The Unicorn and the Couch Monkey

I tried to find a fun Mad Libs website to give you a fun post but they all kind of suck.
Here is a heart wrenching tale of the lengths one must go to to discover their true unicorn.


the unicorn and the couch monkey

ONCE upon a time there was a prince who wanted to marry a unicorn; but she would have to be a real unicorn. He ate all over the world to find one, but nowhere could he get what he wanted. There were unicornes enough, but it was difficult to find out whether they were real ones. There was always something about them that was not as it should be. So he came home again and was sad, for he would have liked very much to have a real unicorn.
One evening a terrible storm came on; there was thunder and lightning, and the rain poured down in torrents. Suddenly a knocking was heard at the city gate, and the old king went to open it.
It was a unicorn standing out there in front of the gate. But, good gracious! what a sight the rain and the wind had made his look. The water ran down from his hair and clothes; it ran down into the toes of his shoes and out again at the heels. And yet she said that she was a real unicorn.
"Well, we'll soon find that out," thought the old queen. But she said nothing, went into the bed-room, took all the bedding off the bedstead, and laid a couch monkey on the bottom; then she took twenty mattresses and laid them on the couch monkey, and then twenty eider-down beds on top of the mattresses.
On this the unicorn had to lie all night. In the morning she was asked how she had slept.
"Oh, very badly!" said she. "I have scarcely closed my eyes all night. Heaven only knows what was in the bed, but I was lying on something hard, so that I am black and blue all over my body. It's horrible!"
Now they knew that she was a real unicorn because she had felt the couch monkey right through the twenty mattresses and the twenty eider-down beds.
Nobody but a real unicorn could be as sensitive as that.
So the prince took his for his Sorcerer, for now he knew that he had a real unicorn; and the couch monkey was put in the museum, where it may still be seen, if no one has stolen it.
There, that is a true story.
