Bronies and the Good Book of urban slang

23 Nov

Urban Dictionary defines Urban Dictionary as “an online cesspit of pre-teen nonsense, pretentiously (courting) itself as a ‘slang dictionary.’ Most ‘entries’ are unreadable, illiterate slops of pedantic s**t stemming from the creativity-throttled minds of our braindead youth.”

Excellent.

After a glowing self-endorsement like that, who wouldn’t want to know to know what the Good Book had to say about Bronies?

Eight entries are listed. Many, indeed, fit the above description.

Here are some of the most noteworthy:

#1 The term used to describe the fan community(usually of the older group, males and females) of the show My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. The term was coined on 4chan’s /co/ board. It is the plural form of ‘Brony.’

— Fairly straightforward. Nice, concrete definition with a touch of history. 

#3 Bronies simply means people who are of an older age group and like to watch My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. There is nothing particularly exciting about this, but they make a big deal out of it.

 Jump on to a forum most places online, and you will see these people often pushing their fandom. As in, you will be on a forum for cars, and someone will have their display picture as a pony, and all their posts will be about ponies. Then when people accuse them of being off topic, they go into a rant about acceptance, as if watching a cartoon is some sort of big revelation.

— Now here’s some of that hallmark unwarranted hostility. However, it gives qualitative balance in a way that traditional research or news could not.

#4  A new subbranch that is a part of “Furries” or the “Furryfandom”. Lookup Furry and Anthropomorphic Since they are a Bronies, they are a Furry.

— OK, too much context. Best not to Google any of those terms.
