[14:15] <@Sylocat> That’s Double Rainboom animation
[14:15] <JeffersonLeeEng> play
[14:15] <Froborr> Pinkie Pie WOULD think startled screams are a greeting, given how much people give them on seeing her…
[14:15] <@Sylocat> Pinkie: “That’s the study of Genies, right?”
[14:15] <Froborr> Pinkie Pie is UNSTOPPABLE at Jenga.
[14:15] <DecoyOctopus> pinkie must be amazing at jenga
[14:15] <DecoyOctopus> jinx
[14:16] <Guest62044> Arrgh, my episode keeps stopping to load.
[14:16] <@Sylocat> Uh oh
[14:16] <DecoyOctopus> oh hey the southerners are related to everyone in town
[14:16] <DecoyOctopus> shocker
[14:16] <JeffersonLeeEng> cousin?
[14:16] <Froborr> Wait, is there some dude talking over the credits?
[14:16] <@Sylocat> Wait… what?
[14:16] <DecoyOctopus> @froborr: there was, yeah
[14:16] <@Sylocat> Please tell me that’s just a one-time thing
[14:17] <JeffersonLeeEng> no vo here
[14:17] <mere_oblivion> “There was a little error at my end but everything’s going good”
[14:17] <JeffersonLeeEng> commercial skip
[14:17] <@Sylocat> 4th cousin twice removed? I’m related to several thousand people by that much
[14:17] <DecoyOctopus> “then there’s me. the boring one!”
[14:17] <JeffersonLeeEng> fourth counsin twice removed
[14:18] <Froborr> lol
[14:18] <mere_oblivion> Some of them even sound like southerners, on your paternal grandfather’s side.
[14:18] <JeffersonLeeEng> best family twirl ever
[14:19] <@Sylocat> Uh oh
[14:19] <Froborr> Ah, of course it’ll turn out she’s not really related.
[14:19] <@Sylocat> Incoming moral
[14:19] <DecoyOctopus> god mac’s face
[14:19] <@Sylocat> Wait, they’re double-checking BEFORE the embarrassing reunion?
[14:19] <Froborr> I’m hoping for another double moral: don’t get excited about things until you know they’re real, and family is about more than who spawned who.
[14:19] <JeffersonLeeEng> uh oh…smudged bit on family tree
[14:20] <Froborr> Sudden ad to skip.
[14:20] <Froborr> Ugh, that ad placement was awful.
[14:20] <DecoyOctopus> I’m 5 minutes in and haven’t hit any ads
[14:20] <DecoyOctopus> probably because of adblock
[14:20] <JeffersonLeeEng> silly granny senior moment…where’s my bonnet?
[14:21] <@Sylocat> Yeesh
[14:21] <@Sylocat> Eeyup…. grrr
[14:21] <@Sylocat> Ah, here’s the song
[14:21] <Froborr> Ugh, all those ads stuck me SO far behind.
[14:22] <DecoyOctopus> oh good lord that pun
[14:22] <@Sylocat> Note to selves, next time link to keepvid as well
[14:22] <mere_oblivion> So, it’s a road-movie musical. Or in this case, a Joad-movie musical?
[14:22] <Froborr> Joad?
[14:22] <JeffersonLeeEng> apples to the core…eyup
[14:22] <@Sylocat> Grapes of Wrath?
[14:22] <mere_oblivion> Grapes of Wrath.
[14:22] <Froborr> Whoa, angry Yup.
[14:23] <Froborr> Oh, I haven’t read that in almost 20 years, that was the name of the family?
[14:23] <JeffersonLeeEng> pinkie gets a verse
[14:24] <JeffersonLeeEng> apple cart crash
[14:24] <Froborr> “Any cliche you can throw at me”
[14:24] <DecoyOctopus> no no you should pay the ferry instead of fording the river
[14:24] <DecoyOctopus> you’ll lose less oxen
[14:24] <JeffersonLeeEng> pinkie pie has died of dysentery
[14:24] <@Sylocat> Or caulk the wagon and float it, but that never works
[14:25] <@Sylocat> HAHAH
[14:25] <DecoyOctopus> big mac has a broken leg
[14:25] <@Sylocat> To quote UltraJMan, “YOU DID NOT JUST CRASH!!!”
[14:25] <@Sylocat> Oh great, now the sound is out of sync
[14:25] <JeffersonLeeEng> this one i for the scrapbook
[14:25] <DecoyOctopus> apple bloom stop trying to be hip
[14:26] == Guest62044 [52088c35@gateway/web/freenode/ip.] has quit [Ping timeout: 272 seconds]
[14:26] <Froborr> …won’t the water dissolve the sugarsap?
[14:26] <@Sylocat> Good, say “COULD” be worse, rather than “couldn’t.” Always good advice
[14:26] <mere_oblivion> “Come on back to the raf’, Huck!”
[14:26] <JeffersonLeeEng> bye map
[14:27] <Froborr> I lost the map on a road trip once.
[14:27] <Froborr> We were on the freeway with the windows open, the wind sucked it right out the window.
[14:27] <JeffersonLeeEng> are we supposed to go thru a cave?
[14:27] <Froborr> I was like 10?
