+ Sigh.
Yes, it’s funny.  But it draws a tight parallel to reality.  This depicts all too clearly the unrealistic body expectations placed on us (primarily women) by the media industry.  The unicorn does not even exist, and neither do the perfect Photoshopped models on the covers of so many of our magazines.  And yet, we kill ourselves, literally and figuratively, to look more like the impossible and hate ourselves when we don’t.
Never give up on your dreams, yes.  It is fine, even, to strive for the impossible if it helps you reach higher.  But KNOW when what you are reaching for cannot be attained and realize that the journey is really what matters.
It’s sad that it’s too easy to read so much from a silly and harmless cartoon. :/
