A Derpy Day Message by Balthasar999 A Derpy Day Message by Balthasar999
OH WHAT THE HELL one more little comic or whatever.

Apparently it's Derpy Day, so I'll hop on the bandwagon but with a little positivity and forward-thinking. Everyone loves that crazy kid.

EDIT: You have no idea how hard it was for me to not title this "Can't Keep a Good Girl Downs." I hope Derpy migrates back to the female Homer Simpson or Tommy Chong voice I always imagined, and my super-secret hope is that these little comics I've drawn on here make it back to the animators and bolster their spirits.
My only qualm is that the fans decided Dinky is her daughter and not her lil' sister. What? Derpy gotta be free to follow whatever whim pops into her head, not take care of some kid. Plus I read her as being, like, 20. I guess I can see the impetus to make her seem healthy by giving her a family, but fie! Fie upon a sacrifice of funny in the name of acceptability! Man, I'm pretty drunk...

onomatopoeia (n): The property of a word of sounding like what it represents.

I don't have any proof, but I'm certain it's supposed to represent the kind of nonsense stutter you might involuntarily make if you were thoroughly cheated in the brains department.
Like "duh" was back in the early '90s - Now it just means "obviously" but people used to say it in this really exaggerated, cross-eyed way at first that made it clear it meant "only a literally drooling helmet-wearer would think this isn't obvious." I remember people getting in trouble for being un-PC for saying it when I was really little, but now it's lost all of its sting and it's inevitable that the same happens to "derp." I think you could argue it just means "brainfart" now - People saying "I derped" and such.
But mainly I like it because "derp" is a cuter-sounding coinage of this century with just a bit of an edge to it, while "ditz" just feels too '80s and passe, and I don't like the hard "tz." Plus it's just interesting how the meaning of slang changes over time as it gets divorced from its origin. I think it's "the cat's pajamas", which must have been a reference to something specific really cool people were all about back in the 1920s, but now no one cares what it is and any sane person would only use it ironically.

I gave the Derpy salute, which is just letting your eyes de-focus and whanging your shin on something.

Well it was a Thursday, dude! Just for some reason I got it into my head to go on DA after coming home from a night out. At least it kept me off Facebook...
