Battle of the Bulge II: Fit to be Fat (9)

“My goodness, dahlings more fame for us all,” announced Rainbow Dash entering.
“I’ve been there. I told Rainbow Dash all about it last night and she was thrilled. It’s certainly one of the best sites I’ve ever been to. The images are very clear as well, down to even our belly buttons,” added Bright Eyes.
“Wait, what’s that word at the very bottom of that photo?” asked Melody. *Bright Eyes zooms in on that part of the image*
“I didn’t even see that when I looked before. It reads “PLUMP” in all capital letters so it’s an acronym, or a word short for something else but what could this mean? Looks like we’ll all need to do some research to find out more about this.” said Bright Eyes. [Meanwhile…]
“I call it Plump Pineapple! They’ll never suspect that what they’re about to enjoy is going to bring an end to their days as massive mares,” proclaimed Stella.
“I’d like to see the look on their faces when they discover their weight has dropped,” said Mary.
“We still have our original plan first. We, the ponies of Ponyville’s Largest Undetectable Mischievous Practices or PLUMP will bring the downfall of their disgusting town. We’ve been cleverly hidden in the water snapping photos with our underwater cameras to obtain evidence that these heavy hooves exist. They made a mockery of my equipment last time!” yelled Stella.
“They destroyed practically everything, including our outfits,” added Stephanie.
“Just wait until the Pudgyville Press comes out tomorrow. They’ll see a bit more of themselves,” grinned Stella. [The next day, at Bright Eyes’ house…]
“Oh the paper’s here. *she picks up the paper and opens it. What’s this? Pudgyville is for the lazy and stupid who don’t know about diet and proper exercise?! Alright, we must meet in our clubhouse,” said Bright Eyes. [Inside their clubhouse…]
“Attention, everyone. Bright Eyes has some important news to share,” said Starlight tapping on a tea cup.
“I found this article in today’s paper. It talks about how we just sit around doing nothing and uses the photos we saw the other day as proof,” explained Bright Eyes.
“That’s crazy, we are not lazy. Sure we’re overweight but if we were lazy, we wouldn’t even go to school. We’re just less active because of our weight,” protested Melody.
“The mayor needs to know about this,” stated Bon Bon.
“Who exactly is our mayor?” asked Clover.
“Well it was the same pony that helped make the home for the Green-Winged Songbirds’ home a national landmark but he’s since passed away so I don’t know what this town or Ponyville will do to replace him,” said Bright Eyes.
“Maybe you could be mayor, Bright Eyes. After all, you do know much more about the environment than we do, or at least about protecting it,” suggested Clover.
“I can’t be for both towns,” protested Bright Eyes.
“Well then maybe Ponyville can use the skinnier you as their mayor?” added Clover.
“We should find two ponies that would like to be candidates and have everyone vote on their candidate,” said Starlight.
“Great idea, Starlight,” said Clover.
“I truly love it, not that yours was bad, Clover,” said Sweetheart.
“How will we get pony candidates?” asked Bon Bon.
“We’ll have to use flyers and the newspaper to advertise,” replied Starlight.
“Though not everyone likes us being fat so they might not want to vote,” said Clover.
“That may be true, Clover but we won’t know unless we try so let’s get started. Some of us can put up flyers while the rest can get us into the newspapers. *She and the others split up to get their jobs done* I just hope that after all this is done, we’ll finally have a mayor that doesn’t mind us being overweight because a mayor that hates us being overweight will take down all our hard work,” said Starlight.

“No mayor will come work for porky ponies like you all,” laughed Stella.
