We Just Found Out What "Bronies" Are, And Good For Them, I Guess. Or Not. Whatever.


We just found out what "Bronies" are, and we were pretty shocked when we realized it wasn't a joke.

"Bronies" are adult males who have an obsession with My Little Pony. We're talking merchandise, clothing, the show itself, the magic of friendship the show promotes, and everything else. Also, we know what you're thinking. But supposedly, most bronies are pretty adamant that they are "definitely not perverts or anything," so we're glad we could get all that out of the way right off the bat. 

Someone even made a documentary about them. Check it out here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bronies:_The_Extremely_Unexpected_Adult_Fans_of_My_Little_Pony


Here's a photo taken from WhatIsABrony.com:


Here's the thing. We're not out to bash these fellas. We're simply trying to understand them. Because we can't say we don't enjoy doing weird stuff. I mean, we dress up as Bigfoot and film ourselves smashing shit in our backyard with a sledgehammer, for God's sake. 

So what do you think? 

Are the Bronies really just fans of My Little Pony and life-long subscribers to the idea of the magic of friendship? Or are they some sort of underground organization of psychopaths that has its roots in some creepy-ass subreddit? It's impossible to really know, but we're going to stick with the latter idea for now, because it seems way more realistic. But also, does anyone actually care? The answer is no. So let's move on. Cool. Thanks.
