    Is anyone else thinking “My Little Pony”?

    Terrible name! Promising premise, though. Why not Heavenly Pet?

    I’m thinking that unicorns may be an offshoot of an earlier version of horses, like eohippus. That could explain the smaller size and “dainty-ness” of this one. But maybe I’m thinking too hard. :-)

    Right now the unicorn is thinking either the Warners or Elmyra, neither good.

    Ain’t nuttin’ wrong with “Heavenly Nostrils” as a name if you’re an equine; the nostrils are a horse’s most expressive feature. But is our new friend to be filed under “Nostrils, Marigold Heavenly” or “Heavenly-Nostrils, Marigold?” Or is she, perhaps, a Roman unicorn, Marigold of the Nostrils branch of the Heavenly gens? In questi esseri, il nome ha tal virtù che rivela l’Essenza.

    I do wonder whether “Heavenly Nostrils” is a good choice of strip title. But let us hope that the syndicate has exercised due diligence on that point.

    Will she show her unicorn to her parents or keep it a secret?

    Well, I guess if it doesn’t work, you can change it at some point, your’s wouldn’t be the first comic to do so.

    Horses greet each other — and their people — by breathing into the other’s nose. It’s part of why they’ll position their head the way they do when in a friendly mood and greeting you; you can exhale in several short puffs, and they’ll sniff your breath like they would with another horse and return the greeting.

    So I admit I read the title — possibly wrongly — as being like ‘Heavenly Greeting’ or ‘Heavenly Handshake’ or something similar, but with an equine bent. ;)

    Another WISH joke:

    A government worker is sitting at his desk. He starts obsessing about a drawer that has been locked since he was hired fifteen years ago. Curiosity finally gets the better of him and he pries it open with a letter opener. As soon as the drawer opens there is a puff of white smoke and a man wearing a turban is standing next to his desk.“Thanks for releasing me,” he says, "I am a genie and was trapped by one of your predecessors in the office. As a reward I will grant you three wishes.At first the government worker thinks it is just an office prank by one of his co-workers so he says, "okay, I’ll start with my first wish. I wish for a diet Coke. The man holds out his hand and there is a flash of light in his hand, After the flash he is holding a diet Coke and hands it to the government worker.Now the man is catching on, “what if this is real?” he thinks, " I just waisted a wish."So he takes another try. “All right, I wish I were at a tropical island with lots of half dressed women to serve me.” The genie nods, slaps his hands together and there is another bright flash. The gov man looks around and he is on a beautiful island with palm trees and there is a slightly clad, beautiful woman bringing him another diet Coke.“Wow!” the gov man yells, “I guess you really are a genie!”“Of course I am!” the genie responds. “Now, about your third wish?”“Okay,” the man says with excitement, "I have to make this one good, I already waisted the first one. (pause) I got it!“I wish I never have to work again for the rest of my life!”At this the genie nods, slaps his hands together, and produces another flash.The government worker blinks, looks around, and finds himself back at his desk.

    I can’t help but think of that one line from the movie Despicable Me where the little girl is holding a unicorn toy from a carnival game and she says, “its so fluffy!”.

    Why do some have such a problem with the name? At the very least, it’s one that ought to provoke curiosity.

    Here is my contribution to the wish jokes. A man is sitting in a bar. Another man sits next to him and takes a tiny grand piano out of one pocket, and a tiny man in a tuxedo from the other. The tiny man sits at the tiny piano and being playing classical piano sonatas. The first man is flabbergasted. “That’s the most amazing thing I’ve seen all day! Where did you get something like that?” The second man says “Oh, there is a genie in the parking lot, giving away free wishes!” So the first man goes outside and sure enough, there is a Genie floating the the parking lot. “Would you like to make a wish?” The Genie asks. “Sure! I’d like a million bucks!” The man said. “Your wish is my command.” The Genie says, and whoosh! A million ducks fly down out of the sky! The man walks slowly back into the bar, ducks perched on his head and shoulders, and hundreds of ducks following him into the bar. The first man turns to the second man and says “You know, I do believe that genie is hard of hearing!” The second man says nothing at first. He puts the little man in the tuxedo back into one coat pocket, and the tiny grand piano in the other. He then turns back to the first man. “No kidding. You don’t really think I asked for a 12 inch pianist, do you?”
