"I'm so sorry I lost track of time at our picnic."
The bunny, the bear, and the maiden fair!
Oh, it was just Rainbow Dash!
Rainbow, did you forget what Pinkie told you about pranking Fluttershy? Well, this is the result.
Harry is not happy, either.
"You're scared of everything."
"I mean, how could you not appreciate that?"
"Because I don't think being scared is very fun!"
"Your heart gets all racy..."
"...your hooves get all tingly..."
Pinkie Pie's impression of Granny Smith.
"Actually, I don't like that part."
"Now, Rainbow Dash, I don't think Fluttershy would have called us all here to talk about this if she thought it was funny."
"Everypony has things they like and things they don't."
"And scarin' Fluttershy is just..."
"A prank isn't very good if you're the only pony laughing."
"But what if it's really, really, really, really, really funny?"
"I know you can. I guess the trick is making sure that your idea of funny matches the pony you're pranking."
Wonder what Rainbow Dash is laughing at now.
Did somepony step on a duck?
How did that whoopee cushion get there in the first place?
"Good one, Rainbow! Ha-ha!"
"You have to admit! That was funny!"
"Yeah. A whoopee cushion is like a joke shortcut."
"Honestly, Rainbow Dash..."
"...if you are not willing to put forth the effort..."
"...required to pull a prank that everypony can enjoy..."
"...you may as well not pull one at all."
"Fine! If you ponies want effort..."
"...then that's just what you'll get."
There goes a pony who will start a prank war.
"I'm not sure she understood what we meant."
How did that get in here?
Sweetie taking a bite of the cake.
"Hmm. I assume this is Dash's idea of a prank..."
"...which can only mean she's rigged some kind of booby trap to your Filly Guide uniform up there."
"If Dash thinks I'm going to fall for whatever she's got in mind, she's got another thing coming!"
"There's more uniforms where that one came from!"
Her sewing machine is also made of cake! Clever!
Well, at least you're impressed.
"What's all this, Applejack? I thought you were gonna help me get ready for the Filly Guide Cookie Drive."
"Uh, yeah, sorry about that."
"But Rainbow Dash has been on a prankin' tear, and you can never be too careful."
"Do you really think Dash is gonna try and prank you in your sleep?"
"Not if I have anythin' to say about it."
"See ya in the mornin', sugarcube."
What? How did she get that out there?!
"Ha! Still think I'm lazy?"
Oh, this is about to get very ugly very fast....
Uh, Dash? Fluttershy is going to be peeved.
Why doesn't Spike just look up?
What is with this letter?
Ooh, Dashie's going to get a detention now!
"Pinkie! We need your help."
"Are you honestly going to stand there and tell us you know nothing about all the pranking Rainbow Dash has been doing?"
"Oh, no! She's been pranking up a storm!"
""Oh, yeah! She and Gummy both!"
"Well, she needs to stop."
"Stop? But pranks are so much fun!"
"Not for everypony."
You got me there.
"And it doesn't seem like Dash is taking the time to find out who enjoys them and who doesn't."
"Uh, since you and Dash share such an, uh, affinity for pranking..."
"...we thought you might be able to get her to, um, uh... "
For the sake of everypony.
"I have something very important to tell you!"
""I actually have something totally important to tell you!"
"You do? Ooh! You go first!"
"Okay, you know how I've been pranking everypony?"
"It's been pretty funny!"
"I-I-I mean, actually, that's what I have to talk to you about."
"So, I got to thinking: Why waste my time pranking everypony one at a time..."
"...when I could prank everypony at once?"
"Mmm, wow! Everypony at once?! That sounds amazing!"
"Gah, wait! I mean, it's not."
"You don't even know what it is yet!"
"Pinkie, this is gonna be the best prank ever!"
"I special ordered these joke cookies..."
"...so the colors would match my mane."
Ooooooh... Pinkie didn't see that one coming.
That's terrifying yet at the same time, kind of adorable.
Oh! Looks like Rainbow Dash is getting a taste of her own medicine!
"It was just a harmless prank! It was supposed to be funny! But this isn't funny at all!"
Exactly what we thought you would say!
"What? Wait... What's happening?"
"Just delighting in pranking the prankster."
"Yeah. How does it feel to get some of your own medicine?"
"So... you're... not sick?"
We fooled you good!
"Aw, shucks, it was nothing!"
"Just a little something I threw together."
"Wow! You should see your face"
Do you find that it's funny, Rainbow Dash?
"Well, I don't think it's very funny!"
"And I'm the one that got pranked!"
"I was really scared! I thought I made everypony sick!"
"You can't just go around—"
"—pranking whoever you feel like?"
"Without thinking about how it might make them feel?"
"Or if they'd even enjoy it?"
"Ohhh. I see what you did there."
"Pranks can be a lot of fun when everypony has a good time. I thought you just needed to see what it's like when they don't."
"Well, I hope you learned your lesson."
"You ponies pulled off an amazing prank!"
"I'll have to work extra hard to top it!"
Once again, this will get very ug—
Now there's a prank everypony can enjoy.
