3EB TERM OF THE WEEK: SPARKLE PONY

Do you understand me, I want to be annihilated
Perfect obliterated, oh oh you & not going to make it
All suh dudes well there just phonies and all the girls are sparkle ponies
Do you understand me, don't let my heart go flat line

A “Sparkle Pony” is someone who comes to Burning Man unprepared and ends up relying on the generosity of others, purposefully or otherwise, for basic things like food and water and sometimes even more.

The term “sparkle pony” is one often used for perfectly coiffed, high maintenance attendees of BM, who are not equipped to handle camping in a desert for a week.
