What’s on at Flavorpill: Links That Made the Rounds in Our Office


Today at Flavorpill, we got a look at the leaked script for J.J. Abrams’ new spy show, Undercovers. Spoiler alert: It’s very, very fast. We learned the word “tessellate,” thanks to the fine folks at Subway and their triangular pieces of cheese. We were tickled by how much butt cleavage can look like boob cleavage — yet unconvinced that it warranted an entire book. We wished that McDonald’s ran cute gay-friendly ads in the US. We laughed at these photoshopped images of internet memes mashed up with art masterpieces. We tried to imagine Oprah Winfrey as an intern way back in 1973. We were proud of Homer Simpson, who has been named the greatest character created for TV and film in the past 20 years by Entertainment Weekly. We wondered if we should be worried about a cat taking our job one day. We saw the BP station sign down the block from HQ get defaced. And finally, we listened to She & Him play “Fools Rush In” as part of the Levi’s “Pioneer Sessions.” Very pretty!
