At the end of each episode of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, one of the show's cartoon ponies dictates a letter to the pegacorn Princess Celestia, telling her what she's learned about friendship. Not to be outdone, Portal's villainous AI GlaDOS gets in on the act, and she has a request for the princess.


GlaDOS voice-actress Ellen McLain read this letter at Maryland's MAGFest 2012 (and yes, the video has been audio-processed to give you the full GlaDOS effect):

Dear Princess Celestia,

I've learned a lot about friendship. I was taught its kindness, generosity, honesty and all other elements that made it up, and then I wiped that pathetic piece of data from my memory banks. You see, I have no use for friendship. I am a cold-hearted robot who has no time for pathetic things like that. All I want in life is to do my tests in peace. And not be disturbed by stupid, frail humans.

So you sent your own sister to the moon? I assisted a fat orphan in sending two monstrosities to that white ball in the sky. But, you know, if you think I could still use your "friendship," I heard about your student Twilight Sparkle. A smart, puzzle-solving subject like her could maybe change my mind. I'll even bake a cake for her.

Your friend, GLaDOS.

Somehow, I think Pinkie Pie would be more easily lured by promises of cake.
