The Poison Joke Incident was a role-play event that took place on the Board from July 24 to 31, 2011. It was started by Kitsune106 and Laburnum.


The incident started when Agent Naomi wandered into a room full of fans and furnaces, apparently a central part of HQ's ventilation system, carrying a bag containing samples of the poison joke plant from the My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. Why she had a bag full of poison joke is not clear, but when young Molly Rath decided to tackle her for laughs, the result was inevitable: the entire bag got sucked into a fan, distributing finely chopped poison joke throughout Headquarters. Shenanigans ensued.

Eventually, Agent Naomi noticed the recurring blue rashes on multiple people and minis, and the fact that most of the maladies related to the victim's personality in some way. The Royal Fanfiction Academy of Equestria was contacted at some point, and agents portalled in groups to the medical facilities there so Zecora could cure everyone with an herb bath.


This table includes all the characters known to be affected, and the joke the plant played on them, in order of their appearance through the thread. Note that Gandalf the Beige doesn't have Permission, so Agent Portia McSweeney doesn't appear outside this RP.
