I'm a fanciful creature born of the imaginings of children...What's your excuse?

"I - topia? Dude... Really?"
Last one--a "tribute" to Jon Stewart & his "readin'" schlock on Herman Cain:
"Jeeves! The boss don't be drinkin' no Kool-Aid! He be snortin' it straight out the packet!"
That's exactly what I was going for. It's also an allusion to the "Imagination"/"Gloop" scene in Willie Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. The unicorn is essentially observing, "If this isn't chocolate..." Obviously, "knee-deep" was used to imply an additional element that wasn't illustrated.
Good one. There are so many potential cross-references with fantasy themes in stories, books, songs, & movies, I couldn't hit them all with one comment (well, maybe I could... but we all know how that would turn out). After I finally quit laughing, I had to pick an angle (or three) & run with it (or them).

"You say that the Kool-aid is a 'special recipe' from a Reverend Jim Jones? Heard that name before. Didn't he run a collective in someplace - Guyana?"

"And if Stevie Chu can float me a loan of $100 Billion, I guarantee that my 'Carbon-free Unicorn Fart Factory" will produce 100 gazillion megawatts of power each year. There will also be a lot of employment opportunities in feeding and 'cleaning up' after the energy producers."
