Week 256 Wrap Up

Double, double, toil and trouble.
Fire burn and cauldron bubble.

This is the real stuff, you know. Right out of Drakespeare!

Eye of Needle, Tongue of Shoe, Hand of Clock that points at two,
Neck of Bottle, Tail of Coat, err... Whiskers from a Billy Goat!


*cough* *wheeze...* Ugh. I think those 'Billy Goat Whiskers' were actually Alley Cat Whiskers. I hate it when I get those mixed up. Perhaps I should ask Twilight to organize and label all this stuff for me. It would certainly reduce my alchemical lab repair expenditures.

At any rate, while I deal with this mess, you guys should check out what everypony else has been cooking up. They're results have been less... incendiary than mine.

Week 255 Wrap Up

Hey! What's that in the sky? Is it a bird? Is it a blimp? Wait, isn't that... uh oh! TAKE COVER!!


Ooh, that's gotta hurt! Ever since Rainbow Dash was moved off their Reserve List, the Wonderbolt shows have become a bit more... well, let's just say that it's a good thing Ponyville's construction teams are so experienced, due to repairing the damage from past monster and villain attacks.

But still, I doubt Rarity is going to be happy about the damage to her Boutique. Seriously, the errant pegasus crashed right through her front window and careened straight into her newly-released Summer Chic line! Well, I guess it's true: Rainbow Dash always crashes in style!

And on that note, I shall now direct you to this week's gallery, featuring several other ponies who may or may not have crashed in style.

Week 254 Wrap Up

Sometimes, a pony needs to work alone. They might be handling a small task that doesn't require more than one worker; too many cooks spoil the soup, as they say. Or perhaps they're the only one present who can handle the job. This could be the result of other workers being sick, or perhaps away on vacation. Or it could be that this one pony is the only wizard in all of Equestria that knows how to safely dissipate the Harmonic Dissonance Emanations left behind by Discord's bout of the Blue Flue.

But for many ponies, having an assistant makes the task at hand considerably easier. Farmers need stout ponies to aid with planting, and later harvesting, the crops. Captains need deckhands to raise the sails and watch for land. Generals need fast messengers to relay commands to the troops. Even that previously-mentioned Wizard will appreciate having an apprentice around who can tell the difference between an alembic and a retort, and thus will not fetch the first when the wizard asked for the second.

Thus, this week we celebrate the assistants, co-workers, apprentices, and followers, without whom completing many tasks would not be possible!

Week 253 Wrap Up

Hey, everypony! I've got some good news! I've been working on my comedy act! ...Wait, where's everypony going?

Okay, okay, fine. No more jokes. Jeez, tough crowd. Well, no jokes from me, at least. After all, comedy is the theme for this week. So get ready for a lot more jokes this evening! We've got a full slate of comedians ready to regale you with rib-ticklers of all sorts. And if they're bad ones, then just remember that I'm not the one on stage. So don't throw your tomatoes at me.

Oh, and just to reassure you all, we made sure that Discord never found out about this event, so there won't be any eldritch 'friends' around tonight. But we've got every mental health professional in this half of Equestria on hoof, just to be on the safe side.

Week 252 Wrap Up

Ah, people are arriving already. Well, I'm afraid that we're going to be a little bit delayed tonight. You see, when a certain draconequus, who shall remain nameless, discovered that this week's theme was "Summoned/Summoning", he insisted on 'summoning up an old friend of his'. And to put it quite simply, said 'friend' proceeded to make quite a mess of out Gallery here. And we're still in the process of cleaning it all up.

But in the mean time, allow me to keep the boredom at bay by telling a few choice jokes. So a Knight, a Rogue, and a Summoner walk into a bar, and the bartender says... uhh, why are you all looking at me like that? My reputation precedes me? And what exactly do you mean by that?

Actually, don't answer that. Because I've just been informed that the Gallery is all set now. So feel free to come on in and peruse tonight's exhibit. And should you happen to spot something tall, green, and tentacle-y, please tell him that Discord is still looking for him

Week 251 Wrap Up

Okay, everypony's here. Let's get this dance started!

Oh dance with your hooves, just as fast as you can!
Now flip it like a flapjack in a pan.
Do si do, now mind the rules,
With your old flat hooves just a-kickin' like mules!

Uhh... why is everypony looking at me like that? I thought squaredance music was popular here in Appleloosa... Wait, this is Ponyville? Oops. Well, I wasn't prepared for this. But fortunately, some local performers are prepared for this, and should do a much better job of providing dance music than I have. Let the show begin!

Week 250 Wrap Up

It's time to celebrate! It's time to mark a very important date! It's the day of the year that she was born on, and the day that she arrived here in Ponyville. So, everypony say it all together now:

Happy Birth-iversary, Rainbow Dash!


Now why didn't anypony say that with me? Wait... her Birth-iversary was last month? But I got all this stuff set up already. All these cakes, balloons, streamers, and especially presents... Why doesn't anypony tell me these things?

... Because I didn't ask... right. Ask a stupid question with Twilight around and you'll get a smart answer.

Anyway, we might as well enjoy ourselves here, or all of this stuff is just gonna go to waste. So what are you all waiting for, everypony? Let's party!
