Today at Flavorpill, we decided that we need to own a ketchup-dispensing robot, no matter what the cost. We were excited to peruse a new issue of Electric Literature. We watched Bristol Palin publicly sass her mom on Twitter. We listened to Milton Glaser tell a joke. We visited some of New York City’s best subterranean spots and took a photo tour of the past 100 years of the NYC subway system. We were impressed by this woman, who biked a mile to the hospital while in labor. We wanted to take a bite out of Rice Krispiehinge. We were surprised by how many of the women who voice the Disney Princesses actually look like their characters in real life. We lusted after this pepper mill-inspired soap dispenser and this signet ring that doubles as a working wax seal for your personal correspondence. We wished the view out of our office window looked more like an Ansel Adams photograph. And finally, we were outraged by this clip reel of conspicuous product placement in films — particularly the pack of Life Savers candy in the 1932 Marx Brothers comedy Horse Feathers.
