If you haven't watched Baby Cakes yet...spoilers ahead...
First of all, frickin' LOVED the episode. It was so stinkin' cute. And it kinda made me love Pinkie Pie. She just replaced Fluttershy in my list of Fave ponies...not that that's saying much, because Pinkie was last and Flutters was second to last. Sorry, Flutters! It's not like I hate you or anything, just don't like you as much as the others...
First of all, after most people applied logic to pony genetics, this episode shows: screw logic. If you have any relative in the past who was a unicorn or a pegasus, you have the potential to have one as a foal. Oh, and apparently ponies DO interbreed 'tween the races. Up until now, all related ponies were the same race, or so it seemed.
...in real life, baby twins that are carried to full term and born healthy without causing danger to the mother in equines are extremely rare...this has bothered me since I heard about the episode. But seriously, logic need not apply.
Having to change diapers by mouth? Ew.
So one month old baby foals can walk, run, walk on cielings, fly, use magic, discern between good and bad stand up comedy...hell, Apple Bloom probably could buck apples at a month old. Well, it makes sense they at least walk at a month old...they're ponies.
Who thought of Surprise when Pinkie Pie was covered in flour? ^_^
Pinkie didn't test the water before she put the babies in it. ...That's a big baby no no!!! >_< Again...thinking too logical
"We do not put anything in our mouth that we cannot safely and properly digest!" ...except for everything else ponies have to do with their mouths. Like changing dirty diapers.
Scary baby moment in the hallway was funny. Oh. My. God. Evil Pound Cake walking on the ceiling was so friggin' cute. Can you imagine how much trouble baby Dash must have been for her parents if she was flying at one month old? And, of course, the question everypony wants to know..if a one month old baby can fly and use magic...WHAT'S THE MATTER WITH YOU, SCOOTALOO AND SWEETIE BELLE?!?
Cutest moment in all of ponydom? Baby Pound Cake flying past Pinkie, saying, "Weeee!"
So unicorns CAN fly with magic? Well, I know, she's a baby, and apparently they get powerful magic bursts that they eventually lose and have to learn their own special magic and what not...but using unicorn magic to fly could have saved Rarity some trouble when she was falling to her doom...twice.
...Pinkie's lesson in friendship had nothing to do with friendship...
Babies have that incredible ability to drive you insane, put you through hell, make you wish you didn't have to take care of them at times, and YET there's that one moment when they laugh, smile, giggle, reach out for you, or say your name (a la the twin's saying Pinkie's name), that make you willing to do it all over again. So true. So, so, true. ^_^
Next week - Applejack episode.
- "Well, Ah'm just pleased as punch!"
So am I, Applejack. So am I
