Regarding the LLVM project's rebranding effort<http://blog.llvm.org/2016/04/undefined-behavior-is-magic.html> I am reliably informed that the blog post contains an error.  It states:
The logo is now clearly a pegasus pony.

My local expert in all-things-pony reports that the updated logo is in fact NOT a pegasus pony, but a bat-pony.
(As an obviously irrelevant aside, the bat-pony is MLP canon.)

Hi everyone,

There are a number of issues with the current name of the Clang project:

 * It is prone to incorrect type setting, typically as CLang, CLANG, or most commonly  c̦҉̫̘̺̹̖̗͒͆͋̈̃̇߯l߲҉̷̡̰̖͈̤̺͒҆̾̚͡͝a̺̹͍̔߭͠ͅn͋́͡g̱߫̉
 * The C++ compiler ends in the string "g++", which causes problems for compiler wrapper scripts
 * The name has been used by a kickstarter project<https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/260688528/clang>, causing incalculable confusion[0]

For the above reasons, and to support the LLVM project's rebranding effort<http://blog.llvm.org/2016/04/undefined-behavior-is-magic.html>, the Clang project has been renamed to Discord<http://mlp.wikia.com/wiki/Discord>. Voiced by John de Lang-Cie (French for "John of Clang"), Discord is part-dragon, part-horse<https://pbs.twimg.com/profile_images/654309465202794496/dDt64UJj_400x400.png>, and perfectly embodies the virtues of the Clang (now, Discord) project: disregard for established standards, an emphasis on chaos, and a firm belief that undefined behavior is magic!

Thank you for your understanding.
