It all started with a question asked for laughs on Formspring.
After being spammed by anons telling me to watch that notorious show, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, I attempted to find out the identity of said anons by posting a question asking whether I should watch the show. I knew that no matter what the answers were I would not watch it, but I’ve just received notification of MkMiku’s post on the series, blaming the whole thing on me. That made me feel bad….and slightly obliged to watch the show too. So one torrent from thepiratebay.org later, here we are.
At first I was convinced that it was an elaborate troll by members of the internet. But the more people you associate with, the more you realize that…..people actually watch this show of their own volition. I was confused: how could this show possibly be so well-liked, or so it seems?? I had to find out for myself.
So, being a fan of the scientific method, I decided that I would simply have to complete the show. Hence, Project Pony was born. What’s Project Pony then? It’s simply a chronicle of my attempt to ingest and force the show down my throat. Every 1 or 2 days I shall attempt to watch at least one episode of this little girl’s show until I finish it, or drop it out of exasperation. At the very end I shall see for myself whether my suspicions were right or not. So until then, wish me luck.
