Would you like a unicorn for Christmas?

A unicorn is not just for Christmas. It’s for life.

HAVE YOU ALWAYS wished for a mythical creature to call your own?

Is there anything more perfect to you than the idea of riding a unicorn through a field of beautiful wildflowers?

Do you threaten to do this regularly?

If this sounds like you, your prayers have been answered by this kindly Craigslist unicorn seller, who has two unicorns to part with – a 3-year-old male named Pagasus (sic) and a 5-year-old female named Daisy:

The unicorns cost $930,000 each, but they must be bought as a pair, so that’s a little under $2m for the mythical creatures of your dreams. Not bad, really, for what you’re getting.

The breeders warn potential buyers that looking after unicorns is a serious task:

Unicorns are hand fed from birth, and require just as much attention if you do decide to welcome a unicorn into your home. We are the only fully licensed unicorn breeder in North America, and are NUBAA certified. Call now to be put on the waiting list, on which wait times start at 9 months out.

In case two fully-grown unicorns aren’t enough, you could also try hatching one of your own. Yes. Hatching.

We also offer unicorn eggs for purchase.

So unicorns come from eggs? You learn something new every day.
