My Little Pony newspaper mistake mentioned on NPR


-Thank you so much. In just a minute, Carl predicts the Giants
win and a strong game by quarterback “Eri Mamanning.” -Oh! -It’s a Listen to a Limerick challenge coming
up. If you’d like to play, give us a call at 1-888-WAIT-WAIT. That’s 1-888-9248-924. Right now, panel, we’re gonna play a new game, one we’re calling “Oops! I Did it Again!” -Every day, the few remaining newspapers in
the countries make mistake and then, because they’re serious, they correct them. Faith, we’re gonna read you three recent corrections. Pick the real one and you get a point. The New York Times had to issue a correction after mixing up which of these: -Bill Pullman and Bill Paxton. Or, the My Little Ponies, Fluttershy and Twilight
Sparkle. Or, Hillary Clinton and Suzie Orman. -Oh, boy! I can see the last one, ’cause we’re talking
pantsuits on both. Um… Pullman and Paxman? -Pullman/Paxton, Paxton/Pullman. -Paxton, yeah, I would mix those up too. Um, and the My Little Pony– you’ve got me
there. I’m gonna go with Pullman/Paxton. -No, it was actually the My Little Ponies. Let me quote the correction: “An article on Monday misidentified a character from the animated children’s TV show, My Little
Pony. It is Twilight Sparkle, the nerdy intellectual, not Fluttershy, the kind animal lover.” -The Times regrets the error. -Fluttershy is a suer, too. She would’ve sued
them. -I know. Very litigious pony. -My Litigious Pony. -There’s a show. -For the young lawyer in training. -For a lot of kids sitting around, ton of tiny kids sitting around their TV in
three-piece suits with briefcases.

  1. @Smeagolthevile Yep. "Oh no, somebody who doesn't watch My Little Pony made a joke that is not accurate"
    I, for one, eagerly await all attorney Fluttershy fanworks.

  2. @cyber952 Angel is her attorney. That's how she owns that fabulous cottage. Being an animal caretaker / groomer isn't very lucrative.

    (Gilda lost her home in the settlement. That's how good Angel is.)
