Do sparkle ponies know they're sparkle ponies?

Postby LittleJack » Tue Jan 25, 2011 10:31 pm

Honest question - my wife, a non-burner, asked me today if sparkle ponies self-identify as such. I was flummoxed by the question, and honestly have no idea. Any thoughts?

Based on experience, I will hazard a guess that 15% of sparkle ponies are self-aware, another 25% are vaguely self-aware, and the other 60% are blissfully free of concern, +/- the considerable percentage of subjects that merely have fleeting and therefore legendary sparkle pony moments.

If the sparkle pony in question is a smokin' hot 24 yr old with perky tits and a booty that stops traffic then it really does not matter if they are self aware.

As a long time sparkle mule, i know a nice ass when i see one.

Most of the haters would kill to taste that honey glitter, but are just not willing to admit it.

Is this Hushville's Little Jack?
You know we have an invisible fence that keeps the sparkleponies away.

I'm still gazing in awe at the word "flummoxed". I will be using that word in some sort of conversation today---I promise! :D

Yeah, sparkle ponies are kinda like piles of hot Krispy Kremes; if you have the discipline to indulge only at your wise discretion, the fantastic sensual explosion is well worth the extra work. 8)

Just in case you didn't recognize the YAY! tattoo, yep, this is Hushville's very own Little Jack. That fence explains a lot - no wonder the only ones I see in the village are at Fruits and Nuts, which must be outside the fence.

I did, but I don't like to presume.

Would you still like a really nice dulcimer?

My sparkle pony embraces his...sparkly-ness. Lets hope he can make it this year.
