What’s On at Flavorpill: The Links That Made the Rounds In Our Office


Today at Flavorpill, we were just as excited as everyone else on the Internet was about OK Go’s music video for their cover of the “Muppet Show Theme Song.” We were saddened by the news that Frank Potenza, better known as “Uncle Frank” from Jimmy Kimmel Live!, has passed away at the age of 77. We thought that the idea of creating a theme park on the site of a nuclear reactor was absolutely nuts — even if it was never used. We were amused to hear that students at Creative Circus, a two-year advertising school in Atlanta, are campaigning to have Don Draper to speak at their graduation. We hoped to never encounter a staircase that’s as creepy as any of these are. We listened to a new Florence and the Machine track called “What the Water Gave Me,” which will presumably be featured on the band’s forthcoming sophomore album. We were amazed by George Bernard Shaw’s crazy Lazy Susan writing hut. And finally, we bookmarked Mental Floss’ roundup of the world’s most unusual restaurants. Our favorite of their picks? Ithaa, an underwater restaurant in the Maldives that’s located 16 feet below sea level.
