Would be better on a gryphon.

These are strangely compelling.

Why is the internet so much in love with unicorns?

Funny, I was just thinking Robocop on a Unicorn.

A long time ago when the earth was green
And there was more kinds of animals than you've ever seen,
And they run around free while the earth was bein' born
And the loveliest of: Robocop on a Unicorn.

The only way this could be better is by adding Roy Orbison and wrapping it in cling film.

Coincidentally, I saw this one last night in TF2 as somebody's spray. I lol'd.

What happened to the unicorns? Were they hunted out?

One for AskMe I suppose.

What happened to the unicorns?

Dethklok summoned an ancient lake troll.

I'm surprised there's no "Yes We Can"-themed bumpersticker in that set.

Does anyone know where I can get some nuke?

I did. This is what I got, an original MOTU concept sketch/drawing by illustrator Ruby Obrero. Irrelevant of course but sweet.

Very very sweet.

What happened to the unicorns? Were they hunted out?

They were trapped by a "Red Bull." I learned that in this very artistic documentary.

I think we know what "Nuke" is now. YEP. Robocop rides The Last Unicorn! Squee! They are frends! It all makes sense now. On! To justice! Red Bull gives you wings... but at the expense of Horns! Unic-horns of glittering magical ivory!! REPENT! SHEEP!

Why is the internet so much in love with unicorns?

That is because the internet is a 12 year old girl... Or somehow the internet has probed my mind and put to of my favorite things (robocop and unicorns) in the same place.

Of course, this thread requires me to link to YakYak's very NSFW thread Shit Pictures Of Unicorns.

Damn it! :( I wanted to make the "The Last Unicorn" reference. I love that movie! To this day you can't sit down to a family meal with my family and have a glass of wine with out some one quoting the drunken skeleton.

I think my superior "Paint" skills really improved this shit picture of a unicorn.

He may be on a unicorn, but is he bleeding?

Augh, drezdn beat me to it. CURSE YOU DREZDN! (shaking fist in exaggerated manner)

You only bleed if you mount the wrong part of the unicorn.

Trust me on this.

I had an idea a while ago that I think would be a sure-fire moneymaker: develop a Norman Rockwell/Alex Ross-y "realistic" painting style, and then paint scenes of 80s and 90s pop culture icons doing wacky things-- say, Mario threatening to cut Pac-Man's pretty face with a broken beer bottle. Then put the paintings up for sale on eBay and let the sweet, sweet nostalgia cash roll in.

I would pay cash money for a picture of the cast of Full House engaging in a Black Mass in order to prolong their careers and ensure a bountiful harvest this season.

Hey look! It is a picture of two things together which normally do not go together!

Mattoxic, I'm right here. Hey, people, I needed the money, okay? This year's been rough.

Could it be any more awesomer?

No.

OK, maybe.

I would shell out my last dollar to have a copy of that!

Unicorn VS. evil cyberdolphin more like it.

and by the way m0nm0n, who is to say that robocop and unicorns don't belong together. they are both in the category of awesomest things ever.

I liked the part where Robocop was sitting on a unicorn. I LOL'd.

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Cyborg law enforcement officers astride mythical equine creatures. I watched a middle-aged man grip his fundament with both hands and stretch it wide as the Tannhauser Gate. All these...memes...will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time...to go outside.

Where's that MS Paint calibre image of Robocop riding on ED209 in a meadow when you need it?
posted by furtive at 8:36 PM on October 27, 2008


I was more worried about the now censored photos of of ED209 riding the unicorn becoming widespread. It really was a tragedy the way that photo shoot played out.
