Round two starts off with a plethora of crazy computer accessories. Actually that mitten doesn't seem so crazy to me ... I've worn gloves to type before!

From the Annals of the Intriguing: Esquire shares a letter sent to them by a young J.D. Salinger - never before published online - in which he questions his very ability to write a novel.

A lizard that looks like Spiderman. For some reason when I read this I thought of a tiny lizard in a costume. I've obviously been inundated by too many costumed pets online!

Are you one of those people who only watches the Super Bowl for the commercials? Forsooth! This year's game will be great because no matter the outcome, good guys win. Still, in preparation for your media ad binge today, peruse these Best Super Bowl Commercials from years past.

Any bookworms like me will recall hours spent idly looking through library books at random in the school or public library and finding some strange and occasionally befuddling titles and covers. This site features some of the best (and weirdest) around (I'm almost positive I've seen almost all of these on the shelves of my former schools)

Sure everyone knows that certain things, like movie popcorn, have certain costs built in. But what about the 1000% markup on text messages? Flossy reader Sarah has shared an interesting story about some of America's biggest ripoffs.
*
From Jan, it seems that a new vegetable (kale + brussel sprout) has been introduced (to the horror of children everywhere). Anyone else actually like these two things? Roasted brussel sprouts are delicious!
*
What's the difference between a fruit and a vegetable anyway? Plenty of people in this gardening forum weight in, and it eventually digresses into absurdity (but what else is new on message boards? Thanks Angie!)

Did it make you think? Did it make you laugh? Did you FWD it or retweet it? Then send it to me at FlossyLinks@gmail.com and share it with your fellow Flossers!

For the rest of the week you can follow me as well as such bizarre Tweeters as the Drunk Hulk for entertainment and oddities. Enjoy your week!
