So it's 11:50pm here in Wisconsin, and I decide to go and get some food...
I pull into the 24hour drive-though at McDonald's.
"Can I help you?", the speakers ask
"Uh, Yea. I'd like a Number 1 with a large coke.. No ice."
"Will that be it?"

I pause

"You have any of those pony toys around?"
"Lemme check"
There is a wait for about 45 seconds. He comes back
"Yea, we have some, you want one of those horses too?"

I fought with myself... Should I correct him? Would that be odd?

"Yea, toss one in" I said, a little more meekly than I should of.

He gave me the price... I should of asked for the yellow one when I had the chance. Should I ask at the window? What exactly is the pony-negotiation protocol is something like this? I round my car around the corner to the window and pay. It was a girl. The person who took my order was a guy. There is a disconnect. I didn't say anything. I get my credit card handed back to me.

I silently drive on to the next window. I get my bag of food and my large coke from another girl.

"The horse is in the bag", the girl said.

I pause again, and then it get the best of me...

"It's not a horse... is a PONY!"

It was like I was watching myself say it. I wanted to face-palm right there. I came to the realization I just lost my chance to ask for the yellow one... I was going to have to deal with with I got.

I drove home in darkness. "I bet I got Pinkie Pie", I thought to myself. That would be neutral... I wanted Fluttershy, but I guess I could live with Twi. I hope it wasn't Rarity. Please let it not be that one...

It was Rarity. She now stands proudly next to my monitor.

I want to laugh, but inside, I kind of want to die....

    I can't really say too much because of a current project, but You and Hasbro both dude.

    Actually, corporate had no idea what was going until two months ago. Let's just say they have been....adjusting.

    It's a cartoon that got started by a gal who really knows how to direct good cartoons, and with some help she put together a cast and crew full of great writers, animators, and voice actresses who really wanted to make a solid show that would be well received, and poured a lot of hard work and love into making it happen.

    Not hard to figure out, really.

    I mean, I could go on and on about it, but I prefer not to go the route of Halkun, and just let the evidence speak for itself. It's girly as hell, but anything can appeal well above its target demographic if it's good enough.

    The simple answer would be "because it's very good"

    Halkun, man, exact same thing happened to me ordering one of the lil' plastic mold figures off Amazon. 'Styles may vary' indeed. :<

    Pfft, I'd just tell them I was getting it for my daughter and she really wanted the yellow one

    You need to learn how to get things without revealing your dark secrets

    They really should have seen this coming the moment they came up with the concept for The Hub.
