Grist reader Scott Hess sent in this photo in response to today’s post about Big Pork threatening legal action over the marketing copy for Canned Unicorn Meat. It immediately made me think of a concept my friends at Boing Boing long ago pioneered: a “unicorn chaser” — a mind-cleansing antidote to stories of a gross, disturbing, or depressing nature.

As heaven knows we have enough of the third group around here, I thus post Scott’s glorious portrait of one of the mythical beasts, taken at sunset in Sonoma County, Calif., as balm for all that may ail you.
