Today at Flavorpill, we were surprised to discover that Napoleon’s brother Joseph spent part of his life in New Jersey. We liked Moviefone’s list of five sequels that are pretty much the same as the originals, which was inspired by The Hangover Part II. We were shocked by the total cost of all of Oprah’s favorite things: $23.8 million. We streamed the new Mark Ronson-produced Black Lips LP. We read an excerpt from Mindy Kaling’s forthcoming book of essays, Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me. We realized how much Barack Obama’s signature resembles “a cartoon baby Tyrannosaurus playing with a ball of yarn.” We were terrified by these GIFs of American Idol finalist Scott McCreery. We were impressed by this Chewbacca bento box. We enjoyed reading Herman Melville’s description of himself in this passport application. We came across a totally adorable photo of Jason Sudeikis as a little kid. And finally, we wondered if Guy Fieri realizes that Melissa McCarthy based her Bridesmaids character on him. Looking back at her performance now, we totally see it.
