I don't get it. I don't get Bronies. I've watched 3 seasons of MLP: FiM, with my gf, and we loved most of the episodes (though the singing could really be toned down), but neither of us suddenly had the urge to declare ourselves as "Bronies", and spend god knows how much $ on merch and crap like that.

Wow I must have been super into my Dark Souls playthrough these past few weeks, because apparently I missed all of these articles.

My mom's always been kind of a cheapskate, and never really took our animals in to the vet… » 8/28/14 11:26am Thursday 11:26am
