A billion-dollar company is a unicorn. Therefore a ten-million-dollar company is a centicorn, a trillion-dollar company would be a kilocorn, etc.

       Yeah, bet there's a Sanity Clause, too ...

       Ah - "unicorn"! Now it makes sense. I thought they were talking about eunuch horns.

       I was thinking barleycorns (1/3 inches), which is the measurement used for measuring shoe sizes.

       I had a corn once..... to get rid of it required the same cure for that of a wart (which I've never had) - rub effected area with half of a potato; wrap up the potato half in brown paper and throw into back yard and allow to rot undisturbed; as potato rots, wart (or in my case corn) fades away.

       Well yes, [xen], that makes perfect sense.

       <wonders why [xen] hasn't entirely faded away by now, leaving only the corn/>

       There are a lot of french people wondering the same thing about M. Macron ...

       Actually, thinking about it, it should be possible to genetically modify a potato to produce both acetyl salicylic acid and an antiviral. This would be perfect for our warty, corny [xen].

       Not quite as perfect as breaking down the starch, converting it to cellulose, and then nitrating it ...

       chinese took all the horns for medicine. And corns too probably. And the potato.. massive hyperchondriacs

       That's just sick ...

       Simple. You hire some Ukranian girls to show up at its house, and instigate a sting operation.
