Some animator at Pixar needs a towel right now--imagine what this will do for the realism of their hair animation.

I think they already do a good job with their hare animation.

Hhmm, well generally speaking ponytail is forrmed by taking a fist full of hair at the back of the head and wrapping something around that bundle to keep it in place.

/rtfa last night.
//wish there was some way just to kill that one curly section at the base of my head that royally farks up my ponytails.

My nemesis had always been those two bits on the sides that hadn't gotten long enough to be included in the ponytail and couldn't really otherwise get groomed, so they just hung there forlornly.

At this point I'm basically convinced that there are no actual bronies. Just trolls trolling people who can't stand all the pony macros.

Short for "image macro". Which is the name for such things, even if it's a stupid one.

Honestly? I've never watched an episode of My Little Pony in my life. Some of the clips are cute, the animation/drawing style is good, and the parodies are funny.

I agree, that is a stupid name for them. Totally not what I think of when I hear macro.

As a proponent of ponytails, I encourage science to solve the issue of bad ponytails and continue the search for the elusive "perfect" ponytail.... on females.... and non-equestrian.

Look, the biggest demographic for MLP is guys from 20-30 - and that's not just young fathers. I used to think it was weird too until I had it on while babysitting my nieces. It's like crack. Just watch the damn show and tell me what you really think instead of some gut reaction based on the old remnants of "ewww girls have coodies."

Ah, the Ren and Stimpy style parody based on shock and reference humor. Meh.

Reasonable effort
Lacks creativity
Low re-watch value
Parodies are supposed to be funnier than the original.

At least your hang down, my side shorties stick straight out.

Bad ponytail? There is no such thing! I love (single*) ponytails. On women. Long, short, curly, straight... doesn't matter. Sexy as all hell to me. BIE is nice, but PIE is vastly under-rated. Any Farkettes willing to publicly post their cute ponytails in the thread?

This is not in any way shape or form a bookmark. Nope.

\No horse ponytails either. Sarah Jessica Parker is okay though.
\\Double ponytails are for little girls and f'd up porn stars. No thank you.

That style looks okay, on a girl at least.

I have the "holy crap curly" that makes it turn into a mass of tangles. Random people strike up conversations and tell me how to eliminate split ends.

Um, no. I have a ponytail because it's low maintenance.

WTF am I looking at? No... seriously... a bad drawing of SJP (or maybe a guy?) with a giant, living commando teddy bear... yet it doesn't look Japanese. I'm scared.
