We now return you to your fifth rerun of Family Guy.
yeah, heard about this in the comments yesterday
ok that was kinda funny.
Of course this happens between king of the hill :/
This is only going to make me hate Adult Swim even MORE.
Protip: Adult Swim hasn't been funny since 2007.
Wait, is Adult Swim still going?
"ProTip: yelling on the internet about pony shows will not get you laid"Yeah, this is why i don't watch [adult swim] anymore..that, and they hardly have any shows that garter my interest until they do (i.e. import the show "Mongrels")I say f**k them!
I love the smell of jimmies being rustled in the morning.
when were we trying to get laid by yelling on the internet
Ahh AS Lets watch some more of your shitty showes that no one ever watches
[AS] is just trying to stay relevant.
Curses! They figured out our master plan! But how? How could our obsession over a children's show in order to obtain sexual relations have been figured out so EASILY!?
@ShadowofadoubtBrilliant timing!Still, all press is good press. And if adult swin heard of our complaints then Hasbro sure as hell heard about it too.
That was pretty funny. I don't know if that was the intention, but I think it was funnyProtip: A LOT of bronies DO have girlfriends
First? And... well, from whom it came the comment... I expect no much from them.
I lol'd at this. Self-humor is a great thing to have.
I yelled so loudly I broke my microphony. :P
WHat we are all failing to comprehend here is that literally speaking, they're right.How many of you got laid because of your online rage?Maybe they were just trying to be helpful, not facetious.Maybe....Maybe.
That was pretty funny. I don't know if that was the main idea, but I think it was funnyProtip: A LOT of bronies DO have girlfriends
How did I miss that?!
aldult swim:classy trollsc'mon guys,its a joke
And the stone has been thrown. WAR TO ADULT SWIM!!!!!!
Want to hear a good joke?Adult Swim.
@RellikaiGodlike comment is godlike.
I think it's just a network jealous that they're loosing their age group to a show meant for a younger audience. Poor adult swim, keep trying to remain relevant.
We should care why, exactly?Of course, channels that are loaded with stupid, dirty shows are going to rip on ponies.I don't feel the slightest bit annoyed or upset, because they're just so easy to ignore.
Wow, that's all they could come up with? I was expecting something actually witty, not a line a 12 year-old on Xbox Live would say.
Getting laid? Been there, done that. I can safely say ponies is better.
Eh. This isn't that bad. The college humor thing was worse. That video was clearly mean spirited.This one just sounds like it's poking fun. I actually lol'd
"Protip: Adult Swim hasn't been funny since 2007" Hasn't been relevant since then either. Only thing on Adult Swim worth watching is Robot Chicken and i don't watch it on TV, I have the interwebs for that so yeah, they can continue to not get my ratings count. Suckit Cartoon Network!
Who said anything about getting laid? If those guys automatically think about this, then they are obviously the one with sex problems.
Guys, we're missing the point. Bronyland would be an amazing theme park. Like 6 flags but without the vomit XD
I only watch adult swim for king of the hillc'mon guys.there just playinhow else would they know about the derpy madness without being ibterested in mlp
@XeddriefTohohoho, dat slaps me in the knee.
Attacking an internet fandom won't get you laid either.
wait wait wait....Adult swim is relevant?
Every network wants a piece of the pony action.
They're just jealous that Adult Swim sucks. They only show one half of a block of Aqua Teen. They no longer have anime. And they no longer have Superjail.
ponies can't get you laid?nor can airing shit like tim and eric
Since when do we care about getting laid? We have ponies to watch!
I agree with the people who say this one is lame.Protip: Make the punchline more relevant to the rest of the joke.
I'm pretty sure watching [Adult Swim] gives you lesser chances of getting laid.
Just out of interest, did any of us ever think that debating Derpy would directly lead to us getting laid?No? Then what does that blurb thing have to do with anything?
I'm disappointed. Not because of the insult, but because the lack of originality and effort put into the insult. Then again lack of originality and effort seems to be the norm when it comes to Adult Swim programming."lol virgins" is the best they could come up with? Don Rickles would be ashamed.
