KYM Pony General V: We Just Don't Know What Went Wrong

Is “Bend Over” a meme? Discuss.

No it is not a meme, it is merely an inside joke at the moment which was created from our boredom. If it continued to spread to other sites and other users could identify it then it might be considered a meme. Currently, it can be identified as a force meme because we are propagating amongst ourselves. I personally feel like it will not spread to other sites and it will ultimately wind up as the next Cheeto of KYM which we will joke about now and then, but it will not affect the fandom greatly.

^ What Tim basically said. Currently the whole Rarity bend over thing is just a fad or inside joke, not a meme. But then again, like I’ve said before elsewhere, having spread beyond a certain fandom is not a must for something to be a meme. It helps in showing spread, but isn’t needed. The argument of “forced” is also a popular one, but I’m calling it invalid. If a meme spreads with succes, it’s a meme, forced spread or not. But I’d like to see the end of the month first, by then the whole bend over thing with Rarity has most likely died out.

As for the current page, I changed it so it applied to bend over in General. But feel free to upload all these Rarity related image macros. If it spreads to really notable meme levels, I just return it to its original state and change the title. I’ll then add the usage of bend over as a catchphrase as a precursor in the origin section in that case. Giving both a mention that way, but keeping the focus on Rarity and MLP.

Can I propose a new topic you guys? Anyways, new topic. What do you think it was like in Discord’s reign of chaos? This is my headcannon for what happened in that time.

@BSoD
Yeah, that was my idea. Seeing how much it fit, I did it.
As for a meme, I would go along with Tim & Random. I wouldn’t suspect it to last for more than a week. It’s a fad, but not necessairly a meme.


Now, to improve my view of the character after the “bend over” craze, I would like to thank whoever made this:

I’m not sure if it’s the same artist, but I really do enjoy these World War II pics.

@Zarathh
Same headcanon

EDIT-@DeadParrot
Thanks a bunch! Wow, those pics of her’s are great!
Oh, and Rarity would probably be more like this:

@Popper
Here’s the source of that Rarity picture for you: SOURCE
You can go thank them directly now! =)
I’ve seen a lot of her stuff around and it’s all great!
(She has quite a lot of Rarity in there, too!)

I think we know how Rarity would react to this whole ‘meme’ thing…

@Bend over:

I would consider it a term that’s used somewhat often, even before the deal with Rarity, but I wouldn’t exactly call it a meme, yet. It’s a phrase, kind of like ‘prepare your anus’, that had some memetic value because a lot of image macros used it. At the moment though, I don’t see it as a full-fledged meme, and I would merge it with Prepare Your Anus (if we have an article for it) in a week or two if we don’t see significant spread.

@Zar:

Actually, I’m writing a fan-fic about my headcanon so damn bad-ass procrastination is keeping its distance.

Which is fucking amazing, because it’s muddled in the affairs of a dozen others I should have completed by now.

@Rarity’s response to all of this:

Yep, she totally doesn’t want us to bend over.

Well, it’s become a thing on Tumblr and it’s already dying.

They’re trying to force a tired joke to be a meme?
I guess you could say…

They’re beating a dead horse!
HAHAHAHAHAhahaha…ha…

Okay, fine!
It wasn’t great.
Just stop looking at me like that!

For anyone who wanted to download from the Ponibooru super-torrent but couldn’t (pretty much anyone without a Mac), someone over on Derpibooru has written a script that will do it for you!

Here’s the link: PONIBOORU DOWNLOADER
It will take a while to run, but it seems to be quite effective!
It even lets you filter out tags that you don’t want.

Stop quoting large images unless you’re quoting from the previous page, blah blah blah, what do I care, you’ll forget like you did the last several times I’ve said it.

THEY PUT DERPY ON AN ACTUAL PRODUCT!

Where have you been?
Derpy is (or technically ‘will soon be’) a real product, muffins and derp eyes included!

@Random

I heard that the official Derpy Toy was going to be a limited time only offer. It was made available for sale at a recent convention but was not to be released in stores.

I still thought it was a genius move on Hasbro’s part to rake in some extra cash without risking controversy

Don’t worry Blue Screen, we won’t mind if you quote such small posts.

As for the toy: According to the article about it, the toy will appear in the online shop for limited time and stock after both events. So we still have to wait until July.

And yes, very smart of Hasbro. Such a small nod, but one which can get them so much profit.

