An apparent North Korean claim to have uncovered a "unicorn's lair" that set off an internet storm was partly the result of mistranslation by Pyongyang's propaganda machine.

The story has more to do with North Korean claims of being the legitimate rulers of the Korean peninsula rather than real facts.

More propaganda from the pompous, pusillanimous pissant; a pretender if there ever was one. Pyongyang is allegedly full while the rest of the nation either starves or is consigned to labor camps where experiments are performed on them. Now pussy, about that empty downtown building that you say is full but in reality has never been used. Have you been smoking some Golden Triangle special?

You are welcome Tanya. Too much of anything can do funny things to us Phil--balance and moderation are far safer.