Of course they're right. Shouting in the Internet won't help. The best thing we can do to get laid is watch Adult Swim! That's just brilliant! Why I am so stupid!
does everything have to be about getting laid? seriously?being obsessed with sex seems pretty immature.
@KranbeStop doing anything recreational. You could use that free time to work more and making more money.See how helpful that was?
I've been happily married for years. So, technically, they're right :P
WHAT IS THIS 'LAID' PEOPLE KEEP TALKING ABOUT?
Oh c'mon! [as] is hilarious and that was choice! so what they trolled us a bit...umadbro? I thought it fit their humor great and it looks like we have invaded their show! I say /brohoof to [as] and thanks for having our backs!
So much butthurt c'mon its just a joke and a pretty funny one at that.
I saw this while watching Robot Chicken. Didnt really offend me, im used to getting shit for being a brony.
lol everypony's so mad. i like the adult swim bumps, & i thought this one was funny too. i don't like the name derpy hooves, but i'm not about to get with somepony raging over it. calm ya neck, at least the show is acknowledging it's growing peripheral demographic
Awwww, that's adorable. They still think rational people care about Adult Swim anymore. So precious. =P
I am not going to watch adult swim anymore, I barely watched before but NEVER again now.
@TiXoLSome of us are even married with children...This is just the next step in us becoming mainstream, laugh at the AS ignorance, remember that Seth Green is one of us, and Brony On.
@wackyponySigmund Freud says yes.
@SirLadetteWell said!"Attacking an internet fandom won't get you laid either."Heh, talk about calling the kettle black (I mean Adult Swim).
Why is everyone raging? Not only is it funny, but it's also true. And I don't even watch adult swim.
@Kit Triforce Did Seth Green say he was a brony?
Aw. That's cute.
there are bronies in Adult Swim. This is just a joke, take it easy people
I perosnally think it's a little funny. Just a little. But I mean come on, that joke is old! How long has one been around?
Protip: We are not yelling, we are complaining.THIS IS YELLING! NYAH, IT'S NOT FAIR! BWWAAGGH!
I do think we need to stop getting so butthurt everytime someone cracks a joke at our expense. Lighten up, fellas.
The only part of Adult Swim that I give as little as two shits about is King of the Hill. Fuck everything else with a huge spike.
I dunno... I watched Adult Swim all through my freshman year before it finally dawned on me that I wasn't having any fun watching their drivel... and I didn't get laid at all that year.Methinks those who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones...And for the record they're a bit late on the draw. As far as I can tell the Derpy thing is generally over, ever since Amy Keating Rogers came forward.
Funny thing is I met my current girlfriend through this show! (-:
@Tin CanAgh! Make the noises stop!
@ChromosomeI didn't know arguing about something wasn't going to get you laid. In that case, anytime spent complaining about anything is a waste of time when you could be getting laid! Wow lol.
Okay, that garnered a small chuckle out of me.
Ill admit i giggled after reading it. laughed out loud when i saw king of the hill come on after the screen faded in.
Like anyone watching adultswim is some how getting laid more often that we are.
Really I didn't see anything negative about it, besides the getting laid part. And I'm not in this to get laid anyway so that didn't really bother me.
I don't always yell at the internet about ponies,but when I do, I get laid.
who can think about sex when derpy is in trouble!? lol wvr it was funny. i like adult swim.
If anything they just incorporated more people to find out1. Who Derpy is2. What Bronies areWhich will just make more Bronies. :I *never watched Adult Swim, must be an American channel :b)
'Protip: Yelling on a TV show about fans yelling about a pony show will not get you laid'Oh, adaptive, petty insults that can be applied to pretty much anything they're combined with, what would the vast majority of arguments on the Internet be without you?At any rate, acknowledgement of the brony community is always a good thing, whenever good or bad.
Of course, had MLP been shown on [AS], how much you want to bet then they would have gone to bat for the Bronies?As usual, it's all about the money.
