What's On at Flavorpill: The Links That Made the Rounds in Our Office


Today at Flavorpill, read about Peter Terzian’s experiences as a “park ranger” at John F. Kennedy’s birthplace in Brookline, Massachusetts. We found out what butter-laden, delicious desserts Paula Deen will be serving at her Fourth of July picnic. We explored the current golden age of all-female tribute bands, from Sheagles and Blonde Jovi to AC/DShe and Cheap Chick. We found it hard to believe that Independence Day is 15 years old. We tried to match the grunt with the tennis pro. We memorized Weird Al’s lyrics to Conan’s theme song. We decided that Entertainment Weekly’s new cover — which features Daniel Radcliffe as Harry Potter back when he was 11 — makes us feel incredibly ancient. We listened to what Dan Savage had to say about monogamy. We were surprised to learn that Shaggy’s real name is Norville Rogers (did Scooby know?). And finally, we enjoyed these clever responses to the 20 craziest job interview questions, a list which includes, “How many cocktail umbrellas are there in a given time in the United States?”
