Is it bad that I immediately thought of that scene from Doctor Who the moment I saw this?
"Bonbon! That's a relief, thought I'd burst out of the wrong cake. Again. That reminds me, there's a mare standing outside in socks. Can someone let her in and give her a jumper? Derpy. Lovely girl. (whispers) Funny eyes."
Funny story. I wasn't even into ponies real deep a couple of weeks ago, till a friend showed me a silly thread on 'Ponychan'. While browsing through it, I ran into a pic of a sad greenpony and I went 'Aww. Who's that pony?' Searching around, I stumbled upon the MLP FIM wiki, and found her name, which in turn, led me to look for art, which in turn, led me to find comics and stuffs, which in turn, led me to the community at large...
I think I can say, I got into the Ponydom, thanks to Lyra.
