Please don't generalize us liberals like that. The people you are clearly satirizing were anarchists, not liberals.

Who cares who I was satirizing? It was a one-shot comic made by an idiot on the internet that nobody cares about. If conservative politics can be consistently mocked on every form of media, I think liberal politics can stand to have one or two jokes thrown their way on occasion as well.

I do love how these people somehow find "I'm offended" to be a reasonable argument for why someone should change how they act. Frankly, I'm offended that that previous asker claimed that the leftist riots that have been happening constantly for the last few years had nothing to do with the left, when you know that if a single right-wing riot happened during Obama's presidency we'd still be hearing about it.

I’m offended that a comic that was just supposed to be a one-shot joke and not totally derail or change the tone of this blog has, in fact, totally derailed and changed the tone of this blog all because of a few people overreacting…

…is what I would like to say. Except for the fact that I think this is my greatest unintentional prank ever!

anonymous asked:

Excuse me, I find that last comic to be very offensive. Can you please delete it?

No. It was funny. If you don’t find it funny, don’t worry. It was one stupid joke among a huge collection of other jokes on this blog that you’ll probably find much funnier.

I will, however, thank you for speaking so calmly about it. It’s always nice to see someone who can speak rationally about these things and still be collected and peaceful.

G’night, Folks

I stated a while back that this wasn’t a dead project, but I think we all know that was a lie. I haven’t had the time to devote to this thing in a year now and I won’t  any time soon. It’ll be about three to four years before I can touch this comic again and by then I’m sure I’ll have an entirely different idea about what do with it. If nothing else, it’ll have been far too long since the previous post and nobody will remember what was going on, so let’s just end the charade and say it’s over.

It was fun pretending this stupid thing had some kind of future, guys. Thanks for humoring me.

Matt: In the interest of fairness, I figured I’d go ahead and alter Vaudeville’s cutie mark so as to avoid strife and headache from people who take fan-characters way too seriously. Part of me misses the crisp, clean feeling of the stock vector I used, but another part of me likes that this one fits my art style better.

Vaudeville: A beloved character o’ yours has just been slightly altered! Ya know what dat means, kids! Fire up yer “Save Vaudeville” internet petitions! No one must rest until deviantART is littered with scads of depressing pictures o’ me sulking over my altered backside!

Matt: I’m going to break tradition here and answer this one myself.

Vaudeville didn’t start off as a pony. I cannot state this enough.

He’s an original character of my own design who I drew in pony form for the sake of a gag in Questions for Equestrians and he just turned out to be a great breakaway character. Considering that I only meant to use Pony Vaudeville in one panel, the design process can pretty much be summarized with a picture from your blog:

((Just so you know, I really respect this blog. I love it's classy humor and obscurely beautifully references to classic movies. I don't know if you take it seriously or not, but this blog is definitely my favorite in all of tumblr!))

Matt: I’m very happy that you enjoy Ask Vaudeville and thank you so much for telling me your thoughts on it. It was my goal to create something that could be funny to any group (even -gasp!- people who hate My Little Pony) and carry on the spirit of the classic comedians that I love so much as well as my grandfather who instilled that love of comedy in me. In that respect, I suppose I take it as seriously as one can take a zany piece of rogue fan art while still retaining some semblance of sanity.

Comedy is serious business, after all! But not that serious.
