The Pony and "A" blog wasn't intended to entertain the masses, but that's exactly what it's doing.

Pony is an ESL tutor who communicates with one of his students who goes by the name of "A" through Skype. To test her on her English sentence structure Pony regularly sends her photographs and urges her to write a paragraph about her interpretation of what's happening in the image. The results are hilarious and sweet; "A" definitely has a great sense of humor and spins imaginative and quirky tales. Her broken English adds to the charm of this entertaining blog.

The Pony and "A" blog exploits the hilarious relationship between a teacher and student.

Implications - Internet memes and blogs allow tech-savvy citizens to engage with an online community, providing them with social interaction and entertainment. Companies can appeal to target markets of online consumers by producing online venues of communication.
