Weirdness Magnet-The possibility of high weirdness happening to ponies can’t be underestimated. At all.
And, we’re talking weirdness here. Like Cerberus escaping from Tartarus-because he wants to play fetch sort of weirdness. Like the founding of the Cutie Mark Crusaders. Or discovering the last supply of the first minting coins of the Two Princesses and demanding the (still legal!) labor from them, because that’s what the currency promises.
It’s at least funny to somebody, at some point in time.
