Today at Flavorpill, we found it almost impossible to believe that this was a photo of Jonah Hill. We read the 1968 Playboy Club Bunny Manual, courtesy of our friends at The Hairpin. We wanted to grab a few of Steve Thomas’ Soviet-style propaganda posters for the office. We discovered that having the name Peter or Deborah increases the chances that you’re a powerful CEO. We added our two cents to this list of authors who have tricked men into thinking being a drug addict/drunk will improve their shitty, unimaginative prose. We wondered if this cat had fun getting his wacky portrait made. We were happy to hear that Gary Busey has joined the cast of Piranha 3DD. We made a note to grab a pair of limited-edition Super Mario 25th anniversary Chuck Taylors when they hit stores in July. We got schooled by NPR on where in the world monarchies still exist today. We were sad to hear that Alice Ward, the “tough-talking mother of nine” brilliantly played by Melissa Leo in The Fighter, had died at the age of 79. And finally, we found out just how awkward it would be if HP Lovecraft taught sex education.
