Happy Halloween, here's some free money!

Thanks to a faulty door lock, a bag of cash tumbled out of an armored truck Friday morning in Maryland, spilling bills all over the road.

Drivers got out of their cars, but not to help clean up. They sped away with nearly all of the money, except for a mere $200, according to WTOP.

Police are investigating and urging the drivers who stole it to give it back. Good luck with that.

There's a New Dolores Umbridge Story on Pottermore

JK Rowling has released a new Harry Potter tale for Halloween on everyone's favorite character to hate, Dolores Umbridge. She also gives us a look at what inspired the character, which as it turns out, is a teacher Rowling once had.
If you don't have a Pottermore account, you can read the full story on Today. It starts out like this:

Dolores Jane Umbridge was the eldest child and only daughter of Orford Umbridge, a wizard, and Ellen Cracknell, a Muggle, who also had a Squib son. Dolores' parents were unhappily married, and Dolores secretly despised both of them: Orford for his lack of ambition (he had never been promoted, and worked in the Department of Magical Maintenance at the Ministry of Magic), and her mother, Ellen, for her flightiness, untidiness, and Muggle lineage. Both Orford and his daughter blamed Ellen for Dolores's brother's lack of magical ability, with the result that when Dolores was fifteen, the family split down the middle, Orford and Dolores remaining together, and Ellen vanishing back into the Muggle world with her son. Dolores never saw her mother or brother again, never spoke of either of them, and henceforth pretended to all she met that she was a pure-blood.

Happy Halloween, Potterheads!

Meet "Pat" Lauer: the new androgynous host of the Today Show.

The Today Show team always goes full throttle into Halloween mode with their costumes, and this year they decided to take on some iconic characters from Saturday Night Live, including the Blues Brothers, Mary Katherine Gallagher and Mom Jeans.

But they didn't just wear the costumes, they also acted out the skits.

Worth watching alone to see Kathie Lee and Hoda in drag as Wayne and Garth.

Controversial Photo of the Day: Chelsea Handler’s Topless Putin Photo Sparks Instagram War

Chelsea Handler repeatedly posted a topless photo of herself riding a horse to Instagram Thursday night, mimicking the classic shirtless Vladimir Putin shot.

But Instagram, citing its Community Guidelines, repeatedly removed the photo.

Needless to say, she was not happy, accusing Instagram of sexism.

"Taking this down is sexist. I have every right to prove I have a better body than Putin." She wrote on her account.

So who wore it better? Handler or Putin?
