Flopcast 052: Library Bacon - Overdone and Overdue

Kornflake looks forward to No Sock Day, despite the dire implications for puppets everywhere; there is indeed bacon at the library (apparently the books are not enough of a draw anymore); our "Chickens in the News" segment takes us to Florida's Chicken Church (which is actually the least weird thing in Florida); and this week's "Pudding Pages" segment is truly outrageous. Now excuse us as we prepare for next week's Flopcast anniversary celebration. Hey, maybe the library will lend us a cheese ball.

Show Notes

First, here's a last-minute plug for our friend Kim Jennings, celebrating her new CD release on May 10 at Amazing Things.

If you can't make it to Bedford Library's Cookbook Book Club on May 7, here is the tome that has Kornflake excited:

You can read an interview with the author on the Bacon Unwrapped blog.

May 8 is No Socks Day, a great day to wear your flops!

When in Florida, you might want to visit the Chicken Church (but don't tell them who sent you, they might get angry).

Jem and the Holograms opening theme:

DVDs of the three individual seasons and the complete series are available from Shout! Factory.

Many great resources exist online for collectors of the original Jem dolls by Hasbro (headquartered in Pawtucket, RI). Check out Jem Vs Pranceatron and Rock Jem.

In collaboration with Hasbro, Integrity Toys launched a new line of Jem dolls in 2012!

Like Kornflake, Felicity was a fan of the Jem animated series. And even as a Barbie collector, she acknowledges that Mattel totally ripped off Hasbro in this instance.
