Pony MADness · 1:50am

In the very front of Al Jaffee's ridiculous MAD Fold-In this month (#529, dated 10/14), there's a pony.  Looks like a G1 pony, though the logo doesn't match, and the cutie mark is five dollar signs arranged in sort of a cross.

(For the record, Jaffee was older when G1 debuted than I am now -- though not much older.)

I am the very model of a modern minor generalist

I've been writing online for half my life, taking time out for meals of course, and in all that time, it has never occurred to me that someone might actually want to read something I'd written.

My range of interests may be fairly characterized as a thousand miles wide and about three-eighths of an inch deep.  And if you ever thought it was tricky explaining your devotion to pony to family members -- well, imagine what it's like when all those family members are younger than you are.

It somewhat amazed me; this was my first story over 1000 words since, well, ever.  Glad you liked it.

Your welcome man I love anything with Twilight in it but the The Sparkle Chronicles was absolutely amazing.
