Today at Flavorpill, we were glad to see Billy Connolly was added to The Hobbit cast. We were pleasantly creeped out by this 1902 adaptation of The Wizard of Oz. We clutched our stomachs when we found out that the McDonald’s Shamrock Shake would be available at all 14,000 U.S. locations. We wanted to buy this Macquarium. We swooned over this fashion video from the ’60s. We learned that Chattanooga now has its very own typeface. We fell in love with these animals who think they’re people. We were blown away by this story about the Fatty Arbuckle scandal. We suddenly realized we’ve seen the Pizza Planet Truck from Toy Story many times since the film hit theaters. We counted down to The Hunger Games. We loved Bryan Cranston’s Nerf gun. And finally, we learned how opera helped Meryl Streep’s career. Maybe she’ll belt out a tune for us when the Oscars arrive.
