Based off the children's series of humans giving animals different foods [a moose a muffin for example], this is a story of what happens when an unnamed human character gives a similarly unnamed earth pony a pretzel. Crazy chaos ensues, with Pinkie Pie helping and hurting the narrator and the two unnamed OCs as they race against time to find a bandage. 

The story was never featured, but was relatively well received upon release. It is the first in a series that Pingas calls the: Salted Pingas One-shots, a series of one-shot self-insert fictions. 

The cover image was drawn in Paint, in spite of its sarcastic assertion otherwise.
