• Nightly Roundup #645


    I was looking through my dA for a header and saw this pic of Silver Spoon. Since I can not remember the last time she had a header, if ever for that matter, let's give her a little time in the spotlight. She is pretty cute when she isn't being insufferable.

    Time for some news guys, check it after the break.

    Ted & Wally's Derpy Hooves Ice Cream - Followup


    Well guys, I'd say the flavor was a success when the manager puts a message like this up on the bulletin board! In case it is hard to read for some of you the message says: ""Please make Derpy Hooves Saturday. Probably stock all week due to broney [sic] demand. Thanks -Joe"


    No cake tonight, but this certainly makes up for it, right?
