Ryan Reynolds had some things to say about Eurovision and about how Australia was unfairly included in the mix when his own home country Canada was not. The star was in character as Deadpool for the promotion of Deadpool 2 in the video posted to Twitter.

“Canada. A beautiful country steeped in rich musical history that includes the likes of Adams, Bieber, Young, Bublé, Shatner,” he said.

“And yet, we’ve been snubbed by that European sing-song competition thing you guys use your shit over. Our generous gift of Celine Dion alone should earn us an invite.

“And don’t give me that crap about Canada not being part of the European family. You let in Australia, and they’re barely on the planet.”

“Well it stops now, Europe. You’ve awakened a sleeping moose,” he said.

Supermodel Miranda Kerr has given birth to her second child, a boy named Hart.

While Miranda hasn’t made the announcement herself, TMZ is reporting that she gave birth in L.A. just before midnight last night. And that despite multiple reports that she and Snapchat co-founder husband Evan Spiegel were expecting a girl, she gave birth to a boy.

Hart is apparently named after Spiegel’s grandfather, a prominent San Francisco attorney.

According to ABC News a truck crash in Poland has left a highway covered in 12 tonnes of liquid chocolate, blocking traffic in both directions and creating headaches for clean-up crews.

The tanker overturned in the early hours of the morning after colliding with a traffic barrier in Graboszewo in the country’s west on Wednesday (local time), causing waves of the sugary liquid to coat Poland’s A2 motorway between Wrzesnia and Slupca.

Traffic came to a complete standstill in both directions, with police saying it could take several hours to reopen the road.

Rescue officials said the liquid chocolate was solidifying as it cooled and would require large amounts of hot water to clear away.

“The cooling chocolate is worse than snow,” said Slupca fire brigade senior brigadier Bogdan Kowalski.

According to the manufacturer, spilled chocolate is more difficult to remove than oil and needs to be shifted gradually using pressurised hot water.

In some areas, the chocolate was so thick that heavy machinery was brought in to scoop up the mess.

The driver suffered a broken arm and was taken to hospital.
