Bronies

Today, I’d like to take a brief foray into the most recent manifestation of My Little Pony.

In the show, the ponies have some scintillating dialogue. Instead of saying “Can somebody help me?” the ponies say “Can somepony help me?”

Which is pretty amazing if you consider the challenge this presents to anthropocentric assumptions.

That’s deep, brony.

    Except that “somebody” *could* include ponies, as ponies generally have bodies. If the word excludes anyone, it’s the spiritual and virtual (ghosts, invisible friends, and fake Facebook personalities have been trying to make this point for *years*).
