Last Week Tonight was off this week, but John Oliver took to YT for this report on those “sparkly guns you can shoot in the sky,” … fireworks.

Creationist Cartoon Shown In Georgia Biology Class Equates Evolution, Homosexuality With Satan. It wasn’t “properly vetted.” Oh, okay.

And here’s The Weekly ShoutOUT™. Each week we’re going to focus on one out athlete/performer and feature a daily pic and career timeline. We’ll be showcasing the big names, but also the lesser-known gay celebs who deserve more recognition. This week we give a ShoutOUT™ to … Ed Droste.

36-year-old Ed is the founder and lead singer of Grizzly Bear, but before it became an actual band, it was Ed’s solo moniker, and back in 2004 he released the first album under that name, Horn Of Plenty, which included the gorgeous “Deep Sea Diver.”

After a couple of years of “best” lists from the past, it’s time for Dark Snicks to come out, so we’re going to be counting down … The 20 Worst Songs Of The 70’s and 80’s!

At #10 is … “Agadoo” by Black Lace.

Novelty songs are the greatest mixed bag in pop music. For every fun and kitschy example (Total Coelo’s “I Eat Cannibals,” Taco’s “Puttin On The Ritz,” Meri Wilson’s “Telephone Man”), there are plenty more that are like nails on a chalkboard, and produce cringes and winces. Exhibit A – 1984’s “Agadoo” Please make it stop.
