As if we didn’t already know bronies were everywhere. Some pony fan working for Microsoft thought they’d have some fun by hiding a reference in an error message template. True to the nature of an error message, this normally unseen popup ended up being visible to Xbox users late last night.
Here’s the original Tweet:

Mock Error Title This would be some long description about the error. Read it and weep! And if you haven't looked up this phrase on the internet, please do! You will find a My Little Pony episode called "Read it and Weep." Cloudchasers and Wonderbolts, you'll never be forgotten! PUR-1023 EHBypUC2eEaq3QKe.220.127.116.11.6 2017/07/19 - 00:42:07 UTC
Reports state the error message is harmless and can be ignored.
The error message is a reference to an episode from season two of the show. The last sentence is a little confusing and probably the result of broken english, but it refers to a pony named Cloud Chaser and Equestria’s elite rescue team known as the Wonderbolts. The episode and ponies mentioned are probably this individual’s favorite of the show. Let’s hope they don’t get into too much trouble over this harmless mistake!
