A Darn Sock Pun

By SamuelEAllen
Darn (verb)- To repair a hole, as in a garment, by weaving thread or yarn across it... (Aren't homonyms fun?)

Here is my submission for the bonus theme for Week 5 of :iconmlp-atg-alumni:

The bonus theme for Week 5 was "Draw a Pony Socks." With so many pictures of ponies in socks popping up lately, I wondered what I as an artist could bring to the topic. The answer: bad puns! So, here is a comic featuring Derpy Hooves consulting Rarity about how to repair a hole in one of the socks she purchased from her, but misunderstandings ensue around the meaning of the word "darn." However, giver Derpy's condition, maybe it would be better if she left the darning to a professional.

Bad puns are the only good puns, if you catch my drift.

Possible origin of 'Darn' as a curse then.

Bad things happen? Darn it. Meaning? Get off your flank and fix it.

Oh man, I've been using darn as a curse word for a long while now. Oh god, I feel so stupid.
