Presented for your enjoyment. All content of course the property of The Hub and the creators of the show. In my previous post on My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic (and don’t worry, this blog is not going to degenerate into a weekly update on all things pony) I pointed out the show’s embrace of remix culture and its extended “brony” fanbase. Below are a couple of screengrabs from the most recent episode, taking place in a bowling alley. Ask yourself how many tween girls would notice this – and understand the reference:
Yes indeed – The Big Lebowski has invaded My Little Pony. A cult movie that sits in the top ten list of the most uses of the F-word has snuck into a kid’s cartoon. Young girls won’t get it. Bronies will love it. And much rejoicing and many celebratory White Russians will ensue.
It’s just like, my opinion, man, but I really dig this show.
My name is Graham, and I am a man of many opinions and talents. On any given day the opinions will exceed the talents by at least a 10:1 ratio. This is my chance to share these observations and thoughts with you. I promise never to be cruel for cruelty's sake and that all snark will be directed only towards richly deserving targets. Because a belly laugh is always more powerful than a hateful scream.