All hell is breaking loose in Adult Swim landMale fans of My Little Pony have lit up the production staffWith all their awesome shout outs towards broniesBeing just lame sex jokes.Pro Tip: When you have such awesome fodder about people wanting a mentally challenged pony, don't just end it with a horrible punch line.[Equestria Daily]
For the record, I like Adult Swim. It's the only watchable part of the Cartoon Network these days. I watch a bunch of their shows, and I enjoy a lot of their between-show bumps. Once again, mountains are being made of molehills, and it's not making us look good. Sure, the statement is negative, but look at it this way: is anyone ACTUALLY causing arguments on the internet with the expressed intent of getting laid? No, they are not. There is no way that would actually work. Just relax, and don't fall for such an easy pitfall. I know we're better than this.
Adultswim are a bunch of no good levantines.
While true, that bemoaning the change to Derpy did not get me laid, I still got laid.
ProTip: I met my boyfriend through the Brony community. Your argument is irrelevant.
No one has mentioned The Venture Brothers yet? "IGNORE ME""Ohhhh... Tiger *bomb!""Do not be too hasty in entering that room. I had Taco Bell for lunch!"
Perhaps the biggest question of all......Which King of the Hill episode was that?
For the record I love insult comedy when it's clever. When it's not clever it just comes across as sad and immature.Adult Swim needs better writers, most of their material is either a sex comment or a joke that hasn't been funny since the late 90's.There are much better ways to get at bronies than by implying that we're all virgins.
@autobotgodzillaThis doesn't look like butthurt; it looks like a reaffirmation of what I realized years ago when I stopped watching so late: [as] is a juvenile program with barely any good shows. Their own personal bumpers were the most obnoxious of them too. Not so glad to see they haven't changed.
PS: We made Venture brothers and Superjail. Nothing of value has ever passed through our walls.Also we are douches and have no ability to schedule a decent block of programming.Yours truly: eat a weiner.
^That should read nothing ELSE of value--
Jeeze so much butthurt in the comments. I'm not surprised at seeing the fandom throw spite at a tv station that was only poking fun at us. I'm starting to get the feeling Bronies are turning more bitter, especially after the whole Derpy debacle. A shame really.Also insulting [as] is just as bad as them insulting us, which they really weren't trying to do. They spoke the truth about the ridiculous fandom outlash regarding Derpy. :/
I thought it was going to be bad at first because seth indicated that it was "negative". It's not really terrible but that kind of statement can be said about anything argued on the internet.
I guess adult swim is mad that a fan character we care about and help create was being shelved, so we took action.In what way does that have to do with trying to get laid? It just doesn't seem that funny to me because it's not even within the context. Frankly I don't like adult swim to begin with, but be more original than 7 year olds on Call of Duty guys.
@Tricia Cthen you talking shit about commentors is even worse. You're a horrible person and I hate you.:P
Adult Swim is just jelly cause they're original programming can't stack up to ponies.Seriously, has anyone else realized that their original programming is crap that makes Ren and Stimpy look classy.
Lame joke. But yeah, i do think the Derpy drama made this fandom look insane to the outside world. I still can't get over the people who were comparing the Derpy edit to the holocaust.
Adult Swim just did the most successful troll attempt ever, based on the reactions shown in a lot of the comments here.
Pro tip: neither does watching Adult Swim.Eh, I'm pretty sure it's all meant in good fun, though.
Maybe AS should be focused on creating new content that actually appeal to our demographic, instead of questioning our sexuality; as it stands, their current lineup can't even compete with normal Cartoon Network's prime time shows.
lulz [AS] Lulz.
I hate to say I told you all but...
EQC hmmmm one letter from EQD Equestria Daily! I c what they did there
Those guys suck SO HARD...
No matter what anyone says, the simple fact of the matter was that they aired 100% truth. Hell broke loose in Brony Land, Derpy does sound less "mentally challenged now," and arguing about ponies on the Internet will not, in fact, get you laid....and if it does, it really, REALLY shouldn't.But yeah, like someone else mentioned, this jab at bronies was actually a lot classier overall. Short, to the point, only one real negative comment. It would not be surprising that a fan of the show was actually behind those bumps (an element of Adult Swim I've almost always enjoyed anyways).Don't suddenly start ripping them a new one just because they made one not-untrue passing jape. They may have been dropping in program quality here and there, but they've always been at the forefront of experimentation in mature animation. Seriously bronies, don't hate. Tolerate (or love, in my case...Adult Swim mentioned ponies! Huzzah!).
