wow, I JUST saw this on Ponibooru not 2 minutes ago. I'm either behind or right with with the times
awwww, filly!Applejack's hat. The cuteness, it HURTS.
he was such a cute little colt
Better get to work...
Is he having a heart attack?
Silly colts, they never get to have any fun.Silly earth ponies, they can't do much....(I made myself feel sad)*Looks back at filly applejack with hat*All better!
I laughed. :)Big Mac's plow-plight. Plowight.
Worker Ponies of the World, Unite!
Great, now he gets heart attack every time he pulls something.
Why does he have his cutie mark before he's farming apples?
Big Mac became big and strong because of this, it's a respectable thing. But he still wanted that hoofmas airplane. Unfortunately Granny Smith thought he'd put his eye out and denied. BB gun anyone?Also Applefilly with hat is Silly Applejack.
Poor Little Big Mac. Applejack gets an awesome hat while he gets work.
Mac's goin' HAM in the last panel.
That is the face of shattered dreams.
Okay, seriously, this made me tear up a little! Poor Mac is expecting an airplane, something awesome and fun that he wants, and instead Granny Smith basically says, "GET TO WORK, LAZY!"Granny Smith is a troll too! Who knew?
Aww poor Big Mac (or little in that as the case may be). Also Little AJ with her hat made me D'aww
Join the nintendo, i mean, brony club today little mac!
Granny Smith,getting children to run the applefarm. So she doesn't have too. Child Labor Laws do not work on Granny Smith.
No wonder hes so ripped
Oh jeez, just like getting socks for Christmas.
You see Mac's face in that second panel? Take a good, long look at that face. That is the face of a stallion who has realized his life will never go beyond his own home. That is the face of a stallion whose dreams have been torn out from under his hooves. That is the face of a stallion who has lost his possible future to his real destiny.When you look at the Big Macintosh of the present, you notice he is quiet, and looks very wise in his reticence. He does not speak because he is resigned to his fate. He seems so wise because his harsh reality has left him aged beyond his years.That is what you are all loling about. Your lulz are aimed at a colt with a crushed spirit.
Escape the plantation, Mac! Wade in the water! Go North!
I feel really bad for him...
@SiddharthaAt least socks are kinda nice... no this is like getting a shovel and then your grandma says, now go dig me a ditch.
Dat Applejack. I demand a walpaper of that Applejack.
what a troll.
There was two kind of ponies. There was the house pony and the field pony. The house pony, they lived in the house, with master. They dressed pretty good. They ate good, cause they ate his food.....what he left. They lived in the attic or the basement, but still they lived near their master, and they loved their master, more than their master loved himself. They would give their life to save their masters house quicker than their master would. The house pony, if the master said "We got a good house here" the house pony say "Yeah, we got a good house here". Whenever the master would said we, he'd say we. That's how you can tell a house pony. If the master's house caught on fire, the house ponywould fight harder to put the blaze out than the master would. If the master got sick, the house pony would say "What's the matter, boss, we sick?" We sick! He identified himself with his master, more than the master identified with himself. And if you came to the house pony and said "Let's run away, Let's escape, Let's separate" the house pony would look at you and say "Man, you crazy. What you mean separate? Where is there a better house than this? Where can I wear better clothes than this? Where can I eat better food than this?" On that same plantation, there was the field pony. The field pony, those were the masses. There was always more ponies in the field as there were ponies in the house. There, the pony in the field caught hell. He ate leftovers. In the house, they ate fresh apples. The pony in the field didn't get nothin' but apple cores. He lived in a shack, in a hut. He hated his master. I say, he hated his master. He was intelligent. That house pony loved his master. But that field pony, remember, they were in the majority, and they hated their master. When the house caught on fire, he didn't try to put it out, that field pony prayed for a wind. For a breeze. When the master got sick, the field pony prayed that he died. If someone come to the field pony and said "Let's separate, let's run." He didn't say "Where we going?" he said "Any place is better than here".
granny smith is always granny
I usually get socks, deoderant, and a couple cans of corned beef hash.
