It is the pony from the "Cteno" tumblr. It's run by an artist by the name of Slugbox. I would post the link here, but a portion of his material, including the tumblr from which this pony is featured in, is NSFW.

Yeah, I found Slugbox not too long after this. Thanks, though.

There should be a comma after the word merrie, it's one of the most important parts of the song that comma.

@.@ Pogo. Yes.

Despite being too young to remember it, I did, in fact, discover Pogo owing to the magic of the Internet. I then borrowed as much of the Pogo collection as possible from the library and read through it over and over and over. Masterful tribute here, my good sir. :nod:

I thank whichever (unremembered to me by now) site pointed me in the direction of Pogo in the first place. Once you Go Pogo, you never go back. ;)

And Merry Christmas to yourself as well! =D Celebrate with spunk, vision, and aplomb~
