The tables have turned on internet troll king Ryan Reynolds when he got a taste of his own medicine being punk'd by buddies Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal.

They got him real good by inviting him to an ugly Christmas sweater party that was not an ugly Christmas sweater party.


The 42-year-old Deadpool star posted a picture of himself in a rarely-seen state of defeat.

Flanked by the cheerful faces of Jackman, 50, and Gyllenhaal, 38, Reynolds is looking doleful in a tacky red and green Christmas sweater. But this isn't just any tacky sweater.

A three-dimensional gold ribbon is the icing on the cake on the clueless participant of a non-existent theme.

And the winners are Jackman and Gyllenhaal.

Reynolds wrote on Instagram:
"These f-----g assholes said it was a sweater party."


It was refreshing to see Reynolds—who is usually the mischievous one ribbing his comrades on social media—being duped in such an epic way. There is no release date set for the confirmed Deadpool 3 film, but the first two installments are now out in a double feature Blu-ray and 4K version available here.

Fans laughed along with the successful prank in which Reynolds was the unexpected patsy.




Jackman and Gyllenhaal are giving high-fives for pulling off the gag.

Let the memes begin!

Gyllenhaal is slated to join Jackman and Reynolds in the Marvel comics family when he takes on the role of Marvel's Mysterio.




Riffing off of Deadpool's contentious relationship with Wolverine from the Marvel comics, Reynolds routinely trolls Jackman on social media.

Jackman's character Logan referenced the Merc with a Mouth in two of his standalone films since the pair appeared in 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine together. That 2009 film—now available here as a Blu-ray double feature with the second Wolverine film—marked the first time Reynold's played the character Deadpool.

But Jackman made nice on one occasion for Reynolds's birthday.


Reynolds quickly fired back, "This man is a monster. He's not even from Australia. He's from Milwaukee," referencing Wolverine's shirtless doppleganger—the famed "Milverine."


Reynolds even extends his trolling to wife and Gossip Girl actress, Blake Lively.

Now with Jake Gyllenhaal getting in with the holiday high-jinks, something tells me the brohaha is just getting started.

Get ready folks, because 2019 could start off with a bang.

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

Redditor u/Animeking1108 wanted to discuss how the education system has ideas that sometimes are just more a pain in the butt than a daily enhancement... What was the dumbest rule your school enforced?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

Redditor u/Gorgon_the_Dragon wanted to hear from doctors about why it is imperative we always get second and maybe third opinions by asking... Doctors of Reddit, what was the worse thing you've seen for a patient that another Doctor overlooked?

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.
