Apparently the new POP MLP toy line from Hasbro is anatomically correct.

They even come with tailplugs.  I think I've discovered a new fetish.

I figured out why we never seen Applejack's parents in the show.  They've actually been there the whole time.

You see, Granny Smith is really Big Macintosh's mother.  The two of them had a little redneck fun one night, and Applejack was born.

Since Applejack is Big Mac's daughter and Big Mac is Granny Smith's son, that would make Granny Smith Applejack's grandmother.  And because they share the same mother, Big Mac and Applejack are also brother and sister.

It's probably best that you don't ask about Apple Bloom's relationship.

Doesn't seem to be bobbing along.

That's a wheel from a car, embedded in a tree.

The donkey likes to go walkies with me.

My Little Orgy

The Cutey Mark Crusaders, plus Cheerilee.

The whole herd.  Unfortunately this series of toys did not come with Tank, Opalescence or Gummy, but I do have Angel, Owloysius and Winona.

Took my roommate to lunch at McDonalds today and found they have MLP toys in the Happy Meals.  But you don't have to buy a Happy Meal, you can apparently get one of the toys free if you order any meal, or you can just pay $2 each.  They have 8 toys total, the Mane 6, Miss Cheerilee, and Lily Blossom (who?).

The person working behind the counter was a bit dense at first and gave me just one pony and a Transformers Starscream toy.  I finally managed to get through to her that I only wanted the ponies and she went out of her way to find one of each for me.  I got two free and had to pay for the other 5 of them; I didn't bother getting the Lily Blossom toy.

The Mane 6 from McDonalds.

Not their best side.  Rarity looks particularly goofy from the back.

The nodules on their heads are to attach the combs, which double as carabiners.  Twilight Sparkle seems to have a balance problem; I don't think anyone actually bothered to test their design before making them.

Friends enjoy hanging around together.

Yes!  Now I have the Mane Six, Spike, Princess Pepto Celestia and Princess Luna, Cheerilee and the Cutey Mark Crusaders.  Now I just need Zecora, DJ Pon-3, The Great and Powerful Trixie, Derpy Hooves and Nightmare Moon, if these ever actually come out.

"Pony School Pals" kinda sounds like the name of a porno.

My Little Phony

I saw this at a "farm & home" supply store in Nebraska City.  This is supposed to represent a family?  When both adults are clearly mares?  Nice to see the Chinese are promoting same-sex marriage and alternative families.

I was particularly amused by the fact that the pink pony, who totally isn't Pinkie Pie, has blue and yellow balloons on her rump.  Not at all like Pinkie Pie, no....

Been busy the past two months so I fell really far behind on uploading photos.

You probably shouldn't be reading your e-mail on the computer that runs your digital ad boards.

The aftermath of Red Lobster's Endless Shrimp.  I broke my record this year, 10 plates of shrimp.  I definitely got my money's worth this time.

MLP activity book.  I almost bought it.

Balls are touching

I'm gonna start working on that plan to end all life on earth, OK?

Use the Brawny, Luke!

Next door to the district support center was a rail car repair facility.  One of the cars they had in their yard was from the long defunct Ashley, Drew & Northern Railway.  This boxcar has clearly seen better days.

The facility also had the cutest little locomotive.  It's an EMC SW1 switcher, built in 1939 for the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy.  I couldn't get a good photo of it because it was always behind a row of boxcars, but here's what it looks like.

When I see "SDSU", I think San Diego State University, not South Dakota.

Someone had an inflatable bear named Snowflake.

Snowflake taking a break.

I finally found a use for a Mac Mini.

Pony wears the saddle!

Except pony doesn't come with a saddle, pony comes with a cart.  You can't even attach a saddle because of the wings.

I resisted watching My Little Pony for so long, but I finally decided to watch an episode of it just to see what all the fuss was.  The episode I saw wasn't a very good one for a first time viewer, being the very last episode of the season.  But I gave it another chance and managed to catch the pilot the next day.  I was hooked.

So I figured I'd get an MLP toy for my desk at work.  I picked up a Rainbow Dash figure at Walmart.  Then I bought a Pinkie Pie. Then Applejack.  Next thing I knew, I had the whole herd.  I don't have Spike, however.  It appears you can only buy him as part of a set, and the prices being asked for on eBay just for Spike are almost as much as one of those sets.

Why are ALL the Princess Celestia toys Pepto-Bismol pink?  And why do half the characters come with weird pets?  Pinkie Pie came with a mouse, not her pet alligator Gummy, and Rarity came with a blue chicken thing, not her cat Opalescence.  I don't think Rainbow Dash has ever been shown with a pet, much less a squirrel.

John deLancie as Q Discord?  Pure. Genius.  From his Twitter posting:  "Roddenberry warned me that I had no idea what I was getting into with Star Trek. Someone should have warned me about My Little Pony! Egads!"

I quickly got my SO hooked on the show, now he's thinking about getting the toys (except he says they look like they are balding with really bad comb-overs).  Our other roommate just chuckled when I mentioned how good the cartoon is, so I set his DVR to record the show.  I caught him watching it last night.  Yes, come over to the brony side.  We have cupcakes!

Simply unique, indeed.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.  At least at Costco.

You're hired!  You're fired!

U-turn fail.  It might not be immediately obvious, but the front of the trailer is sitting on the roadway.

Pony pulls the wagon or it gets the hose again!

I had to explain to my roommate why it was absurd that a pegasus pony would be pulling a wagon.  I've succumbed to the brony side.