Fifths’ day:

7 am: Time to go home after staying with friend for a few days. Hung over. Applejacks and coca cola for breakfast.
8:30 am: Reach train station after hour long car trip. The train tracks are under repair, so have to take a 3 hour long drive in a sweaty bus to Chicago. Get seated next to chatty old woman.
10:30 am: Weigh pros and cons of killing chatty old woman. Narrowly decide not to.
11:30 am: Arrive at Chicago, 6 hour layover. Try to kill time in the city. Get challenged to chess game by crazy looking homeless man. Lose to crazy homeless man. Badly. He wins 25$ from me.
5:30 pm: train for home finally departs…without me on it. Get ticket turned over and wait for next one
6:30 pm: Begin hour long transit home. Think everything is going to be alright. Rest eyes.
8:30 pm: Wake up in the middle of fucking country, missed my stop by an hour. Get to end of route, buy a new train ticket home. Pretty sure the guys two seats up front are meth heads.
10:00 pm: Get off at my stop this time. My ride’s car is broken, so I have to spend the last sorry remnant of my Dash plushie fund on a taxi. Can’t even be arsed to care at this point.
10:30 pm: Finally get home. House is empty and pitch black. Have one thing to say…

Time for Pony.

@Explosive Lasers
Wow, that second one actually made my eyes tear up a bit. I rarely feel such emotions for an image.

I was digging around for any new news articals regarding the fandom and came empty handed. But I did find this video.

The song is ok, but it made me think about how female fans are treated and identified in the fandom. Is the term Pegasister necessary to identify a female fan of MLP FIM?

@Random

Don’t worry Blue Screen, we won’t mind if you quote such small posts.

For the record, its not the size that matters, but I do have strict conditions about when to quote

Post right above me = No need to quote or even address. I’m sure you guys can logically follow discussion from one post to the next (Although I still addressed you anyway in my last post)

Post few posts above = No need for quote but probably need to address

Post several posts above = Address and quote specific parts

Post on previous page = Full quote

Post on previous page but contains huge text/image = Address and Quote specific parts regardless of how far it is

You get the idea


I…I’m sorry if this has been posted before, but I’m kind of feeling down as of late.
I feel replaced by Chrysalis a bit.
Why don’t you draw me as much as her.
I can be loveable, I can be cute like her…
I guess none of you really did love me after all.
Everywhere I look its Chrysalis this, Chrysalis that.
She’s really nice to be around, but I’m starting to wonder what’s wrong with me that’s keeping people from drawing art of me or loving me.
I just want to be loved again….at least there’s one left…
Anyone got anything to cheer me up a bit?

The quoted post has been deleted.

I know Pyro. I meant to type Nightmare but my brain though “HEY, EVEN THOUGH THIS IS NIGHTMARE MOON IM GONNA MAKE THIS POOR KID TYPE CHRYSALIS JUST TO BE A JACKASS, HEEEE HEEEE.” Also, my brain speaks caps lock.

HEY.

HEY YOU.

GUESS WHO WILL BE JOINING ANDREW W.K. AT CANTERLOT GARDENS.

D.C. MOTHERFUCKIN’ DOUGLAS.

Sound familiar? No? Let me refresh your memory:

That’s right… Albert Wesker is a brony.
Hell Yes.

@Nightmare Moon
Hasbro doesn’t make Chrysalis toys. Just sayin’.
Also, you have a stellar moustache no changeling could ever hope to replicate.

SHEER BEAUTY!

If you’re still feeling down, I know what’ll cheer you up. A MAKEOVER!

EBIT:
@Seal Clubba
Dude, did you miss what Verbose just said?

Stop quoting large images unless you’re quoting from the previous page, blah blah blah, what do I care, you’ll forget like you did the last several times I’ve said it.

Please watch what you quote. Particularly when it is only one or two posts behind yours.

@Nightmare Moon
Aw, we still love you!
You’re so pretty!

And don’t be jealous of Chrysalis.
She’s just the new girl in town right now.
I’m sure the two of you can put aside your animosity and make up!

What?
No, Chrysalis!
‘Up!’
I said ‘make up!’

@Lantern
That’s awesome!
I hadn’t even heard about him being a brony at all before.
Where did that come from?
Whatever the reason, I hope he’ll be able to stick around longer than he usually does…

Let’s not forget something here:

Crysalis brainwashed the Captain of the Royal guard to both feed off of his emotions and weaken the shields around Canterlot in order to conquer the pony capital. All while sadistically reveling
in every moment of the ponies’ pain. That’s pretty evil.

Discord wanted to turn Equestria into a world somewhere between an Escher drawing and Lewis Carrol’s Wonderland as well as turning everyone into jerkasses for the lulz. That’s also fairly evil.

Nightmare Moon wanted to bring eternal night- an act that would effectively kill everypony in a way not dissimilar to the way the dinosaurs were killed off by a meteor blocking out the sun… twice… because she was jealous.

I’ll let you come to your own conclusions.

Edit:
(I still love all three of them)
