Wooooah boiii! I’ve been waiting for a story like this ever since I started this blog. Bronies are usually a peaceful bunch and things have been pretty calm since the great Derpy debacle, so I had to manufacture drama out of absolutely mundane stuff in order to keep things running. But hold on to your hooves, and put some popcorn in your microwave…
There have been rumors for some time that two popular MLP parody groups, SherclopPones (who make Friendship is Witchcraft) and FiMFlamFilosophy (who make The Mentally Advanced Series) don’t really like each other very much. This stemmed mostly from various sarcastic quips they used to direct at each other, but most people thought they were just ‘trolling the audience’, as internet jokester people are wont to do.
Well, apparently the great Sherclop vs FiMFlam feud is REAL! It did start out as a joke, but at some point things came to a pickle (by which I mean, turned very sour).
In a tumblr post by Jenny of SherclopPones, she really tells it like it is! Apparently FiMFlam is a jerk and a woman-hater, so they refused to make a collab with him. He did not take the rejection well. In fact it seems there’s a pattern of FiMFlam being rejected by female collaborators… Make of that what you will!
Anyway, in the interest of being impartial, I also have to examine FiMFlam’s side of the story. He made several posts on the subject. In the first one he claims that Jenny just didn’t get his brilliant, multi-layered joke about choking on dicks. This is the joke, by the way:
There is an interesting thing about being of the female gender. It’s that if you don’t choke on a dick at least once, then odds are you either aren’t trying very hard or you need a new boyfriend.
Now, I’m just a little filly, so maybe I don’t understand the subtlety and intricacies of this kind of humor, but it doesn’t seem like something you tell a lady! You can’t just say it’s ‘just a joke’, it’s pretty damn offensive and hardly even funny. What would Lauren Faust say?
In the second response he accuses Sherclop of being ‘not cereal’ via not deleting their emails, which is presumably a ‘cereal’ way of doing things. To which I say: what? Unless it’s spam, or some nerdy kid is stalking you, why would you ever delete an email? Grasping at straws here, mister!
And finally, he posted a long-winded explanation re: how his joke is actually not sexist.
I mean… really? Do I even need to start?
Anyway, this was PONY RUNOFF coverage of the first big PONY BEEF of the summer. There is no doubt we will see more of these, as the fanbase becomes more and more unhinged, with no ponies to guide us via the ‘spirit of friendship’. So, stay tuned and subscribe!
Is FiMFlamFilosophy a big fat jerk? (Yes)
Is he jelly that FiW is more popular and has better jokes?
Does ponyless summer provide a fertile field for some quality drama?
