On March 31st, 2012, the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic episode "Ponyville Confidential" aired.[1] In the episode, Rarity discovers that the school newspaper that the secrets of her diary were being published. Upon seeing the secrets, she yells, "I'll destroy her!"

Still, I guess it will not last long like most memes of exploitable nature these days, but hey, it managed to get its 15 minutes of fame before falling to obscurity, and that is… well, a rarity.

Besides, this is still preferable over all the "Trump did a thing/Someone did a thing about Trump" nontroversies plaguing the frontpage lately, so I personally have no complaints.
