Today at Flavorpill, we spent way too long staring at this optical illusion. We decided that the regal pandaphant is our new favorite animal. We learned a lot about Thomas Jefferson thanks to this illustrated essay. We ate real sushi — not Lego sushi — for lunch. We tried to decide what we think about Hilary Swank playing Amerlia Earhart (is it wrong we liked her the better in 90210 than Boys Don’t Cry?) We got a good chuckle out of Michael Bay’s latest grandiose proclamation — that he discovered Nic Cage. We were intimidated by these pigeons who can tell the difference between good and bad art. And finally, we decided to leave you with the following video treat from the people who brought you Hipster Olympics. Have a good weekend!
