This week's theme was a pony in danger or a perilous pony.

Because of school films in 1990-1991(one of which was Charlie and the Chocolate Factory(the first half anyway)), when I first acknowledged MLP as a thing, I became terrified of being turned into a blueberry or being run down by a train. So have some fears taken overtly colorful form.

Also have some Dahl opinions. It's been 20 years since I've read/seen C&CF, but my opinion is that Violet Beauregard has the worst punishment. Veruca Salt and Augustus Gloop win their prizes as excessive consumers. And they meet their fates through mechanical means. Mike, Violet, and Charlie win their prizes as standard consumers. Mike is an obsessive. His fate is to be shrunk to become one with his obsession. His punishment is also purely mechanical. Charlie is a poor kid with a heart of gold. His fate is to inherit the factory. This is main character syndrome. Violet is a champion. Violet is turned into a blueberry and taken away by oompaloompas. Violet's fate is most disturbing to me because in the end it's rational creatures capitalizing on a victim of the institution.

Finally ,have some train opinions. Trains are big and metal and fast. I am smaller and flesh and slower, especially 20 years ago.

I don't think this is what they meant by "Artist Training Grounds," you know.

Somehow I got off track.
Thank you for usually commenting ABronyAccount. Your lines are very clean and your jokes are usually better than mine.
