DoD Announces Support For 'Military Bronies'
ARLINGTON, VA - The Department of Defense announced their support and "magical friendship" with Military Bronies, in a press conference yesterday.
Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta spoke to members of the media along with over twenty grown men in the audience who he said "had a really creepy love affair with 'My Little Pony' -- not that there's anything wrong with that."
The "bronies" are fans of the My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic television show, an animated series that follows a unicorn pony named Twilight Sparkle. Most of the show's fan base is made up of young girls.
"While it may seem contradictory for those men you expect to have a killer instinct to enjoy My Little Pony, I do not believe so and I applaud the members of the Military Bronies for their bravery and sacrifice," said Panetta. "With the recent repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell, we can't expect any less from our military than to accept each and every service member, regardless of what fucked up stuff they're into."
