@ Khaptain Re: our national animal, the unicorn
as a Scotsman this is the first I have heard of us having a "unicorn" as our national beastie
Look on your passport.
Technically it's Scotland's heraldic animal, not the "national" animal, but since we don't really have one of the latter (if you discount the odd wild haggis sighting in cartoons) I think folk have settled on the unicorn. I think it's a brilliant idea.
Also Blade Runner.
