Nope. What I mean is that sometimes corny puns are expected or is something people are used to. Granted this is a great line, and it fits especially well with pinkie. Idk, I guess thinking pinkie was being serious was just what I had in mind
Applejack/Engi - A.J. is tough and not-too-amazing at math - Dell is brilliant and squishy Pinkie Pie/Pyro - Pinkie is crazy but not insane and has no skill or known history with fire Twilight/Sniper - Twilight is not a wilderness dwelling bush pony - that's her total opposite Fluttershy/Medic - Flutters is not a mad scientist (save in some Tumblrs) - that's her total opposite Rainbow Dash/Scout - Makes sense Rarity/Spy - Agree Zacora/Demo - Ehh... kinda 50/50 on that one. Don't know if she can make explosives. Berry Punch/Demo - This one I'll give you Spike/Soldier - Oh where do I begin with all the things wrong with this one...
You know, Pinkie as the Engineer actually fits closer than A.J.
Yeah, Dell and A.J both have southern accents, but has A.J ever built a flying machine? Or a party cannon? Or the Welcome Wagon? Pinkie Pie, apparently at least, has built much more than A.J, in terms of things that fix practical problems.
I know, right? I mean, I aint saying AJ aint smart, but the only things we've ever see her build are barns, and the only gadgets we ever see her use is an apple cart. Pinkie Pie is the local gadgeteer genius!
Not to mention I think I heard somewhere that her voice actress has a degree in engineering (not sure if it's true so don't hold it against me), so it could also be considered more 4th wall breakage. x3;
