“My unicorn ate my homework”

"My unicorn ate my homework”—a joke on the lame excuse of “the dog ate my homework”—is a saying that has been printed on many images. “The Rainbow Unicorn ate my homework” was posted on Twitter by Liz Perlman on October 28, 2009.

“My unicorn ate my homework” was posted on Twitter by Jessica Nathania on January 10, 2011. The saying (probably from an image) was popularized in January 2011.

My daughter wants a unicorn pencil case for her birthday (to give her credit, it does say, “A unicorn ate my homework”, so at least it’s faintly amusing — I’m searching for a silver lining here), her friends have unicorns on their backpacks and unicorn posters on their walls.
