 'a unicorn is just a horse which comes to a point' ?
Not here. I've seen it attributed to Terry Pratchett's 'The Wee Free Men.'
Well, I never would have thought of using a large, partially used candle for a horn. I mean, a cone of paper would probably work better, but points for originality I guess.(Yes, yes, I know. I'm trying to block it out.)
I hope this was posted by, or with the happy agreement of, a now-grown unicorn who looks back with a laugh. If it's a recent picture, it shouldn't have been posted at that site (which looks like it's mostly older photos, but not all). Kids are usually deeply invested in their home-made costumes, and I'd hate to see someone held up to public ridicule when they should be proud of the effort and creativity.
embeetee: Well, learning your creativity doesn't always succeed when executed poorly is a valuable lesson. I think you owe it to the kid to point out that they have a dildo on their head.
