That Explains All The Bronies

(It’s Thanksgiving, and I’m seeing my youngest cousins for the first time since they were babies. To break the ice, we’re talking about the only topic I have in common with 4 and 7 year olds, ‘My Little Pony’.)

Me: “Okay, so since you’re wild and crazy, and your favorite pony is Fluttershy, your pony name will be… umm… Nuttershy!”

(They laugh uproariously at this.)

Older cousin: “My favorite pony is Rainbow Dash! Can my pony name be Sonic Rainboom?”

Me: “Okay! Nice! Now only I need a pony name, hmmm…”

Younger cousin: “Your favorite pony is Pinkie Pie, and you have like a million cats, so your name will be Pussy Pie!”

Me: “Uh…”

Cousins: “Come on, Pussy Pie! Let’s go write a letter to Princess Celestia and let her know we’ve all made new friends today!”