My own Adult Swim bumper:Our Channel hasn't been funny or original for years.All we do is show the same dumb Family Guy, King of the Hill, and American Dad episode over and over again.WE SUCK! [Adult Swim]Ha! take that Adult Swim!
@KiGodwin's law, with a healthy portion of hyperbole.Happens with everything from politics to sports to cartoons about candy colored horses.
Ehh..I tried to laugh at the humor, but this was just lame :/ the college humor video was more funny. And Ive gotten laid quite a bit In my life AS. Your argument is invalid.
So... making silly insults about as imaginative as the average internet troll... *does* get you laid?Man, ponies distracts me from so much knowledge I'd have otherwise!
This user has been removed by the comments.
Eh. I have pretty much stopped watching [as] at this point. I watch all of their anime, which means one episode of Bleach a week. Call me when they have something to replace FMA and Durarara.
well, this one's actually pretty funny in my opinion. I believe, however, that we can all agree that at least it's better than the video collegehumor made about us.
Haaaaa! They do have an image to maintain but that's the beauty of it. Non-bronies think it's a jab at the bronies, but if it was really all that pointless, they wouldn't have even brought it up because it wouldn't be worth "researching." That is unless, they didn't have to go looking for said information. There's definitely a brony or two over at adult swim.
Not funny. Period. Move on.
Protip: Making fun of an internet community won't get you laid either.-Sean Wee
Impressive [AS], very impressive indeed. Not only are you unoriginal, late, and irrelevant... But you don't have much going for you either. Family Guy? new episode on FOX first. Bleach? 50 episodes behind. Full Metal Alchemist and every other anime? Reruns. The lot of em. Everything else isn't worth watching really. Maybe king of the hill for some, but again, all reruns, and robot chicken, but that's really person to person.Ah well, not worth getting annoyed about, not getting "laid" is a lot better than being an out-of-date channel. Besides, I'm 17, I have better problems to worry about. Now C'mon Adult Swim, really do better next time, 'kay?
I thought that was really funny... Personally I know that our fandom is kinda weird. And its not like they attacked us. Seriously, talking about Derpy will not get you laid.
Lol. Just lol. That's awesome. Seriously guys the good fandoms are the ones who can take a little bit of banter.just come back at them and make something witty about [AS]
seriously though if you guys can't laugh at yourselves for the absolutely ludicrous amounts of hyperbole that was being thrown around, then you're a lost cause.
I still like Adult Swim and can't wait for more Venture Bros.! Plus, we'll probably watch pony re-runs there 5 years down the road.
Soon, more legendary franchise will become more Bronies than ever before!!!!Ponies will invade 2012!!!! ^_^
They keep trying to insulte but its just funny. I bet someone had to research that
Oh adult swim, you old troll you! Gotta love and tolerate you though.(You make it easy by showing good tv shows)
Yeah adultswim! We are TOTALLY complaining about the derpy change because we want to get laid! ...what the hell... im gonna quote a much fabulous pony and say: "That doesn't even make any sence"
I got to say that joke was pretty lame and had the same thing they always mention in their shows unfunny jokes involving sex, main reason I choose to not watch most comedy shows.
Wow, seriously? I met my GIRLFRIEND through ponies. ><
I'm trying hard to see where these poster who found this funny are coming from.Then again if Dane Cook can sell out shows and Seltzer and Friedberg can continue making spoof movies I guess I can understand why people might find Adult Swim parroting jokes from 5 years ago amusing.I'll pray to Saint Carlin for your souls.
Hey, King of The Hill is what got me into this fandom. Also, diving around in KoTH message threads paid off, in this aspect.
Fun fact: At my uni I founded an MLP Society, which now has 53 members. 15 of them are girls. I met my current girlfriend through this.So, Ponies HAVE gotten me laid. Not only is their joke juvenile and unoriginal, it is also false :)
I had a fiance who I was with for 4 years. I used to sing for a metal band. Getting laid doesn't mean absolutely anything. But sure, lets play into the idea that women are only there to conquer and be belt notches right? AS sucks.
