Definition of a Unicorn: Fabled horned horse with lots of magical powers. Adored by millions of crazy people who play Dungeons and Dragons for years on end, collect wizard figurines, wear healing crystals and love shirts with wolves howling at the moon (aka 'Wolf People').
Definition of a Narwhal: Horned whale that is real, alive and kicking (I mean swimming.) Hmmm interesting...
A little 'myth' about the two of them:
Some believe that a narwhal is actually a unicorn in disguise.
Basically, long, long ago, unicorns were hiding from their rival dragon and came to the sea with no where to hide. Thinking quickly, they used a little bit of their magic and turned themselves into horned whales and hid in the sea. Some unicorns have never changed themselves back into unicorns to this day. Hence, narwhals.
Hmmmm yeah, at first it sounded like a load of shit to me too.
But then it got me thinking...
If this isn't true, then WHY do narwhals have their own Magic card?!?!?!?!
re's not a lot of unicorn sightings after the early 1200's, are there?
Perhaps this is because they all turned into narwhals!?!?
Now lets compare that to the sightings of narwhals:
And the list goes on!
Another point to be made:
Unicorns' known enemies are dragons and lions. Ok, well hey, did you know that narwhals just happen to share the sea with none other than sea lions and sea dragons?!?!? Coincidence? I'm beginning to think not!
See?!? The similarities between unicorns and narwhals are uncanny!
I rest my case.
You be the one to decide...
While you're pondering, listen to the wonderful Narwhal Song!
