I am not afraid to admit that I love My Little Pony. I have deep seeded childhood attachment to these adorable little characters, and I used to sit in the bathtub as a little girl playing with my My Little Pony toys until my fingers pruned up beyond belief.
I am afraid to admit however, that there is something in the world called a "brony" which is apparently a subculture of men who are fanatic about these adorable ponies. Can we say "douche chills"? Oh, for those of you who are unfamiliar with what "douche chill" means, I am referring to the certain chill you experience when you hear something so douchey it gives you goosebumps.
According to WiredEach day out-of-work computer programmer Luke Allen self-medicates by watching animated ponies have magical adventures.
The 32-year-old, who lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico, loves his daily fix of My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic, and he’s not alone. He’s part of a growing group of “bronies” (“bro ponies”) — men who are fans of a TV show largely intended for a much younger audience.
“First we can’t believe this show is so good, then we can’t believe we’ve become fans for life, then we can’t believe we’re walking down the pink aisle at Toys R Us or asking for the girl’s toy in our Happy Meal,” Allen said in an e-mail to Wired.com. “Then we can’t believe our friends haven’t seen it yet, then we can’t believe they’re becoming bronies too.”
I can't believe that this guy would call himself a "brony" and allow himself to be photographed and exposed.
I also can't believe the best part about reading this article, which was the fact that there are You Tube videos out there that mash up My Little Pony clips with movie trailers and produce such amazing creations such as "The Maretrix" or "Kill Spike: Volume 1" which you can view below.
