New Yoker cartoon by KTurtle New Yoker cartoon by KTurtle
The cover of this week's "New Yoker" magazine features a cartoon by up-and-coming cartoonist K. Turtle, who joins such illustrious talents as Charles Saddlams, Roz Hest, Ed Korrallen, Mary Prettypony, Otto Saglow, and Saul Stallionberg. K. Turtle's comic makes light of Cloudsdale's repeated loss of hosting status for the annual Equestria Games.

Idea by U. Nmaned.

So wrong.

I like how true this is to the style of New Yorker cartoons. And the darkness of the humor.

Oh, it's not really dark. It'd be dark if there were a second panel showing the late Ms. Harshwhinny's tombstone. As it is, we can safely imagine that some vigilant pegasus is swooping down to catch her, or that she'll just make a cartoony pony-shaped hole in the ground and climb out of it going "ugh".

Maybe non-pegasi would have problem with the altitude, like the Olympics in México 68 (altitude: 2240m)...

Heh... I had a very similar thought when watching the episode.

Cloudsdale hosting the Equestrian Games. So what do the non-Pegasus Ponies compete in? The "500 Meter Plummet Through the Clouds to Your Doom" race?

They really need to work on their visitor service.

Also, this explains why the earth pony and unicorn contenders in the Equestria Games won't compete in Cloudsdale as well.

Oh man, this is exactly what I was thinking while watching the Episode: "What about all the unicorn- and earthpony- athletes? They will just fall through the stadium floor!" :D

Yeah, too bad there's no magic spell that would allow non-pegasus ponies to walk on clouds...

Yeap, when she can't walk on the clouds, the inspector will not allow Cloudsdale to host it.
