Ethan Millard brings up the audio of a crazy scene when 2 deer are tangled up in antlers in Kansas when a game warden shoots the antlers with his service pistol, breaking them but freeing the trapped bucks.  Quite a marksman. Also, recently Serena Williams, the most decorated Tennis player in the history of the world, stumbled upon two men playing tennis near her home where she was walking her dog.  She decided to crash the party and dominate the pair.  Internet coolness followed.  Plus, a taco truck in Seattle came to the rescue to save our zenheadlines and feed folks in traffic.  Ethan and Alex then push their emergency traffic potty system.

Moonlight won the award for Best Picture, but Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway called up La La Land to receive it.

It turns out the two presenters had been given the wrong envelope.

Price Waterhouse Cooper says they're sorry for the mistake and they're investigating what went wrong.  So far, they think a duplicate envelope for Emma Stone's Best Actress award was mistakenly given to Warren Beatty as he walked on stage.

The hero of the day was La La Land Producer Jordan Horowitz who stepped up to the mic and announced the real winners and invited them on stage. 

We also talk about two Russian Bandy teams that are in big trouble.  Bandy is a sport similar to hockey.

The Russian Super League hosted a match in Arkhangelsk between Baikal-Energiya and Vodnik.

Because the winner would have to go on to play the most difficult team int he league, they started scoring on themselves.  Between the two teams tehy scored twenty own goals.

Our Zen Headline for the day was on the topic of the recent death of Bill Paxton.  Alex loved Bill Paxton for his film Twister and he's not the only one.

Across the midwest, storm chasers parked their vehicles so their GPS tags spelled out the initials BP in his honor.

The famed swimming pigs of the Bahamas are mysteriously dying off and Ethan Millard's theory is death by frat boys coming from Ivy-League Schools on Vacation.  Alex Kirry says that the owner is blaming everyone else but that the fame and fortune he's gained over the pigs makes him the real killer.  Also, they really just think that in the end, is the meat still good enough to put in the ground to roast?  I mean, for a proper burial.  If the Bachelor has taught us anything, its that privileged people need to have fun too whether its eating the pigs or riding them in the water.  Plus, zenheadlines where students save a puppy from a well when firefighters are unable to in Turkey.
