  1. Bonus Drama!
    Epic Santa Pone vs. Pencils battle that ultimately ended in "meh, I'm tired".

  2. You linked to this thread: http://boards.4chan.org/mlp/thread/29161583 It should link to an archive after the thread 404s.

  3. >Tabitha as coolest staff member
    >the only person working on this whole trainwreck of a show with tangible talent
    >tfw fucking /mlp/ knows the deal better over the Tarafags at EqD

    1. 'Member when Tabitha ripped Silver Eagle a new ass hole on Twitter? Yeah, she best staff member.

  4. If I google "Santa Pone", I get hardly any hits, but if I search for Pencils I get millions of hits. Seventh award if obviously going to the wrong person.

  5. Funny how Horse News hasn't covered the drama going on at Equestria Daily the past few days. Then again we all know Capper sucks Seth's dick.

    1. The alleged drama must so unworthy that you couldn't even spend a few more extra words mentioning it. So you're right, it's nothing worth covering.

    2. They're also ignoring Purple Tranny's "I wasn't getting enough from the SeaBronies patreon so I made a second patreon to support my social justice blogging so I could pay Sea Bronies' bills" because they suck Seth's and the tranny's megadong.

    3. what drama are you referring to?

      I barely ever visit EQD

  6. H
    P U R P L E T R A N N Y !



  7. There should be a "dud of the year" as in something that was supposed to be spread like wildfire but ended up being meh. (example: Double Rainboom was supposed to be awesome but was meh, Trace-Mario was supposed to cause backlash like TracePonies but barely anybody talked about it.)

  8. Fucking idiots: Check out the full KP story here, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f1GqToMs6cU

  9. I found a lot of information here! This article is really good for all newbie here. Thank you for sharing with us!
