Just in case you're confused: Trixie was eating that pony's crackers the whole time. She didn't notice that she had forgotten to take out her own packet. The stallion is no one in particular either. The show needs random characters to fill out various scenes, yes? So did I this time.
This is an entry for the Best Comics competition.
So while I genuinely based this comic on a situation recounted to me by a friend, many of you commenting have explained that this is in fact a long-lived anecdote most famously attributed to Douglas Adams, included in the Hitchhiker's Guide, but also existing in many other forms.
Yeah, I guess I basically gave this everything I had. I'm definitely not going to have the time to put this much effort into another comic for a good while.

First of all, I really like the idea of the comic. Starting from a simple gag from Equestria Girls, you created a funny and entertaining story with a really clever twist at the end. Honestly, I wasn't expecting that. At the same time it was something that could happen to any of us, so it wasn't far fetched, which can be the downfall of any good punchline Anyways, in such comics (at least for me) the humorous value is of the most importance, so I honestly wouldn't even care if this wasn't good in terms of drawing. However, this comic is great in that aspect too
I really like the style! Trixie's face in the third panel is absolutely adorable and immediately put me in a good mood. In general all the expressions in this comic strip are brilliant, especially Trixie's. True, at some angles her face seems to be a bit off to me around the muzzle, but in general, I think both in terms of style and technique of drawing ponies it's a really good job.
In the fifth panel it seems that you had some trouble with the perspective and making the trees look more and more distance, I think there's room for improvement there. Still, all in all the environment is drawn really well too.
What else is there to say? I really like the colors and shading, I'm no comic expert, but they do seem to give off that "comic vibe", so I guess props for that. I also love that touch where Trixie's concentrating on not losing her nerve and not doing anything villain-like, even when she's boiling inside. Reformed Trixie ftw! ;D
I guess that's it. Really chaotic, I know, but I hope I made the basic message clear: Great job! One of the cleverest comics I've seen in a while
Blap. That is all.
isn't this from goodbye and thanks for all the fish?
I just didn't catch you point talking about my avatar back then..
