A Belly is Worth 1000 Jangles
“That, class, is why we got to where we are today,” said Hackney. *the clock chimes 3PM* See you tomorrow, class. Don’t forget that we’ll be having a test next week. [Outside school…]
“Look, the news van is truly back,” said Sweetheart.
“Folks, here we have our stars from last time and it looks like they just got out of school,” said Sherry. We’re going to see how our stars from last year feel this time around. How do you ponies feel about fat being in this time around?
“If that’s true, I think it’s great,” answered Bright Eyes. It means we won’t have to worry at all about being disliked for being fat, though we had that happen last night.
“Boy was that a night I won’t soon forget,” said Bon Bon.
“I’d rather forget it,” said Clover. It shows that there are people that don’t like us for being fat.
“I’ve got today’s paper and it’s true,” said Patch.
“Fat is the New Thin,” read Bright Eyes. Looks like it really is true.
“This is great,” said Melody. It means my band and I will still be loved with the extra weight, which is good because we do have a competition coming up.
“What do you ponies think is the reason for your success?” asked Sherry.
“Well, I’d have to say just being who we are,” said Sweetheart.
“We also needed to have the money to get the food that we ate to get this way,” replied Bright Eyes. If it weren’t for that, we wouldn’t be popular by anyone except ourselves, which wouldn’t be too bad except we would be pretty much be ignored.
“If fat is in, then I absolutely positively love it,” said Pinkie Pie. The more pink for me, the better.
“Fat is in, dahling?” questioned Rainbow Dash. Well that is just fabulous, dear. It gives me the reason to keep wearing my rainbow belt.
“Plus we get to continue wearing tight clothing,” said Bright Eyes.
“What more could you ask for?” asked Ace. First ponies gaining weight and now fat is popular? This is great.
“You said it,” said Lancer and Teddy together.
“Teddy just truly loves my fat body,” said Sweetheart. Not that he wouldn’t still be friends with me if I wasn’t fat but I guess this makes our friendship that much stronger.
“I suppose as long as we’re popular, even by just our own reasons, we’re fine,” said Melody.
“I just hope it doesn’t lead to bigger problems,” said Clover. We don’t want other ponies coming up to us when we don’t want them to.
“You’re right, Clover,” said Bon Bon.
“Still, I don’t truly think our parents would let them in while we’re sleeping,” said Sweetheart.
“I guess you’re right, Sweetheart” said Clover. *Star Catcher and her friends fly down*
“It appears we have a few special guests here,” said Sherry. Our sources tell us that you’re pegasus ponies from Butterfly Island, is that right?
“Yes and it’s certainly far away from here,” said Star Catcher.
“Very far away, yup,” said Thistle Whistle. *she whistles*
“What do you and your group think about fat being in?” asked Sherry.
“Well, as much as I appreciate it, it’s hard on my flying ability,” said Star Catcher. It’s much more tiring to come over here. Though I suppose I do have large enough wings to help me along the way, but my friends don’t, their wings are fairly small.
“Not to into it, nope, very tiring to fly now,” said Thistle Whistle. *she whistles again*
“It is tiring,” said Coconut Grove. We generally hang out here for the next few days after we arrive here.
“There you have it, folks, the ponies here love the added attention,” said Sherry. Thanks so much to you all for taking the time to chat with us.
“No problem,” said Melody. *the news crew packs up and drives away*
“Now that was a real treat,” said Minty. *she giggles*
“Very sweet,” said Sweetberry.
“Now this is what we’ve been waiting for,” said Ace.
