Wherein SoQuoted makes the obvious connection between strippers and the My Little Pony toyline:

My Little Pony is not quite as skanky as Bratz. What more can I say about the stripper ponies?

Stripper names? Check: Paradise, Cherries Jubilee, Lickety Split, Galaxy, Morning Glory.


Garish ass tattooes? check


Neon makeup with criminal use of eye shadow? Obviously

I never quite put it together before, but it all fits: the proliferation of "tramp stamp" tattoos in the 90s is in direct correllation to the popularity of My Little Pony in the 80s. Brilliant. Go out in any club district in a major city and you'll see the tattoos, eye shadow, garish streaked hair. Damn you My Little Pony , how could you thank millions of 80s kids by turning them into the Girls Gone Wild/STD magnets of the modern age?

We do have some stripper ponies in the house, but the line has been drawn at skank dolls. And Barney. Very early, all relatives were told that any Barney related product would not be allowed across the threshold. We've been successful for 5 years.

someone got my goddaughter Bratz last Christmas. I swear to god they came with a dance club playset. I think I'll just stick to giving books as a gift. Nothing that will encourage her to get a belly piercing before puberty

I think books are great from our Uncle Jay!

Thats some funny shit right there.

My wife got my son some hip high, b&W striped, footless socks for him to wear in the winter, because sometimes baby clothes ride up, exposing their legs.

As much logical sense as that makes, I still can't get over the fact that my son is wearing leg warmers, and I'm half expecting to see neon fingerless gloves and jelly bracelets on him soon.
