OMG there are like 1000 different hairstyles! Nonetheless, while I am proud of my Pony, this has failed to turn me into a Brony. [General Zoi's Pony Creator via Metafilter. Previously]
UPDATE: My father sends me a poem that he alleges I wrote about My Little Pony as a 6 or 7 year-old.
I love my little pony
I take good care of him
I dip its hair in treacle
And throw it in the bin
When the bin-man comes
He throws him on the floor
"Can't take you to the landfill
We already have a score"
So my little pony
Goes to the garden shed
And when the cat is out
Occupies its bed
And when the cat comes home
He says: "Who let you in?
The only place for a pony
Is in the garden bin"
