Why do people come to this thread to troll rather than talk about ponies? No one made you come here people. police

Because it's a free world, and you don't own the board. You're the one posing meme cartoons that insult people who don't like the show. That is trolling. I didn't realize people who don't agree with you have no right to say anything.

And you wonder why you irritate people.

I don't mind if people don't like the show (like most of my friends), the post was a joke. GET A SENSE OF HUMOUR! And for the record, it wasn't insulting, how you could even take that as insulting is beyond me. If I was trolling I'd post it as a message to everyone, not post it with-in a thread for Bronies. Keep digging your hole deeper.

You are the one who called me out, I never called anyone out. I'd rather be weird and like a cartoon, than be you and act like jerk and try to hurt people's feelings (although you fail at it).

Usually it's ponies trolling in other threads, what an ironic reversal. Perhaps the universe is about to implode.



Since it is, in fact, a free world, perhaps we should explode pony bombs in random threads.

And nice comics, lol. I just got hooked on Dr Who also, so I'm joining as many cults as possible. I hope I can get into one more before the end of the year—any suggestions? Tongue

The Venture Brothers!!!

A friend of mine in college was all about that show. I'll peruse the YouTubes when I get a few free minutes.

But now, back to ponies.

Man...things I don't understand are so stupid. Really, guys, its like you purposely pick the dumbest things ever to make cultish fanbases for. Is this what passes for irony these days? It's like when I used to go to punk rock shows (the second stupidest thing to make cultish fanbases for, but I digress...) and see guys in their mid-late 20s in Hanson t-shirts. Oh, I get it, you're really mocking it, but...you still bought a Hanson t-shirt. And you're wearing it. And somewhere far away, while you enjoy being a unique individual in your tear-away tracksuit pants and medically-unnecessary glasses, your parents are aging in dog-years from all the wondering where they went wrong.

Shame is awesome sometimes. You should make t-shirts and form subcultures around that.

Jeremy:

I'm not technically a 'brony', but the show is legitimately good and has enough pop culture references to keep it entertaining for an older audience.

These memes are pretty awful, though.

There are people who are fans because it's sort of an ironic, hipster thing to do (cf all the merchandise sold by Hot Topic). It's true. But I'm not cool or rich enough to be a hipster, and I'm long out of high school, so I don't have any friends to impress.

It really is a solid show. It has good characters and good animation (classic Looney Tunes-style humor is seriously lacking in today's market). It's cute and innocent but still solid, makes me laugh, and is more appealing to me than most of what passes for entertainment these days.

I have a hard drive full of Animaniacs, Tiny Toon Adventures, Looney Tunes, Foster's Home, I Love Lucy, and The Munsters. I've never been accused of having good taste, but I know what I like. I'd watch MLP over, say, South Park or Family Guy any day of the week.

We aren't mocking it...it is a really good show.

I think there are more in the closet fans than we think. It just takes a lot of moxy to come out and admit you like a show like this (because it seems to be just for girls to ignorant folk). If you watch it, most people will appreciate the animation, character development, and story. I liken it alot to Looney Tunes for example. But if you don't, hey, atleast you gave it a shot. It really isn't just some girly show.

No one is shamed. Actually, the only places that make such a big deal about it is...well, the US. Because they have such ridiculous gender stereotypes. Of course, using those stereotypes, I cannot be mocked, I am a professional athlete (worshiped by American manly culture), so I guess it nullifies your judgmental view of MLP:FiM and just makes me a normal "dude".

Instead, I found this.

LOL. Those posters are fantastic.

I don't know if Orthodox are organized enough to pull that off, but I predict you will see ponies in Family Christian Stores by this time next year.

And it will be worse than the abomination of My Little Ponies Generation 3.5.

Depending on my weekend, I might respond to this. Cause I think you are not aware of exactly what is going on here which is indicative of a larger trend in Western, especially, American culture.

This ain't "irony" as such, especially not of the most annoying variety which you brilliantly illustrated in your post.

IMO, it's a bit darker and troubling.

But the last time I made a shot across the bow here about MLP: FiM, I was insulted by someone I thought I had a decent relationship with, falsely accused of numerous acts, and ultimately the poster left.

This is not surprising given the ideological space MLP and specifically "bronies" exist in.

But its a long week and weekend and I never feel well, so we will see.

Jeremy, you must not however see this as gen-x ueber-ironism. Nor hipsterism.

People wanted to know what would exist after hipsterism.

Here it is. It extends elsewhere of course as well.
