Gawker: Though technically the Gay Pride Parade was last weekend, yesterday Nabisco posted this photo of their iconic Oreo cookie on their Facebook. The photo was shared over 49,000 times and gained over 168,000 “likes,” though it obviously made some people vow to never buy Nabisco products again. If you’re so inclined to boycott Nabisco, here’s a list of things you can never, ever buy again, because you got offended by this humble rainbow cookie.
Miss Austin Texas: Paul Qui has a pretty kickass girlfriend/“backbone of his operation” who goes by the name of Deana Saukam. She travels, eats, wears Rag & Bone, and wishes that Slash was her mom. You are so cool, Deana. So cool.

War! Good God. What is it good for?

It’s going to be completely disassembled after the Paralympics; it’s just there to provide 1 out of every 10 meals served at the Olympics!…yeah, it’s sad.
NYT Diners Journal: Seamus Mullen is opening a seasonal restaurant at The Standard NYC, doing summery, Spanish-influenced dishes. Book reservations now, because come winter, the restaurant is going to turn into an ice-skating rink, and Seamus Mullen is going to be flash-frozen in a block of ice and put in storage.
