“Weird Al” and Ponies

Twitter / Al Yankovic: “The Weird Al / My Little Pony mashup that the world has been waiting for: …”

PMV – Pony Polka
“Again one of the songs IN this song was supposed to be a clip in RaNd0Mn3S5 #3, but yet again the song fitted so well that I had to use the full song. Hope you…”

I was in denial when I first saw this “Weird Al” Yankovic / My Little Pony music video, but I have since come to love My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.

 Twilight and Nerdy
“A little mashup I did. I thought of this as I was being cut with a cheese grater.”

While at the Roving Imp last night, I was hearing the original song by Coolio, and realizing that I preferred the song by “Weird Al”:

MLP PMV – Amish Paradise
“First Applejack PMV, also my first Weird Al PMV. Yes there’s no Amish Filly Pinkie… Why? 42, That’s Why! original song: Amish Paradise …”

“Ponies and Weird Al really do go together.”

On the sliding nerd scale, I might have just moved from dork to dweeb.

that‘s my starting issue 008

Only through Vince Ruth, Executive Producer of Attack of the Show, was I aware that Epictober continued:

Twitter / Angela Jung: “‘Ten years ago we had Steve Jobs, Bob Hope and Johnny Cash. Now we have no jobs, no hope and no cash.’” … that‘s my starting issue.

Humor vampirism 004

My need to be technically correct, the best kind of correct, sometimes sucks away my own humor:

The umlaut shows correctly in your comment, David. Like in the following, an umlaut may also be noted by adding an E after the A, O, or U:

„Wenn ich ein kleines Pferd waere …‟

Part of an assignment in my German class, one continuation of the previous phrase reads:

„Wenn ich ein kleines Pferd waere, wuerde ich eine kleine Pferdestaerke machen.‟

Horsepower from a horse shows that both my German phrase and the following translation are technically accurate:

“If I was a small horse, I would make one small horsepower.”

For further discussion, I reference Wikipedia:

“This unit (German: ,Pferdestärke‛ = horse strength) is no longer a statutory unit, but is still commonly used in Europe, South America, Japan and India especially by the automotive and motorcycle industry.”

The preceding was a response that I left on my blog, so any humor vampirism is more safe this time than in my last attempt at such.

Until I replied to David, I was going to share more stale zaniness, but let us become political to suck away more humor.

As a matter of fact, I do not even epitomize anything by which I choose to define myself very well. I am not even that good of a republican; I was at  the Roving Imp Training Center when the following aired:

I am not sure if we have quite found one with what
the New Kids on the Block would call, “The Right Stuff.”

I am only going to resume my sketching to illustrate the following unreal condition:

Pony is the German word for pony, but I thought  that I would instead use the phrase, “a small horse,” yet Equestria Daily gives me some hope: How we became Bronies.

Planned Parenthood Marks 95 Years as Biggest Abortion Biz | LifeNews.com
“Planned Parenthood is marking its 95th anniversary as an organization this week, but, despite the shiny gloss its president Cecile Richards uses to try to paint a pretty picture on its work, it’s now best known as the biggest abortion business.”

Often I question my influence and wish that I had taken debate in high school, but the  way to really change hearts is one person at a time:

Hippies are hobos who aspire to be hooligans

Among of my friends, I hold an unpopular political view, so I tend to not discuss politics:

  1. Politics is not considered polite conversation.
  2. I do not know enough about the issues to discuss them calmly or avoid ad hominem.
  3. I am on the opposite side of the debate on most issues.
  4. I do not like being wrong or being made a fool.
  5. I would rather keep friends and be respectful.

This is partially why I have a blog, so that I may freely express my opinions. My Chevy Cavalier has the many bumpers stickers, which were cause enough someone to leave behind a note. The following is one of those stickers:
