Vulture Reports on “Bob’s Burgers” Episode Themed Around Bronies


Who knows what might happen! For those who don’t know what Bob’s Burgers is, it’s a TV show centered around a family that runs a hamburger shop, somewhat like The Simpsons, except it has more mature and less silly humor, so most consider it closer to King of the Hill.

Don’t let the little “FOX” logo in the bottom-right of the picture fool you; this show is centuries ahead of FOX News. You have to be able to laugh at yourself, but this episode certainly isn’t intended as an insult! For those who want to read more about it and see a few little snippets of the episode that aired, you can check out the article right over here. If we’re any heralds of future bandwagons, this “Equesticles” thing may totally take off.

Regarding the Weekend Reader – April 6th, 2014

Thank you for your continued patience, and I’m sorry for the inconvenience.
