Today at Flavorpill, we wondered if aliens are really responsible for the gentrification of Williamsburg. We learned a lot about the science behind kissing. We decided that if The Fantastic Mr. Star Fox was a real movie, we’d totally pay to see it in the theater. We found out why our skin gets wrinkled after spending too much time in the tub. We celebrated The Simpsons’s Milhouse, and characters like him elsewhere in the world of comedy. We wanted to know the back story behind this photo of Hunter S. Thompson, John Cusack, and Johnny Depp riding around in a convertible with a blow-up doll. We met Miss Charlie Brown, the richest dog in South Dakota. We couldn’t believe the news that Cap’n Crunch is being forced to walk the plank. We liked Entertainment Weekly‘s roundup of 15 well-matched young/old pairs in movies. And finally, we may have taken note of this recipe for awesome pot brownies from Jerome Chang, a former pastry sous-chef at Le Cirque and the man behind the DessertTruck Works food truck.
