This is twice as funny because we’re supposed to be obsessing over the Tree of Harmony and The Mystery Box.
But no… we took a cheap joke Discord made and blew it out of proportion faster than OJ Simpson’s white bronco… We will get bored of it, but in the mean time, it’s hilarious.
Oh god damnit… I was about to use this as a reaction pic, and now it’s ruined forever.
All of my HNNNNNNNNNG
Honour man’s passing by turning him into a meme.
At last! The original in original context!
It’s been doing the rounds on Tumblr.
True story, but this image is taking the biscuit. The fanworks humanisation (for the most part) is actually plausible.
I could write an essay on everything I don’t like about what we know on EQG, but I’ll keep this brief-
Most fans know they don’t like this, but they can’t put their finger on what it is they don’t like, so they jump on any criticism that comes up, hence the remarks in the first paragraph of this pic.
The core issue I see here is that people don’t mind a traveller (normal person) in an extraordinary environment (eg, Harry Potter in Hogwarts), but when you take the extraordinary (Mane Six) and put them in the ordinary environment (our world) it suddenly becomes a cringing 4th wall break- and I don’t mean Pinkie’s occasional wink at the audience, I mean a 20 minute episode of facepalming as the Mane Six prattle on about how weird our world is.
That is why EQG is a bad idea. The only thing that can possibly make it worse is if they say ‘Oh there’s a TV show here featuring us! How strange!’.
I’ll probably watch the first episode out of curiosity, and I’ll give it a fair trial, but I won’t lie, I want it to be bad so I can downvote it into oblivion.
MLP’s stylised designs are hidden by the fact that there are no proper humanoids to compare. This image shows up how unrealistic and out of proportion it is, especially the skin tones.
Basically, it’s easy to escape to equestria and accept all it’s stylings and fantasy plot devices. As soon as you try to bring in realism or parallels with Earth, it shows up the cracks, and I for one do not like that.
I agree, it is an early teaser, but it’s all we have to go on at the moment, so in it’s current state, I dislike it!
I wouldn’t be too hard on Megan. I’d imagine she doesn’t really think this, but it’s not like she can say ’I’m just doing this because Hasbro told me to’
I used to wonder what friendship could be… and then I took a compound fracture to the knee.
It’s so bright and milky white
Shining down upon the ground
It’s so bright
Upon the ground.
Eyyyyy jupiter! I made a song! You ain’t got one!
Now if someone can also fix the ridiculous footwear, they’ll be slightly less awful.

This is what she gets for making that stupid illuminati sign :)
Even if she did say this, it may be out of context.
Failing that, remember fellow bronies, just because she’s Lauren Faust, doesn’t make her infallible. we’re allowed to disagree with her on some ideas, otherwise we’d be a religion. Which is a bad thing.
Well played, Fluttershy, well played.
…and then Japan discovered ponies…
I think a note should be added that a lot of cases of this are shameless fan service, which IMHO, is something that should not be encouraged… Pandering much?
+1 confirm, seen RP accounts on just about every social website there is.
This has been going on for a long time though, like, early naughties.
Loads of people who post as their pets on facebook.
Reason why Morpheus Cat works: It’s like morpheus, but for cats.
Reason why this does not work: With a LOT of imagination it’s like SLJ, but you’re just quoting Pulp Fiction. It’s not a joke, and it has nothing to do with cats.
QED. k thx die.
Only a sith deals in absolutes.
These are all over facebook… Granted the article is a little bit specific as to a particular example, but at one point not a day went by that I didn’t see a “X% won’t copy and paste this” story on my FB feed…
+1 fix the article
And also it’s blatantly a troll-name, unlike ‘unobtanium’, which they were dead serious about.
My flutters are jimmied!
