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

Today at Flavorpill, we liked everything, including iconic 20th century photography, better once it’s been reimagined with Legos. We rooted for Das Racist in their cartoon battle with the New Yorker. We applauded innovative uses for VHS tapes and floppy disks (now if we could only repurpose our Beanie Babies.) We invested in deodorant to evade the Hawaii 5-O. We looked back on a time when bears roamed Manhattan and the whole island cost $12. We shook our heads at Kermit and Miss Piggy’s latest duet — Kermit, you can do so much better!  Call us. We felt like we were Facebook friends with Charles Saatchi because he told us 30 things about himself. We totes toted around a tote bag made of a Target billboard. We spreken ze prejudice. We thanked PopCandy for going to the trouble of making us this list of Labor Day weekend TV marathons. Finally, we bore witness to Chris Brown’s bowtie and all the important revelations it made. Hey, bowtie, do you know Aretha Franklin’s crazy hat?
