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


Today at Flavorpill, we discovered something known in the disaster relief business as the “Waffle House Index.” We found a few of the tidbits in Mental Floss’s roundup of 18 famous TV roles originally played by someone else totally shocking. We read about a city in Germany that recently installed a meter to tax prostitutes for soliciting on its streets. We enjoyed Edith Zimmerman’s tips on how to make your husband a nice dinner — particularly the parts that involve drinking wine. We needed to own these photorealistic camera stickers, stat. We were curious as to how Annie Leibovitz made all of the Kardashian girls the same height in this ad campaign for their new lingerie collection at Sears. We met 10 mistresses who changed history. We were frightened by what will come out of Pauly D’s collaboration with 50 Cent. We drooled over Donny Deutsch’s amazing Upper East Side townhouse — especially his insane contemporary art collection. And finally, we were grateful to MetaFilter for compiling this list of the best Beatles covers on The Muppet Show. Enjoy!
