I suppose this needs to be addressed: I don't hate My Little Pony.

Really, I don't hate the show. The animation is alright, they have a couple of good voice actor choices, and considering the source material it's a pretty well crafted show. I may not watch the show myself (I find it kind of... stupid, but considering who it's written for I can't hold that against it), but I can give a nod to it, as a fan of animation.

"Bronies", however, can suck it.

That isn't to say I don't like ANY fans of the show, enjoying a kids cartoon is perfectly understandable and I'm okay with it. One of my very favorite shows of all time is Hey Arnold, for the love of Fry! The problem arises when you leave the normal realms of fandom and saunter your way into the Uncanny Valley pasture to feast of the crazy grass.

EVEN then, I'm willing to look past the full-crazy-full-stop fans if they were willing to accept that, in liking said show, they are more than a little odd. When I get asked for my favorite shows, and more than half are kids cartoons from the 90s, I know I'm a weird dude and am okay with that. Problem is, I've yet to meet a brony who doesn't go into a fit of rabid fandom at ANYONE who says they don't like the show!

People can dislike your favorite show without it being a "persecution of ponies, friendship, and happiness". Sometimes, we have different tastes.

Deal with it.

Sorry this is late folks, my dying pens made this strip take FOREVER!

Also, I had to start from scratch at one point from a pen exploding all over the page. It was a problem.

I'm off to start working on the next strip now, though, and hopefully I'll be able to scrounge up enough couch change for a new pen soon!

Catch you later.

Bronies mystify me, and I actually like the show. I don't think i'd be watching it if I wern't the father of two little girls though. I guess it's the extreme degree of pride they take in it...kind of like Trekkers in the 90's.....except that made sense.

Yeah, see, I understand extreme fanaticism. I'm a pretty HUGE fan of Star Trek, I know a lot about the universe, I've even dressed up as a Vulcan on more than one occasion.

Thing I never DID understand, however, is aggressive fanaticism. The Trek vs Wars arguments baffled me (as they still do), much as the brony need to rage at anyone who doesn't find the show much fun.
