The ol' Macaroni.

My thought process: The show goes with the Hokey Pokey, a participation song so common that every child has or will have heard it at some point in their life. Therefore, the best adaptation (and the one that makes my job easier) of this scene is to pick another participation song so common that most of my audience will have weird nostalgia for it. Thus my brain landed on butchering the chorus of Macarena.

Also, what is this now, four? Four poems and songs I've done for tabletop-style Pinkie Pie? "Glib at the Ghosties," "Evil Enchantress (sonnet style)," "Better Party Bard," and now this?

Notice: Guest comic submissions are open! Guidelines here. Deadline: January 27th, 2023.

Heeeeey, Raritina!

Seriously, Spud, I'm pretty sure you earned a level in bard after this one.

Screw just one Bard level, that deserves more like 3 or 4!

XP levels go up exponentially
So yeah just one level

Well played, Spud

Only 4 songs, over all these scripts, though?

But yeah, at least one level. Which weapon proficiency are you using? And which cantrips?

Now we wait for Blueblood (and his obviously... stunned? Horrified? face) to call in his personal hired goons to come in and start causing a ruckus.

That or he laughs it off, not connecting the bright florescent dots.

See, it's pages like this that make me so disappointed in our D&D party's bard. She doesn't try to apply song lyrics to this effect (parody or otherwise), she doesn't write any stories or songs to help our party's PR rating (We killed several high profile monsters and most towns still don't know about that!), and in combat she prefers to go fight in the front lines melee instead of utilizing all those juicy support powers and spells (well, she uses bardic song, but that's it).

How much to hire Pinkie for our group?
Mykin 28th Sep 2017, 6:49 AM edit delete reply
... Are you sure she's a Bard? Because she sounds more like a fighter to me.
Digo Dragon 28th Sep 2017, 7:31 AM edit delete reply

Her current build right now is Bard 4/Cleric 4. Oh, did I mention she doesn't want to take the job of primary healer? The Druid is our primary healer.

A cleric who don't heal, and a bard that doesn't sing.
Are you sure she's not a shapeshifter that is used to being a warrior?
Wulfraed 29th Sep 2017, 7:30 AM edit delete reply
She's beginning to sound like a parasite...

Wanting the benefits of Bard/Cleric, without accepting the responsibilities to aid others.

Bards are designed to melee, and not necessarily to sing (although it's a good one to pick for bardic music if you want to melee since it doesn't take up your hands). In 3.5 I uaed a longspear so that I could fight from behind the people with more hit points. n.n

That character was before FIM but she was basically Pinkie Pie.

In 5e I was the party healer but I had the best AC of anyone (because everyone else was dual-wielding or otherwise focusing on damage)... they wouldn't let me tank, though.

That character wasn't a singing bard. He was a veteran who encouraged people by swearing at them, and during a short rest he'd tell old war stories to give everyone temp hit points.

The Bard can melee, if you focus your build on being good at a certain style of fighting. Our bard didn't. She's very hodge-podge in her design, better suited for a fighter/cleric build than bard/cleric.

How appropriate that the canonical Pinkie Pie dabbles in Spanish/Latin American culture (or the Equestrian equivalent).

"Better Party Bard"? Wait, I don't remember that one! Which arc did it show up in?
Newbiespud 28th Sep 2017, 7:49 AM edit delete reply
What's known as the Cheese Sandwich sonnet.

Who hear has failed at being subtle in game?

Ah, the fun of being a bard...I frequently broke out into song in-game. Probably drove me friends crazy.
Winged Cat 28th Sep 2017, 9:58 AM edit delete reply
Winged Cat
I've done that without being a bard. Maybe not that frequently, but when it made sense - especially in campaign 'verses where characters normally broke out in verse.

hokey pokey? I thought for sure that was supposed to be the macarena song XD
Needling Haystacks 28th Sep 2017, 9:14 AM edit delete reply
It is. In the original episode it was the Hokey Pokey.

About all I can manage is the Al Gore version of the Macarena, myself.

I heard the song back in the day, but thought it was a stupid dance, and never bothered to really learn it.

Who else sang along?

Are you counting silent singalongs in one's head because one read the comic in a place where making a sound would have been a problem?
Guest 28th Sep 2017, 7:16 PM edit delete reply
Just because.

Macgyver644200 28th Sep 2017, 7:52 PM edit delete reply
I didn't recognize the song at first, so I made up my own melody loosely based on the last thing going through my head (Dentist, from Little Shop of Horrors). Then I read the title, got the joke, and now I have to go find the original.

You did good, Pinkie
