Episode 9 - EG vs EQG

Hey.  Y'know what really grinds my gears?

This EQG thing.  ...what?  Oh, no, not the actual franchise.  No, I happen to be a big Equestria Girls fan.  Didn't used to be, but now I love it.  In fact, I denounced it pretty heavily in the beginning, so....I'm a big fat hypocrite, and I don't care.  Twilight cracked horn and I don't care.  I love Equestria Girls to pieces.  So sue me.  What grinds my gears is literally the abbreviation EQG.  Why the "Q"?  So, this is probably just an OCPD thing (which I have), but it seems to me that the abbreviation should be two letters.  Two words, so two letters, right?  Why does Q come along for the ride?  I have always abbreviated it EG.  Equestria.  Girls.  E.  G.  Makes sense to me.  But it seems like the majority go with EQG.  It bugs me.  You don't abbreviate My Little Pony to MLIP, or MLPO, do you?  You don't abbreviate Friendship is Magic to FRIM, do you?  You don't abbreviate The Next Generation to TNEG, or Game of Thrones to GAOT.  So what gives?!  It's not just Equestria Girls, either.  This tendency happens any time there is a Q.  The letter Q just gets sucked into abbreviations.  Why is Q so special?  Who the hell does Q think it is?!  Where does Q get off?!  Well you know what I say?  F*CK Q.  That's what I say.

Part of me wonders if the trend started because of the common fan abbreviation for Equestria Daily, EQD.

It's because "Q" is a rarely used letter, so when it is used, it stands out. It's basically the brain's tendency to add distinction to things to make it quicker to recognize.

LOL!  Oh, wow, that is hilarious!  :laugh:  I think he'll get over it.  He's almost got as big of an ego as Zaphod Beeblebrox.
