You know that feeling when something finally dawns on you, something so obvious, something you should have noticed years ago, and now you feel like a complete moron because of it, and you’re afraid to tell other people because they will laugh in your face and poke you with a stick?

Do you know this little guy?

That’s Tails.

I’ve known him since his ‘conception’, in Sonic the Hedgehog 2, from 1992. I could understand English thanks to eg. Transformers cartoons, but wordplay was still a mystery for pre-teen me.

Tails’ real name is Miles Prower.


Get it?

He’s Sonic‘s buddy? The fastest hedgehog alive? Going a gazillion… miles… per hour…? AM I THE ONLY ONE WHO DIDN’T GET THE MEMO?
