We are driven

There’s a reference to “pony cars” in The Sparkle Chronicles, in the context of not wanting to explain the concept to a visiting pony. No big deal. Then there’s this seemingly unrelated bit from Somepony New:

“Seriously, Dashie,” Pinkie insisted. “He doesn’t sit like a pony, he doesn’t walk like a pony, and nopony has ever heard of him. Suppose he’s not a pony at all?”

Compare and contrast with the review of the 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0T R-Spec by Michael Karesh on the blog The Truth About Cars:

Yet it remains unclear what the Genesis Coupe wants to be when it grows up. Many reviews compare the car to a Mustang or a Camaro. But the Gen Coupe doesn’t look like a pony, sit like a pony, walk like a pony, or talk like a pony. It’s not a pony.

There’s no reason to think Mr Karesh actually read any part of Somepony New, but I have to admit to finding this hilarious.

    That is actually quite good. I wonder why Karesh would use those words in describing a car?

    I’m thinking he gets a little more freedom of expression with his TTAC reviews than he does as the head of the TrueDelta auto-reliability research outfit, and when you have that freedom, you tend to want to use it.

    But we may never know for sure.
