I think the point is that he's killing him because he believes the guy to be a psychotic lunatic for seeing the ponies.

The interpretation of murdering people for liking ponies makes more sense. The idea that it's just because he's hallucinating covers it up with plausible deniability. So yeah, I agree with Chemahkuu on this one.
If the threadbomb is following the narrative of that scene from Game of Thrones at all, Shran's explanation makes more sense. In the show, the guy who is being executed abandoned his post (which is punishable by death), but explained that he and his party had only left after having been attacked by an ancient race called the White Walkers, who everyone had believed to be extinct for thousands of years. Therefore, his story was completely unbelievable and they executed him anyway.

But either way, it's just a threadbomb; it's not like anyone is seriously wishing for the death of MLP fans.

Hell, I haven't even seen the movie and I got that straight away. Quite funny actually.

Where on that threadbomb does it say the guy likes what he sees anyway?

Of course it's just a threadbomb. But there's nothing in the narrative of the bomb itself that says the guy is being executed for leaving his post. In fact, the narrative of the bomb suggests unambiguously that he's following orders. Especially for those who don't know the GoT reference.

At least it managed a way to use the phrase "the narrative of the bomb".

The image was quite funny, even though I am a 'brony', however, Admiral Shran's addition was unnecessary and in poor taste.

Maybe I should just stop posting in this thread. Every time I do it seems to ruin the funny.
