What’s On At Flavorwire: The Day’s Best Links

Happy National Teacher’s Day! Celebrate with us by learning a few new things, eh? We found out that Mr. T was a gym teacher and that quite a few celebrities started out as (presumably crush-worthy) teachers. We got a hilarious primer on every illogical moment in Star Trek. We’re thrilled that the season of summer book lists is upon us — here’s the first of many amazing lists. We were visually overstimulated by these Hello Kitty/Sesame Street fondant cake… things. Seriously, there are so many faces at once. Finally, New York-based readers should check out this campaign to fund this year’s Mermaid Parade, an amazing Coney Island tradition that is on the verge of going extinct.