Playing hand-me-down shows and creating content for the lowest common denominator really hurts my respect for [AS]. Sorry [AS] but if you want my attention your going to have to step it up. Ponies are doing a better job at making me laugh than you've done in years.
Lol. I haven't watched Adult Swim since like 6 years ago.
Not all of us are male. Also Adult Swim used to have PeeWee's playhouse on for adult fans who fondly remembered the show. That won't get you laid either.
I consider getting laid to be overrated.
@SajinZero The one where the town got flooded and everyone went to Landry Middle School.Oh, was that meant to be answered?
LolI love [AS] and they're right too. I've had enough of this derpy nonsense.
ITT: [AS] tries to stay on top of pop culture by making fun of its target audience, bronies lol and/or get butthurt for 5 seconds, brony community gets more attention. I think this is a win for us.For the record, I thought it was funny.
Actually, I have a girlfriend.She is a Pegasister.ProTip: Adult Swim is run by fatass pricks with nothing to do all day but sit on their asses behind a screen creating worthless 15min low-budget shows.
Hmmm, I first heard the term "Bronies" on one of Adult Swim's bumpers (probably during King of the Hill, don't remember). Which led to me finding out about MLP:FiM and watching it, which in turn led to two more brony friends of mine. So, thanks, Adult Swim! Looks like their mockery backfires sometimes.
"lololol u no get sex lol"They couldn't come up with anything better?2/10
People are actually taking a small bump like this as serious business..........-_- REALLY?!You know were not the 1st group of people they've mentioned like this. Besides the laid thing it really isnt THAT bad. So they stumbled upon the derpy thing and made a bad joke. Who cares. Whats white text gonna do?
@SirLadetteDoesn't make it any less sad.
Learn to take a joke guys.
Won't lie, that was pretty funny actually. Even though I didn't approve of the language.
I actually find it funny that when people talk shit we're all supposed to laugh and laugh and if we don't we're somehow "not taking a joke well." Fuck that nonsense.It was a stupid statement and deserves to be branded as such.
@Ikusa GTI know right. Many people don't realize how many of these harsh bumps are actually created. Thats the way they mention things. And it could be worse. It could be an animation like the furry one they did for a bump. This is just text over a black screen.
Hey, it's true.
WELL IT WONT! :D
This is just what Adult Swim does. It's not something to be bothered by. I doubt that many people take their word at face value anyway. The ones that do were probably trolls or to-be trolls. I think we've all seen that the anti-brony population generally isn't the most intelligent (as most anti-x's are).I do have to say that [AS] has been on a downward slope for years with their content and popularity. This is their attempt to draw attention. Oh, and for the record, I'm engaged.
Wait, thats real?Hahahahaha
I'm not looking forward to this. Let's see it......Okay, better than expected. Good advice too. I'm not sure why everyone's freaking out about Derpy. ...The freak out is over, right? Please be over! It should be over!
I laughed my ass off when I read this. The complainers seriously need a thicker skin about themselves.
"ProTip: yelling on the internet about pony shows will not get you laid"I liked it. And some people posting here are right: it sure won't.
Lol well that's true. Bitching about ANYTHING isn't likely to get anyone laid. Kind of an unoriginal joke, but hey, I'm not offended. Just smirk, shake your head, and move on guys. This isn't that bad of an insult.
Does doing anything on the internet get you laid?
I would like to add though that the Derpy thing was pretty horribly handled by most. ...Actually... hasn't [AS] *promoted* FIM before? It's hard to tell if they're ever serious about anything.
@RellikaiAwesome comment is awesome :3As for the actual bump itself: haters gonna hate.
@KingzeroSuccessful internet dating/matching sites? :P (If you believe those work)
@Beta-Carotene Everything is on a downslope. And hate to say it, but bronies are only contributing to everything dieng out.
