Hundreds of Bronies-- teenage and adult men who are fans of the animated TV series, "My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic" -- which you might know from the greatest New York Times correction ever--crammed into the Hotel Pennsylvania in midtown on Saturday for the 2012 Winter BronyCon.
According to Kase Wickman, there were chants of "P-O-N-I-E-S! What does that spell? Ponies!" and NeighSlayer, "Ponyville’s Hottest Metal Band!" was scheduled to play. There were academic panels, fan art and MLP vendors. Pegasisters (female bronies) were part of the fun too.
Time To Play magazine was on hand to interview the excited Bronies, many of whom were in costume. When asked why BronyCon has grown in popularity, a man dressed up as Big Macintosh (Applejack's big brother) responds, "I think it's mostly because the show breeds friendship and happiness. It's something that hasn't been on television very long. It teaches good life lessons and it's something people like to get behind."
