Totally inspired because I just watched some Patrice O'Neal and The Roast of Roseanne.
Anyway, I'm sure that there are some comedian ponies in Equestria, right? They have just about everything else. I mean, if someone can have the talent of farting hearts out of their horn, there's gotta be a pony who does stand up. I don't mean Pinkie, either. Her element may be laughter, but she's never doing stand up nor is she famous for being a comedian, only a party planner.
FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO DON'T KNOW WHAT A ROAST IS:
Just kidding. "A roast is an event, almost exclusively in the United States, in which an individual is subjected to a public presentation of comedic insults, praise, outlandish true and untrue stories, and heartwarming tributes, the implication being that the roastee is able to take the jokes in good humor and not as serious criticism or insult, and therefore, show their good nature.
It is seen by some as a great honor to be roasted, as the individual is surrounded by friends, fans, and well-wishers, who can receive some of the same treatment as well during the course of the evening. The party and presentation itself are both referred to as a roast. The host of the event is called the "roastmaster". Anyone who is honored in such a way is said to have been "roasted"."
❤ Comedian ponies
❤ Jokes that may be told
❤ Roasting ponies and no, I don't mean actually firing up a grill and cooking them.
❤ If you were a pony comedian, which pony would you roast?
❤ Ponies that would be good sports and allow themselves to be roasted
You know, a lot of ponies ask me if I ever get too tired or worn out from ruling over all of Equestria. But, whenever I feel a little beaten down at the end of a busy day, I like to do things that bring a tear of joy to my eye; Having a nice, hot cup of tea, writing to my favorite student, watching the birds take many shits on Discord in the courtyard. emotion_dowant
-Looks over at Discord.- Oh, come on, loosen up? Why so sti-- Oh wait, that's right.
Roasts are pretty terrible in general...especially now. Most of the comedians don't even know the roastee personally, and the ones that do aren't funny...not to mention there hasn't been anyone roasted in the past several years where I've been like "man, I want to see that." Probably the last one I saw was Hugh Heffner's.
As for relating it to ponies, Fluttershy should never be roasted, since she wouldn't be able to handle it, and Spike should be all the time roastmaster...that's all I have to say.
