Indulge me in a little bit of holiday silliness for this bonus comic. We'll be back to your regularly scheduled screencaps momentarily.

You see, today is Father's Day. And my dad runs a webcomic of his own called Quacked Panes. It's formatted exactly as today's page, except with better photography and a wide, eccentric cast of rubber ducks being clever, sarcastic, and punny.

Unfortunately, it's not a moderately popular webcomic, even though it's been updating twice a week for about three years now. So I humbly request of you: Give his webcomic a visit, read a few pages, surprise him with a sudden influx of site traffic.

Of course, this isn't the only part of my Father's Day plans. (It'd be a rather sad gesture if all I had was this.) I've also sent him a little Father's Day card - courtesy of one of the brony artists who contacted me this past Tuesday - along with some words of appreciation.

Hopefully, between all of this, I'll be able to make up for past Father's Days where all he got was a friendly phone call.

Really? A non sequitur comment that hasn't even the slightest tangential connection to anything in the comic or what I said in the Author's Note?

Wgat do you expect from a guy who only occasionally looks at the site who's just realised that A) he's the first person to notice ( or comment, for that matter,) , and B) the cats just just decided to use his character sheet as an exercise in being horribly sick.'

Trust No one indeed.

Also, the duck comics are brilliant.

You forgot "sI"

Also a good Matoya's spell shouldn't be so obvious.

What are you talking about?


I'm referring to the subliminal messages broadcast to Green areas of the complex.

That comic is positively quackers.

(In b4 duck puns)

Also, someone should ponify the ducks.

One silliness, coming right up!

Father's day was a lot of fun for me with my dead. We went to a for-the-heck-of-it hockey tournament and the sun was shining BRILLIANTLY.

But no day in the sun is complete without my dad doing something silly... Like running out on the field, taking someone's hockey stick and SCORING... In the wrong goal. I think both teams were too shocked to respond.

Didn't stop laughing till we got home.

I let him stay in bed all day, eating his chocolate and watching his brand new 70 inch LED screen.


I cleaned out the gutters, mowed the lawn and dusted his collection of vintage hats.

You know Jimmy's dad (Hugh Neutron) loved ducks...

Oh wait, I have the McDonalds Cheerilee too, but its hanging from my rearview mirror so I don't count it as a toy.

I just have the McDonalds Rarity on display by my computer desk. In contrast, my daughter has about 16 pony toys, along with three vehicles and a bunch of other brushes and accessories.
We could build our own Ponyville.

I have a Pinkie Pie McDonald's toy on my desk, she's my go-to girl when I need to figure something out. She is extraordinarily good at helping me find plot holes via the Rubber Duck method. I have most of the others, but sadly, no Cherilee, Fluttershy, or Rainbow Dash.

I also owned a Bright Eyes when I was a kid. Pretty sure it's tucked away in a box somewhere.

A drawring done in pencil. Does that count?

Today was a gestalt celebration for us. Three Birthdays all around the same time. I had a steak. It was delicious.

I would have made some cards for people using blender, but I'm only just starting on it myself.

Seems we have a new webpage icon for our tabs and bookmarks as well!

That duck thing is pretty adorable.

If photographing tiny toys weren't so tricky... and my pony collection only including Rainbow Dash and Diamond Rose... I'd love to attempt a photo-toys comic.

Okay so at first I was all like "wait how could your pony comic possibly be a good gift for your father of all people" and then you mentioned he has a webcomic and it all makes perfect sense.
