There's some guys out there who are big fans of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. It seems kinda weird but I've been checking it out and I can't think of anything bad to say about it. It proves to me that something can be made for children and still have elements that even older people can enjoy. It also proves that adult humor and references need not be a euphemism for "crass and vulgar".
Anyway, I spotted a "My little manatee" on Katie Cook's blog that she made as part of her announcement that she would writing for a new My Little Pony comic book, and I just went with that. Ms. Cook, If you see this please know that I don't want to steal your idea. I just saw something cool and wanted to add too it.