[14:27] <@Sylocat> Applejack, she’s a Cutie Mark Crusader. Destroying things is what she DOES
[14:28] <Froborr> Um… rivers don’t split like that…
[14:28] <@Sylocat> They do in Equestria
[14:28] <DecoyOctopus> of course they do, what are you talking about
[14:28] <@Sylocat> Of course, Pinkie isn’t scared
[14:28] <JeffersonLeeEng> equestria geography Weird
[14:29] <Froborr> No, she just giggles at the ghosties.
[14:29] <@Sylocat> Hahah… they sound like MST3K commentators
[14:29] <Froborr> Games Pinkie is good at: Jenga, Pokemon Snap, Fatal Frame.
[14:29] <DecoyOctopus> I can’t wait for the Emperor’s New Groove PMVs now
[14:29] <JeffersonLeeEng> eyub–hey!
[14:30] <mere_oblivion> Mac’s branching out into new linguistic realms.
[14:30] <JeffersonLeeEng> scrapbook means upload to facebook, right?
[14:30] <Froborr> This is like every family trip I ever went on: argument, disaster, recriminations.
[14:30] <Froborr> They just totally killed that duck.
[14:31] <@Sylocat> Haha… the sound out of sync made it sound like Applejack was saying one of Big Mac’s lines… like in Singing in the Rain
[14:31] <@Sylocat> Ohhhhhhhhh yeah
[14:31] <@Sylocat> Quick, make a paddle and steer for… too late
[14:31] <Froborr> Oh, wait, there it flew past, perfectly fine with its new wagonwheel necklace.
[14:31] <JeffersonLeeEng> or does pinkie prefer tumblr?
[14:31] <mere_oblivion> Applejack: “Worst voice-syncing ever!”
[14:31] <Froborr> Who is taking the pictures?
[14:31] <@Sylocat> “Yes, yes, yes.” “No, no, no!”
[14:31] <DecoyOctopus> @jefferson: probably. or pinterest
[14:31] <Froborr> Ugh, unskippable ad.
[14:32] <JeffersonLeeEng> instagram?
[14:32] <Froborr> FU DailyMotion.
[14:32] <DecoyOctopus> that too
[14:32] <JeffersonLeeEng> Worst family roadtrip…ever
[14:32] <@Sylocat> Yeah, next week, link to Keepvid, and download the episode beforehand
[14:32] <@Sylocat> No ads
[14:33] <Froborr> The “pretty paper” gag made me laugh.
[14:33] <mere_oblivion> Wow, they call this having their family fall apart? In my fam-of-origin this would have been the Best Road Trip Ever.
[14:33] <Froborr> Oh, it’s not your fault, Apples, it’s the evil miasma of conflict Pinkie Pie releases.
[14:33] <DecoyOctopus> goldie delicious is the average tumblr user post-tumblr; hundreds of cats in a wrecked house
[14:33] <Froborr> Wait, no, that was a Deep Space Nine episode.
[14:34] <Froborr> Heheh, “big unit.”
[14:34] <JeffersonLeeEng> not an ep of hoarding buried alive?
[14:34] <@Sylocat> Wait, wasn’t Golden Delicious at the family reunion in Ep1?
[14:34] <DecoyOctopus> don’t think so
[14:35] <DecoyOctopus> wait that tail
[14:35] <@Sylocat> Oh my goodness
[14:35] <DecoyOctopus> what
[14:35] <Froborr> Golden Delicious went to pick up some fresh cats from the Internet.
[14:35] <@Sylocat> Dust cats!
[14:35] <Froborr> Ah, I see she has a Toxoplasma gondii infection.
[14:35] <JeffersonLeeEng> moral the first
[14:36] <Froborr> The dust cat was CREEPY!
[14:36] <@Sylocat> Ooh, she IS related to Pinkie!
[14:36] <@Sylocat> The Jenga blocks!
[14:36] <DecoyOctopus> and it’s over
[14:36] <@Sylocat> Hey, you were right, the moral was “Family isn’t about who spawned you”
[14:37] <Froborr> It’s a good moral that bears repeating!
[14:37] <@Sylocat> Wait, who’s… her TAIL is holding the… sheesh, Pinkie’s become overpowered between seasons!
[14:37] <JeffersonLeeEng> moral the second
[14:37] <Froborr> Ah, that’s how she took the pictures on the waterfall!
[14:37] <@Sylocat> Her mane was able to hold a flashlight
[14:37] <DecoyOctopus> there were like three morals somehow, feels like they’re trying to cram more in per episode lately
[14:37] <Froborr> Eh, Pinkie Pie was always OP.
[14:37] <Froborr> Reprise!
[14:38] <@Sylocat> Apple Bloom has a way of MAKING things exciting, usually by causing explosions
[14:38] <Froborr> Forgiveness, eyup.
[14:38] <Froborr> ARgue argue argue!
[14:38] <Froborr> Man, this season has been REALLY good!
[14:39] <@Sylocat> Yes, yes it has
[14:39] <DecoyOctopus> aside from Daring Don’t
[14:39] <Froborr> Only misstep so far has been the Daring Do ep.
[14:39] <DecoyOctopus> and Castlemania was meh
[14:39] <@Sylocat> I even liked the Daring Do ep
[14:39] <DecoyOctopus> but yeah, pretty good so far
[14:39] <Froborr> At this rate, Season 4 could give Season 2 a run for its money.