@TengenFlare I've been saying "learn to take a joke" since the Redeye piece on BronyCon I've been saying learn to take a joke since similar instances before that. I've been saying to learn satire ever since the RedEye piece on Bronies last June!Seriously it's not like this is a major infringement as you as a person. There's no need to get all defensive when people resort to the archaic "x doesn't get you laid smack."Quite frankly the whole Derpy Business is Something that got blown WAY out of proportion on both sides and I just want to move on and never wish to see something like that debacle ever again.But honestly I see nothing here to get that upset about from what I'm seeing in the comments.
Yelling on the internet about pony shows will not get you laid.Sitting behind your desk at work will not get you laid.Going to 7/11 for milk will not get you laid.I can take a joke, but that's not even a situation specific joke. It's just "Hurr durr these guys can't get laid, amirite?" *nudge nudge* ...with added pony.
Sitting on your ass and watching Adult Swim won't exactly get you laid either.
Very original joke.....nah, its not.
@Nothing Else To Do.Na, there's plenty of upward slopes, but nobody ever comments on those. They're not interesting.Bad news sells.
Since the first Fox News Red Eye thing I've yet to see more smart comedy on this topic (on us if you prefer.)This falls pretty much in line with the unoriginal, cliche and overdone things from then until now.There are some great American comedians but none of them apparently work at these TV Stations or webshorts companies. Such a shame.
@Beta-Carotene[AS] Doesn't promote anything If it contains an element that is easy to offend. It has to have explosions, guns, cars, etc. and it's actually somewhat rational.
I chuckled at this.If you stop and think about it, this isn't even a jab at bronies - it's a jab at the Derpy panic, wich you actually have to admit was pretty ridiculous at times.For all we know, maybe a brony wrote this blurb. As other commenters above me has proven, bronyism can very well get you laid. It's the shouting that is a turn-off.
Not all of us are complaining about Derpy though... and she isn't mentally challenged. -.-;
@Ikusa GTya. I think the implecation is just:"Its pointless. Move on." The laid thing is just them messing with people. Not something to be taken seriously. "People complaining about a bumb won't get laid either." There 's the flaw in the counter argument.
It's Adult Swim the're a bunch of shut-in trolls.
Also, stop trying to defend the community. It wasn't directed towards bronies, but [AS] audience. They will laugh, not the community, obviously. But trying to make Witt comebacks to people who will never see them makes us look like a bunch of butthurts.
lol that was pretty good and true.
Not meaning to be redundant, butPROTIP: Not implying we think it would.So [AS]...your point?
@Nothing Else To Do.Butthurt is the brony nation past time bro.
"Protip: Yelling about ponies on the Internet will not get you laid."Another Protip: complaining about people on the Internet will not get you laid.
lol. Meanspirited, but I still chuckled.Adult Swim? Like, people still watch AS? I haven't even thought about Adult Swim in forever.
These comments make me sad.95% of you are proving the stereotype that all bronies get buttflustered the moment someone insults the fandom correct.Stop it.
Can we have a moratorium on the word 'butthurt' in this comment section? The worst anyone is saying is that it wasn't funny. That's not butthurt.
And last thing, the whole PROTIP: _______ won't get you laid, thing is pathetic, honestly. It's very irrational, as bronies/ponies have different values in society than any of the things you guys are naming.
It was... very unoriginal. I mean, does it have to be always: You virgin/you loser. Couldn't go with, I don't know, a furry flavor/otherkin joke for a change (mind you, this are also old (and I like furry works, specially Magolobo), but at least it's this decade old). I don't know, I expected more for adult swim or maybe I missremembered as witty for looking at them at 2 am while a was passing from my existential crisis and shit.
Funny part is they would not hesitate for a second to put MLP on their network if they could, or the have as much of a fan base for anything they have on now. Can't help but think they are a bit jelly and it's showing it. so yeah I found this funny but not for the reasons they put it up for.
"ProTip: yelling on the internet about pony shows will not get you laid"I beg to differ...
Look at all the sour grapes here.That's right, give them exactly the reaction they want. They'll eat it up.They're right, you know... you guys really are snotty, asshole losers.
@OmniLionheartRemeber love and tolerance!
PROTIP: neither will watching adult swim
@Julius ScipioActually they have one really good show on sunday mary frankstein something i would recommend DLing that.
