2 years ago I was a mild-moderate brony hater, and I actually thought this kind of shit was cool.
In less than 2 weeks, I’m going to my first pony con. I’m looking forward to it.

For my favorite article, I can’t choose between “Why Going Outside is Just Minecraft for Plebs” or “10 Tips for Googling Porn (and 10 Reasons Why Women are Biologically Inferior)” It’s too hard of a choice, even for a discerning, godless man of science like myself!
It just dawned upon me how many different layers it takes to understand this picture.
Honestly PDP himself doesn’t seem like that bad of a guy, but I think his problem is more about his some of his fanbase being more belligerent than he is. If you go to the comments of literally any other LPer on Youtube, you’ll see PewDiePie fans saying that whoever it is is just a “bad ripoff of PewDiePie.” Then after seeing a rabid fan get angry at another LPer and then finding out that the guy screams a lot and gets money for it from his “BRO ARMY” (like the one who just insulted whatever other LPer you were watching,) yeah I can understand the hate he gets.
Plus it’s kind of disheartening that while PewDiePie gets the most subs on Youtube and is getting money by the second, Cr1TiKaL also puts up a video about how he’s in a tight financial spot and says he doesn’t want any support from his fans:
Well that could already have been proven by like every comments section on all of Youtube, but this reinforces it.

I was in the mall a few days ago and I remember walking past this one kid. It was like one second, and I didn’t didn’t really pay that much attention. He was kind of short, blonde and had glasses. I only remembered him because he was wearing a Pinkie Pie shirt and a baseball cap with Derpy Hooves on it. It was only just a second and I didn’t remember, but this kid looks a lot alike. Now I see this, and I’m not sure if this might just be the same kid. Honest to God I’m not shitting you.
That would be horrible. Imagine all of the [CLASSIFIED] that would happen as a result, and I have no idea what would happen if they got [DATA EXPUNGED] angry about it.
Time to indulge my undying love for over-analyzing the state of funny pictures on the internet.
Yes, it’s pretty obvious and unanimously agreed that Grumpy Cat has been stretched a bit or more too far over the lines of being funny, getting old, not knowing when to die, and getting whored out with merchandise. Heck, Grumpy Cat’s getting more grinded for money than Nyan Cat was back in its heyday. Yes, it’s bad that GC is being abused by companies trying to cash out on something they didn’t even have a hand in making, but it’s been done before, and this certainly isn’t the last time it’ll happen. However, think about it this way, they’re only taking this one meme. Apart from sometimes trying cheap advice animals as a whole, Grumpy Cat is one of the only things they want. Sure they’re taking that away from us, but one advice animal (that I honestly thought was only just okay to begin with) is a small price to pay to make sure we don’t lose something bigger and better instead. Think about it, at least things like Homestuck aren’t getting mainstream and sold out with merchandise (like Andrew Hussie would even let that go down without a fight, though.)
I guess what I’m saying is that this isn’t a good thing that it’s getting whored out, but at least it’s keeping the corporations occupied so that they don’t go after our better stuff.
This is like Sweet Bro and Hella Jeff except serious.
Pranks aren’t really an internet-exclusive passtime, but there are lots of Youtube prank videos and this could be a really good parent article for some other entries. Work on it and confirm.
Reddit ran out of animals.
4, 8, and 21
Also notice how the next gen consoles/games are going to drive these types of gamers even further?

This is just terrible; Lauren Faust and Ashleigh Ball would agree.
I know it’s set to be some time in 2013 but when was the Steam Box releasing again?
