Oh, Virgil, Not You Too by DeckardCanine Oh, Virgil, Not You Too by DeckardCanine
I was a little concerned that readers' eyes would shoot directly to the final panel, but the punchline doesn't really depend on the image being a surprise; in fact, I had planned earlier to put the toy pony in panel 2. I had also figured on a different pony, until I had to decide the best way for Virgil to tell Umberto to shut up... and remembered this: [link]

Does Virgil speak in full honesty rather than rationalization, or has Umberto surmised correctly? We may never know, because I expect never to use this prop again. You can breathe a sigh of relief, non-fans.

I copied the toy from a Google Image, not my own (nonexistent) collection. My drawing deviates (heh) in minuscule ways, but hey, Hasbro hasn't been perfect in visual fidelity either. For example, on the show, she has three butt-butterflies instead of one.

*breathes that sigh of relief* (well, somebody had to do it...)

Haha, nice.

Honestly the brony line is one I'm hesitant to try and get humour from, I never know where those peeps stand or how touchy they are so I leave it - this works great because it's funny from both sides of said line.

Kudos man :D

At work, I find that many toys are not accurate to their cartoon counterparts. I don't know what the deal is- it's like they put 5 minutes into researching the cartoon to know what to put on the box, but they fail to actually get details right. I mean, some things are no big deal- like when the batman toys have no cape or something- but when batman is wearing a cape that has a red inside, or when the cobra swords from G.I. Joe have blue handles instead of black... it's just odd.

I was wondering why my Fluttershy collection came up one short.

Thank you. I may not get online that day, because I'll be traveling.
