    Saw a segment on the news yesterday about two miniature ponies which had been trained as therapy animals. Their names were Winston and Applejack. :)

    I was visiting Alton Towers today, and they have quite a few arcade grabber machines about the place. This one caught my eye obviously. But I was particularly drawn in by the artwork on the back. Look at little filly Luna and Tia chilling there! D'aww. Plus there's filly Trixie, Lyra, Zecora etc. Not sure I've ever seen those on official merch (except maybe the CCG)?

    That would be stolen fan art...

    I'm sure I saw the artwork on the Only Factory plushies, but that's obviously unofficial merch. At Chessington they actually used a ponymaker character :p [​IMG]

    Hmm, I had a hunch that might be the case.

    Reminds me, I came across some knockoff ponies lately that had fanart on the packaging - a little chibi Pinkie Pie and a badly photoshopped different-coloured version. Was particularly noticeable as it looked nothing like official art, so not even "honest" confusion on the part of the fakers.

    Saw a documentary on BBC 4 about Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris and Linda Ronstadt. Was somewhat disappointed that this song wasn’t about a certain earth pony;

    It's intriguing because Ashleigh Ball based her singing voice for Applejack on Dolly Parton's :p

    I had a lot of pony invasions whilst visiting my nephew on Tuesday.

    First off we had Mr. Tumble on for him, which featured a rather disturbing looking horse costume. I think the episode also featured some actual ponies.

    We then passed a pub called the Galloping Horse whilst driving out later. Whilst in town I noticed a little girl having a piggyback on her dad whilst wearing some MLP trousers. She has good taste! I also spotted some big MLP "Friendship squad" bags for life for sale in Poundworld, but they all went before I could think to buy one. Thankfully I managed to get one whilst in town today.

    "Sporting daring do" was referred to in World Cup commentary.

    Whilst watching Impact Wrestling this week I noticed one of their newest female wrestlers had three diamonds on her top. The way they were arranged reminded me of Rarity's cutie mark.

    I also saw a MLP cup at my local gaming club this week by their counter.

    Watching another documentary, this time about the Royal Navy’s new aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth. One of the cooks had MLP bedclothes on his bunk. Practical joke or Naval brony? I’m going for the latter!

    Watching Dragonball Z Abridged Cell mentions the word filicide and as the heroes wonder what this means Krillin says "I think it means when you murder a pony."

    Also in QI last night there was a mention of the Sparkle Muffin spider, which sounds like it should be the name of a pony. A descendant of Twilight and Derpy perhaps?

    Saw a girl in town today with a jacket covered in the Mane 6. She has good tastes.
