I have somewhat recently been informed that I share the planet with one "Meghan Thee Stallion". When I heard this, I naturally assumed it must be an equine cartoon character in the way one thinks of 'Felix THE Cat' as a cartoon cat........

.......or for you youngsters, 'Sonic the Hedgehog'.
In fact, I figured she might well be a new character destined to pair up with 'BoJack Horseman' since that show does little to keep species from crossing. Though the 'stallion' part made me think that in these gender-liberal times, Meghan might be a mare who wishes to be recognized as a male.
Daydreaming of Meghan The(e) Stallion....in a gender-confused sort of way.
But, 'no' I was told, Meghan Thee Stallion is a singer, not a cartoon character or fictional entity. I personally saw no inconsistency with Meghan being a singer AND still being a fictional character. After all, Kermit THE Frog had a successful singing career.
So I decided to trust my instincts and look her up. And good thing I did, because, lo and behold, she WAS in fact a cartoon character! Look:
Meghan Thee (not quite so stallion-looking) Stallion
Okay, I admit she's pretty realistically drawn, but still. Come on, there's no way this is a real human being! However, I was disappointed by her lack of clear, horsey features or even any connection to music. Sure, there are horselike aspects here and there, but I still think the artist could have done better. Look how easy it could have been:
And if I needed any further proof that this was not a real singer, I did get to hear a song of hers where she incessantly sings "yadda yadda" for about a half hour or so. (No neighing however).
Despite all this I have heard they awarded her a Grammy! Now, THAT is a very nice gesture. It shows we have come a long way since Mr. Ed who never won any speech contests to my knowledge.
Ed was ahead of his time with those glasses, which Meghan obviously copied. But he probably went too far with the hat.
So, whoever is the artist responsible for drawing 'Meghan Thee Stallion', please consider some alterations. They can be simple. I found this image in a very quick search and I think it's WAY better:
