The ontological fallacy of expecting a pony at the end of the day, well, that's what the mount seller sells, same as a butcher.  See, the mount seller, he encourages your capacity for the absurd--an animal that doesn't exist in Zalanthas. Then he tells you it's on sale.  Always a buck to be had doing that, and it's such a desperate sense of entitlement, isn't it, to have a goddamned pony in Zalanthas? "Look at me, I own a pony!"

The butcher, he knows what's up.  At the end of the life of all creatures, mushed up, chopped and scattered...we all look the same.  He'll tell you he's selling you a pony steak, and you believe it, because the alternative is too grisly to accept.
