Don't ask; just read. This from our Dragon Rp on the Warriors Forum.
 
Fedie: Graythorn pointed at the crumpled mass of pink, "your unicorn died."
Other Roleplayer: Ukla saw Grockle fly in on his unicorn, that died, "Hey!" she called to him, "can we cook that up and eat it?"
Fedie: "I doubt it," graythorn said. "those things give me indigestion"
OP: Ukla blinked, "You've... eaten a unicorn before?"
Fedie: "No, why do you ask?" he responded. [....he's a little out of it]
OP: "...No reason," Ukla mumbled.
