A fireworks festival at Oban in Scotland went awry, releasing the entire load of explosives (meant for a half hour long show) at once. So, minus one very nice well-produced fireworks show. Plus one "Minute-long-spark-and-boom Party".

After her husband Gordon Scott's passing, Beverly Smith threw her husband's ashes into the Florida Keys with a note and some spare change - money to let the bottle recipient call Smith and inform her of her husband's new locale. Scott, a lifetime lover of travel and adventure, would get one more chance to go across the world. Since then, Scott has traveled up and down the Florida coast, floating from beach to beach.

Ryan Reynolds is not messing around with his role as Deadpool, on and off the screen. Blake Lively's been nothing if not a great pillar of support for her husband as he's pranced around enjoying the 12 Days of Deadpool, and also insisted on sporting his costume for Mother's Day and Thanksgiving.

Lively pulled through with this custom-made, wool rendition of Deadpool riding a unicorn while brandishing a chimichanga for one kicka** holiday gift. Big boy's gotta' eat right?

It's no surprise that our reality-TV gameshow host-in-chief lies constantly. He lives in a reality distrotion field that would make Steve Jobs jealous. It'd be amazing, really, if weren't so dangerous for literally every single person on planet Earth. So John Oliver really, really wants to burst that bubble, and he's putting the truth where Trump can see it. 

We all know that Trump likes to watch cable news. He makes it a habit of tweeting about it and even calling in to them as these shows are airing. So Last Week Tonight is running a series of commercial featuring a cowboy that switches from talking about catheters to the nuclear triad in a way that even he can understand. So while Trump is eating his morning taco bowl, let's hope he gets some medicine with his sugar.
