Canned Unicorn Meat

Online retailer ThinkGeek announced an exciting new product - canned unicorn meat, which it described as the new white meat and an excellent source of sparkles. It's unlikely that many people believed ThinkGeek was really selling unicorn meat, but the concept proved popular enough that a few months later the company started selling the product for real. Customers who ordered it received a stuffed unicorn toy inside a can. Except for customers in Germany who complained that they weren't receiving their orders. Eventually the reason for the delay was traced back to the shipments being halted by German customs officials - who apparently believed that unicorns were real and had therefore decided that the product fell afoul of regulations banning the importation of meat from rare animals.
