In case you missed it, a video of Cookie Monster defending his honor against Stephen Colbert. For more Sesame Street characters doing funny things, here's a video of Burt and Ernie lip synching a rap. I don't know why these sorts of things exist, but I am so happy they do.

Silly but fun (and in most cases, true), 7 things that seem like a good idea at first ... but really aren't.

*
From a New York Times blog, experimental bathroom tile art of the most abstract kind (the subway one really hurts my brain).

*
Can you spot the real smile from the fake? Take this quiz from the BBC to find out.

*
From Jan, license plates for geeks. Do any of you Flossy readers have vanity plates? Or seen some interesting ones of late?

*
It's hard to be a bully if you get pantsed (is that the correct spelling?). "Once I've seen your underwear, you are no longer a threat."

*
From Divine Caroline, brain exercises that defy memory loss.

This site may be in Russian, but the pictures are what matter - a long list of really interesting and eye catching feats of advertising.

*
Check out this super cute short French animation about a pair of octopi (which, as Karl Pilkington says, may be the strangest creature on Earth).

*
Speaking of that bald-headed Manc, a great new animation from one of the podcasts: A Pilkington Christmas. (If you're wondering who this man is and why you should care, click here).

*
A user-created not-so-perfect (but very amusing) Word Perfect.

*
I stumbled upon a site that had pictures of a polar bear playing with some huskies. Really cute, right? But my cynicism got the best of me, so I investigated a little further. But, according to Hoax Slayer and the Urban Legends site posted before, the story is true!

*
If you are a book lover but live in a small abode such as myself, this shelving idea may come in handy.

Why should benches be boring? These certainly aren't!

Now that you may have had a chance to watch some of the recently begun NFL regular season, see if you can do better at my Starting Quarterbacks quiz.

See how I did that? Plugged my own goods? You can, too! Send you pictures, links, blogs and whatnot to FlossyLinks@gmail.com. Or really anything interesting you stumble across on the internet. See you next week!
