Flopcast 049: Journey to the Flopagos Islands
Kornflake's "What's in the Bag?" segment delays our coffee consumption by almost a minute, which is a big problem; we're frightened by National Cheese Ball Day; we celebrate the career of comic book artist Carmine Infantino, who brought us Flash, Elongated Man, and (most importantly) Detective Chimp; Kornflake samples some mysterious homebrewed Harry Potter-themed beer; The Flopcast meets The FlappCast; and Kevin reports on his recent trip to Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands. And if you think we can talk about blue-footed boobies without a nice classy burst of immature giggling, you don't really know us anymore, do you?
April 17 is National Cheese Ball Day, so make sure to celebrate with one of the following food items:
Carmine Infantino, legendary comic book artist (and uncle of Jim Infantino of Jim's Big Ego), passed away on April 4. His iconic redesign of the Flash for DC's Showcase #4 is considered the beginning of the Silver Age of comics. And let's not forget Detective Chimp!
Now, don't get confused...this is the Flopcast. The FlappCast, co-hosted by our friend Grant, focuses on Flappers Comedy Club in Burbank, CA, and is worth checking out if you like comedy shop talk.
Kevin and Felicity recently visited Ecuador and the Galapagos islands with the College of Curiosity. Coincidentally, their accomodations in Quito were adjacent to the Flopcast's Ecuadorian headquarters!

Finally, we knew you wouldn't be satisfied unless we showed you some boobies:
