Mister Ed Craigslist ad says unicorns for sale

A Craigslist ad placed in New Hampshire has raised eyebrows for offering two "purebred" unicorns for sale. The cost is a paltry $1.86 million.

I saw these. I figure I'm in trouble now. I promised my 5yo that I would buy her a unicorn "as soon as I saw one for sale." I've tried to explain to her that unicorns are mythical but she insists I'm just not looking "in the right state." Apparently she's right and now I have to come up with $2mil because I, stupidly, never put a price cap on my promise!

So anybody want to buy an angora goat with a grafted horn for a sucker price?

Goat

Ringling Brothers pulled this stunt back in the 80s. IIRC, the procedure involved surgically moving the horn buds to the center of the head (when the goat was still quite young), the result being that they'd grow as one horn.

You know, looking at the horn in the picture, it seems like that goat could do some real damage with that unihorn. Normally an angora goat's horns curve back and out, which could definitely cause some blunt force trauma. But the horn the "unicorn" goat is sporting could go right through you!
