After [[ThePrankster prankster]] [[JerkAss Gilda]] in "Griffon the Brushoff" gets pranked herself, she belts out a fierce [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech "Reason You Suck" Speech]] at the [[AddedAlliterativeAppeal presumed perpetrator, Pinkie Pie.]] [[spoiler:It was really her own best friend, Rainbow Dash, who ends up sticking up for Pinkie]].
** There's also a few instances where a character calls someone else "stubborn as a mule", only to realize that an actual mule is standing nearby and quickly add "no offense".