Granny Smith be trolling. Poor Big Mac. And for Christmas, you get... back to work!
Well, that just plain sucks! >:Darn you, Granny - Free Mac!
I started crying. No pony should ever have that happen to them, deapite living on a farm or not.
And his birthday gift is his very own farm plot to plow! Every day! For the rest of natural life!
That's what happens when you are a stallion in a mare's world, where your only possible fate is backbreaking field labour while you fertilize the rulng matriarchy!
in this white mare worldwe the ones working
Ugh these comments are disheartening. It's a little dark humor but come on.Colts hold a variety of respectable positions just as often as mares. Just look at Hoity Toity or Quills and Sofas or the Wonderbolts... it's just not really important to the mane narrative. Equestria is a better place. Mac probably went through an experience like AJ did before realizing he was happy on the farm. I mean why not? Tons of beautiful land, sense of responsibility, solid place in a good community. Familial love is a lot tighter and neighbors act like good folk instead of treating you with paranoia and disdain. So it's probably less like servitude and more like doing the chores. Holiday trolling aside.I'm betting that plane was at the bottom of the bag, but I guess I'm being optimistic.Nevermind there probably aren't airplanes in Equestria. Just sayin'.
Well he's a tough colt around lol
I think granny will get a payback someday ...
Anypony else notice Granny Smith has a Santa Claus style hat?APPLE DAY = CHRISTMAS
This reminds me of the first time I played Minecraft with my friends.Me:"Alright guys, I'm here. Whats everyone doing?"Friend:"Well, Kevin has gone off to make a house out of ice on the side of a mountain, while I'm build a massive lighthouse to add to our old house."Me:"Awesome. What do I get to do?"Friend:*Long pause* "We need a garden."The next 5 hours with me looking after various gardens around the level, while everyone else did awesome things.
Poor Little Big Mac... He should have become a boxer.
Wow Celestia isn't the only troll pony in Equestria. This is also why we have modern farm equipment and child labor laws now.
So Granny was already ancient when Mac was little. I guess that means nowadays she's just plain decrepit.
poor Mac *helps by pushing*
I can tell most here have never lived on a farm.Most farm children growup with the life, and the work, often thay want to help, to do something, to show themselves capable. Gotta remember, there is, far as I have seen, no nintindo, no game rooms, no amusments that your used to. Thay eather did things with there friends, or did 'chores', or did nothing at all. And when you live far out of town, well, there are not very many people around for you to play with, or too many things for one to do, other than chores and the like.The comic was a bit dark in its humor, and again, I expect was drawn by someone whos never really lived on a farm.
What Mac wants isn't an airplane like WE know, he wants an air plane to shape wood better. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plane_%28tool%29Air powered planes are so much easier to use than hoof planes.
Explain why he says very little now he has no expectations for joy * wipes a tear away and snickers at cute apple jack*
I'd totally be an Earth Pony, Seth. Nothing but peace and harmony
@AlyeskabirdWell, this is mostly just dark humor (and I console myself with the thought that Big Mac ended up spending his nights with half the fillies in Ponyville; really, aside from Caramel, are there any other stallions in the town?) but I agree. Anyone who ever lived on a farm or had relatives who did is probably wondering why people are complaining about the "unfairness" of this comic.
awww man .Big Mac got trolled by Granny Smith
trolled by granny smith?lol big mac..."consarnit i knew i shoulda just been a pimp...."
And we now know how Big Macintosh got as jacked as he is today.
How sad. :-) :-( :-) But Big Mac would probably prefer this as an origin story over the one Gavalanche came up with :-)
Poor little Mac. He never got his airplane either, did he? Horse apples, he was so adorable. Granny Smith why did you crush his hopes?!?!
Crazy backwards world where the women are in charge.On earth: "Hey wanna hear a joke? Womens rights"In Equestria: "Hey wanna hear a jokes? Mens rights"
WORST GIFT EVER! OF ALL TIME!
well thats a new way to look at "HNNNNNNNNG".
