Happy Valentine's Day! Let's celebrate with excerpts from "My Little Pony & Friends" #37, author unknown.

Mind-altering substances ahead. Be prepared!

In the 80s, there were various sets of ponies. The Twinkle-Eye ponies, the Sweetberry ponies, and so on. The Romance ponies are all about spreading love and romance. To the extent that they will cheerfully forge love letters for you.

As our story begins, two of the Romance ponies, Love Letter and Love Token, are trying to convince Quarterback to come to the "Sweetheart Parade". No doubt they're feeling a little desperate as there are only about a dozen male ponies, and several hundred female ponies. And Tug and Tracks have apparently taken themselves off the market by pairing up. Wigwam, as we have seen, is taking a doll. Help us, Quarterback Kenobi! You're our only hope!

But Quarterback does not give a flying feather about sweethearts! He just wants to play football. He's peeved by all this romance malarkey, but he accepts Love Token's offer of a chocolate . . .

. . . aaaaand it was drugged.

So of course Quarterback will fall in love with the next pony he--


Yes, Quarterback. Stand there staring at her and counting how many times she jumps up and down. That's not creepy at all.

Nimblefingers. NIMBLEFINGERS.

The Romance ponies return, and they aren't even sorry. Then everyone goes off to the parade. Another cracktastic happy* ending!

* at least until the drug wears off.

Bonus: the Adventure boy ponies!

Yep, Tug is clearly making eyes at Tracks.

It's not just me that the boy ponies look exactly like the girl ponies, right? They just stuck random generic guy related things and called it a day.

Which is why, "Hey, check him out, he's hung like a "My Little Pony" is NOT a nice thing to say.

The Big Brothers have feathering around their hooves, the girls don't.

They do have the same girlish faces, though.

They took the Harry Potter route by drugging his food with mind controlling substances instead.

Was I the only one who thought the implications of that were... more than a little but skeevy? Especially considering what happened with Voldemort's backstory?

I don't know, I think it would be more progressive if they were actually bothered that the dating is only happening because one was slipped a mickey.

Nimblefingers is an... interesting name. But so is First Base. Oh, the puns that poor guy will have to have endured...

Not a love triangle! A poly triad!

Suuurrrre. I don't see her suitors sending each other valentines, though.

"Tug" is really not much better.

The ponies really haven't learned any lessons about this in the intervening years. The latest update of the Gameloft Android/iOS MLP game introduces a red and white unicorn named Lovestruck, who assigns you a series of quests apparently designed to help her housemate "Crescent Pony" have an awesome date. And then one of those quests is buying some love potions for him.

Well, at least the cartoon had the episode where the kids learned that a love potion was actually a love poison, and it was morally wrong to drug their big brother+teacher with it.

For some reason, this just terrifies me. I'm not sure why but I just find the look of them really creepy. Is that normal?

They give the lozenges for free, then a few months later.. the life-cleaner, for a little more.

Oh man... This belatedly makes my Valentine's Day :P I totally had (and presumably still have, somewhere) "Tex." Someone gave him to me as a birthday present and man, did I hate him. I think I resented that he was so explicitly a boy or something. Because, you know, boys were icky and I didn't want them around, even in semi-androgynous MLP form. I remember I used to sort of ostracize him from the other ponies--it was really mean. Poor Tex...

But of course I may have felt differently if I'd had Barnacle instead ;)
