“There’s a unicorn in the barn!”

Nurse: “What the… Who’s that?”
Doctor: “Steve Forti. He had angioplasty. That’s the pseudophedrezone talking. You should have heard what he said during the procedure!”

Sam Hawke said...

Stretch fingers. Crack knuckles. They mocked me for reading fantasy. Grab my sword, leave the literature-lovers cowering behind a chair. Now who's childish, Susan?

Carolynnwith2Ns said...

Grab a bucket and a shovel. They poop sparkles. Start shoveling, saving and storing for posterity.

Debby Small said...

"Thank goodness! I was afraid she'd never come back."

Jeff Deitering said...

I quickly called world renown theoretical biological physicist, Angio Plasty, and informed him my barn phase shifted from the phedrezone to the pseudo phedrezone.

"Well what did you expect when you parked a Ford Bronco next to a Dodge Ram.

Sherry Howard said...

Dear Grandma, Thank you so much! She’s exactly what I wanted. Is that mermaid coming soon? Your Best Boy, Fontleroy

SDC said...

"Meat's back on the menu, boys!"

Lisa Bodenheim said...

With a rainbow horn and sparkle poop, there'll be a pot o' gold but watch out for that leprechaun.

“U Dop. He Dre. Zone

“Who u?”
Dang. “I Op. Last year, unicorn kick your head...”

Jennifer R. Donohue said...

She isn’t the first to show up like this, dull-horned, pregnant flanks lathered. Somehow they know they’ll be safe with me. It’s my calling.

“There’s a unicorn in the barn!”

“What’s it doing?”

“Sneezing, I think.”

“Do they really sneeze rainbows?”

“Looked like snot to me.”

“I’ll look during halftime, get me a beer.”

Dan Castro said...

Eat my hay? Scare my horses? Screw the Wyvern Hydra Unicorn Magical Protection Act (WHUMPA). Get my staff. I’m gonna whumpa some fresh unicorn patties!

Barbara said...

There's a unicorn in my barn!

Treat it well. Otherwise, you may find it up your ass.

DeadSpiderEye said...

Hello, can you get me the number of the glue factory please?

BJ Muntain said...

Not again. Third time this spring. Have to call Unicorn Rehabilitation to come get it. Again.

Claire Bobrow said...

Gol dang it, Pa! This farm-fresh ice cream idea of yorn was already plum crazy. But who ever heard of organic rainbow sprinkles?

CynthiaMc said...

Hire it out for kids' parties.

John Davis Frain said...

There's a unicorn in the barn!

I rubbed the barn lamp. Blue smoke wafted. Then a genie—no, a mermaid—no, the farmer’s daughter appeared. “Three wishes, handsome.”

What unicorn?

Gabby said...

I had rope. I had the saw. The Virgin was proving trickier to find.

Melanie Sue Bowles said...

Surely this isn't your first one?

Megan V said...

QOTKU: There's a Unicorn in the Barn!

Me: The. Shark. Is. On. My. Famn-damily’s. Farm!
WHEEZE Can’t breathe, need pseudophedrezone.
checks heart and an angioplasty.

C.M. Monson said...

Love it and feed it and call it George.

Casey Karp said...

I pound on my sister's door. "Lindy, Mom says to get the squirt bottle and go rescue your filly again!"

BrendaLynn said...

Of course there is.

Michael Seese said...

“There's a unicorn in the barn!”

"Is that so?"

"Promise."

"Let's have a --"

Those were my father's final words.

The doctors still don't believe me. Perhaps “Mr. Spike” can convince them.

Michael Seese said...

I really wanted to write something trippy, in the vein of Lewis Carroll. But this stuff just comes out.

Sharyn Ekbergh said...

I’d put on my prettiest dress, pack my tin whistles, get Ramona, and ask the unicorn to lead me back where it came from.

Dena Pawling said...


High School principal: Barn? What barn? OMG! Where'd that come from?! &*%# senior prank.

Biology teacher: Um, sir? Look inside...............

Jennifer Delozier said...

"There's a unicorn in the barn!"
Cranky-pants face for my son. “What did you use this time? Nanny hates having things strapped to her forehead.”
My wife whispers. “My vibrator’s missing.”

Lennon Faris said...

Which kind?

You know, sparkly or …carnivorous?

Totally sure. Equine internship, pre-dawn mucking stalls –found the horse leg. Dragged me in next.



Hey, where’s Betty?

Marty Weiss said...

Put empty beer barrels on the unicorn carriage. Super-Bowl commercial or not,

three ordinary horses pulling are not as strong as a brace of Clydesdales.

Londyns said...

“Have it paid rent?”
“Do they ever?”
"Who forget to put up scareunicorns?”

“Cows are booing. Unicorn season must have started. Beef tonight for celebration.”

Adele said...

Sweetheart, your Reality Adjuster is awesome, but remember the policeman last time? You have to send him back. And get the horse back, too.

Will MacPhail said...

Humbled by its beauty I approached the beast with hope. The bullet made a mess of an elegant creature that the world would never accept.

Catherine Graham said...

Yes, that's how I've been storing my jewelry. It's not supposed to fraternize with the horses. I need carrots and a metal detector, stat.

Just Jan said...

"Keep it away from the dragon. I don't want its coat singed."

Colin Smith said...

“I’ll notify Merlin at once.”

I sigh and call the General.

“Gerry spy captured.”

War is hell, but these secret codes are getting ridiculous.

katie said...

The ground unicorn horn in the paint makes the barn a portal. It's going to need a fresh coat soon. Are you coming?

Timothy Lowe said...

"Really? Only one?"

One Of Us Has To Go said...

"He could've brought it into the house!"

Me: "Huh?"

"The cake. Colin!"

"Nooo, a REAL one!!!"

*Boyfriend faints*

I'm scared of spiders, he of unicorns.

Kate Higgins said...

Turn off the alarm and go back to dreaming.
This is the best news I've heard in a long, long time...

Kae Ridwyn said...

Edit. Uncapitalise 'unicorn' and 'barn'; comma to replace exclamation mark; add speech marks and dialogue tag.
Ponder. Have I been marking too many student assignments?

Kamikaze said...

“There’s a unicorn in the barn!” she said, not long after I’d slipped inside her. My erection wilted.

Six weeks later: bun in the oven.

roadkills-r-us said...

I lowered my head, looked over my glasses. "You never noticed? And you swear you never drink. How long have you worked on this ranch?"

(Given recent discussions with a friend who's moving toward polyamory, it took me a few seconds to come back to this version of reality.)

Eileen said...

"Hold tight, Unicorn. I Noah guy."

"Noah, wait! I found another..."

"No, there's only one..."

"I see..."

"Sorry Unicorn. It's kind of a couples thing."

Karen McCoy said...

Quick, catch the rainbow vomit! I want to throw it in the face of that Skittles ad executive!

Laina said...

I've got apples in the fridge and I'm not afraid to use them.

Though I am curious how a barn got on my apartment balcony.

Richelle Elberg said...

There's a unicorn in the barn!

And an agent who requested pages 6 months ago just asked for a full. (Really!)

It's a magical day.

RosannaM said...

"Great. And the Phoenix?"
"In the coop."
Livestock protected from Big Foot, Pa and I cozied up to our woodstove with our ambrosia.

AJ Blythe said...

A unicorn in the barn?
Yeah right.
Search the house...
Under beds.
Tops of cupboards.
In the attic.
No booze.
Check barn. There’s a unicorn…

JEN Garrett said...

Oh my!
What to do?
Theatre?
Circus?
Ice Cream Factory? (nah, the poop can’t beat 31 flavors)
Wait, what do you mean, “Just a shadow?”
