((Question for the mod. What font do you use for the "DAYS SINCE LAST BREACH" sign?))

(( They’re actually vectors in this case. I started with the 0, and didn’t feel like searching for a font that had that open gap and smooth dry-erase marker line, so it was simple enough to draw.

This also gives me the advantage of having different shapes for the same character (that is, the two ones in 11 are different). Mind you, this is only really feasible with something with one or two digits.

EDIT:

ask-opalescent-pearl said: I think they were asking about the actual sign above it…? XD

Oh. That’s actually just Helvetica Bold 18 pt font. The secret is that the Mac version of Helvetica has a huge unicode support, so…

I’m a cheating cheater.  I can’t find it now, but I used to have a post about all the unicode-using words I have, like VƎƦƂOГN being Equestrian for ‘danger/warning’, evolved from “Verboten”))

Fortunately, we-askmikaiandcap (Ask blog), order was restored quickly. These situations occur for a variety of reasons. For example, on the list Westwood maintains, number five was, “The contained entity asked nicely.”

Westwood finds the strangest things in the WCP Drop-box, and most of the time they don’t put themselves in. Mind you, it’s his job to find strange things, but hey.

As I have said before it. This changling only comes around every now and again and this particular changeling pretty much just….well licks and sqwacks. Fortunately I have these two guests here that seem to keep me dry at least for the time being……He has never once tried to hurt me or shape shift….maybe it doesn’t see a need to.

((Cameos from Doppel, Scootoaster, and Kid Discord As always these guys are awesome and if you havn’t checked them out. DO IT!))

Sorry this took so long to come out. it was originally going to be longer but with everything that’s been happening to me its been difficult to find time and motivation to do these but you guys are just awesome with your patience. I will kind of explain whats going on on my mod blog here

(( Tinkerbox makes awesome animations. Go follow them! ))

We cannot comment on giant undead bees, ask-librarian-dash (ask blog), so yes, our appearance is entirely due to "Agent Kevin". This is all his fault.

We’ll be returning to our regular randomness tomorrow! A big thank you to Adamant and Westwood from Ask The Night Guards for taking time out of their “busy” schedules to help me with all these questions!

Since the guest week, Westwood has confiscated the joke book, and claims it has been taken “To a wing of the library where the original puns won’t be abused.” Unfortunately, I cannot disagree.

askpun:

As always, you can see more of Adamant and Westwood over at Ask The Night Guards.

Yes, let us focus on the phonemon of tumbleweeds appearing indoors (which is under research) and not on earlier questions. That is where your focus should be!

askpun:

I sometimes think that the crests on the Night Guard armor is to keep jokes from going over their heads! You can see more of Adamant and Westwood over at Ask The Night Guards.

The crests have two primary purposes: they can be used in cutting attacks and increase flight maneuverability. Westwood reports that the helmets can also resemble a fin in order to cause ponies to believe there is a shark in the water. This latter function is not officially approved, however, regardless of how amusing it may be.

askpun:

They’re certainly answering a lot of questions that had piled up, I should do these guest host weeks more often! As always, you can see more of my handlers in the Night Guard over at Ask The Night Guards!

The failed pun attempts continue. Westwood reports that these puns lower the bar, but he failed to specify if such a bar was a klondike or otherwise.

askpun:

A bit of a serious series of responses from Ask The Night Guards!

Finally, if you are near a pun-off between Pun Pony and Discord, and succumb to effects of poison joke, the proper procedure is to make fun of your own situation before alerting a guard that is standing still by tickling them with a feather.

asksweetcream:

Let’s tell a story without throwing blame around, although my annoyance levels are growing.

As an artist likely knows, the staff at Bronycon is trying their best, however have operational issues at times.

My friend was told there was a booth open, then after a few emails told that ‘oops nope…

(( Signal boosting because Sweet Cream mod is very awesome, does wonderful art, and is in a bit of a pickle. ))

askpun:

That was certainly an “animated” response! You can see more of my supervisors in the Night Guard over at Ask The Night Guards!

We are in contact with many ponies who dabble in word play. Besides Pun Pony, Spoonerism Pony, and Limerick Pony, we also must keep in contact with Double Entendre Pony. Visits with the latter can get quite awkward. Often times, Clint the tumbleweed appears.
