A horse with a knack for magic has caused uproar amongst the magicians guild. Members are divided on the nag's proposed membership to the secretive clique.

The argument centers around the fact that the horse is in possession of only one illusion, whereas guild guidelines state that "to be considered a magician, an artist must be capable of performing one or more illusion."

The guild's head, Malcolm the mystical, commented that, "Personally, I am for it. But I have to yield to the views of the majority of the guild, for it is they who hold the fate of this magical thoroughbread in their hands. And, after all, rules are rules."

Others have not been so positive. Illusionist Alan "the Astonisher" Swindlehurst, protested zealously that, "I don't care how good [the pony] is at carving, and re-assembling, his jockey, there is simply no place in this wonderful craft for a one trick pony."

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
