---Ponies getting drunk on salt. They had one "western" episode where we saw a saloon called "the Salt Lick." This was done in the same spirit that saloons in Australia were called "Billabongs" or in America were called "Watering Holes," aka a place where folks were liable to gather. Horses and other animals gather at salt outcroppings because salt is a necessary nutrient and their diet contains little of it naturally. While eating excessive amounts of salt can make a horse sick or even KILL them (just like any other creature), "drunk" is not one of the possible outcomes.
Trollestia, Molestia, Emo-lestia, Evilestia. For all that she's canonically kind, benevolent, happy and dignified, fanfic writers seem determined to portray Princess Celestia as a thoughtless jerk, a raging pervert, an angsty emo, or a baby-eating villain. At most, she's a mild prankster, and that's stretching assumptions based on one joke she's pulled in the entire two seasons of the show.
