JULY 24-30, 2019 UCW 23 WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM WEEKLY HOROSCOPE NEWS OF THE WEIRD by the Editors at Andrews McMeel Syndication Walmart shunning An unnamed woman pulled a stunt in a Wichita Falls, Texas, Walmart on June 25 that got her banned from the store. Ac- cording to NBC News, Police Sgt. Harold McClure said a store employee reported that the woman had eaten half a cake from the bakery, then at- tempted to buy the other half (for half-price), saying she found the cake in that condi- tion. While Walmart did not want to press charges, they did prohibit her from shopping at the store in the future — a poli- cy they're familiar with, after an incident in January at another Wichita Falls Walmart. In that case, a woman rode an electric cart around the store's parking lot while guzzling wine from a Pringles can. She was also Walmart-shunned. [NBC News, 7/1/2019] Telling it like it is A diner in Little Rock, Ar- kansas, is getting attention for a clever menu item. According to United Press International, Mama D's offers a "My Girl- friend Is Not Hungry" option, which adds extra fries, chicken wings or cheese sticks to an or- der to share with a dinner part- ner who underestimates their hunger. On its Facebook page, Mama D's said the option is "a solution for those who tend to dine with people that eat food off their plate." [UPI, 7/3/2019] Sweet revenge Serina Wolfe, 24, was about $5,000 mad at her boyfriend, Michael Crane, for his refusal to buy her a plane ticket for her return trip to New York, the Tampa Bay Times reported. So she used his credit card to pay for an expensive breakfast at Clear Sky Beachside Cafe in Clearwater, Florida, on June 27 — REALLY expensive, because she left a $5,000 tip for the wait- ress. Initially, Wolfe told Crane the charge wasn't hers, and he reported it as fraudulent. But the restaurant had already paid the server the $5,000. Wolfe, of Buffalo, New York, was charged with grand theft after admit- ting that she was the big tipper. [Tampa Bay Times, 7/3/2019] ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 You are juggling many things, Aries.

Question: I just loved "e Cool Kids." Excellent stories that I think fans from 50 years old and up could relate to. Any possibility it will return? — Louise C. Matt Roush: Very unlikely. e show was produced by the Fox studio for the Fox network, and now that the studio has been folded into the Disney empire, the only hope is that ABC or another Disney property would sud- denly become interested in it. If that were the case, we'd probably have heard by now. Question: After all this time on "e Walking Dead," how can there still be electricity, charged car batteries, flash- lights with fresh batteries, ammunition and food? — Roger Matt Roush: You have a point, but keep in mind that much more time has passed for us in the nine years since "e Walking Dead" launched than it has for the survivors of the zombie apocalypse, whose story has spanned just about half that much time (roughly five years, according to some sites' calculations). e story still often concerns the risks the characters go through to forage for supplies and sustain themselves with food and even create their own ammo. It's a survival story as much as a horror fest, and we are getting glimpses of a civilization that has carried on even as our heroes rebuild their own world.

Fingers crossed they wind up in each other's arms. Jeers to "Big Brother 's" big mess. CBS's summer hit always seems to serve us at least one horrible house- guest, but Season 21 is really hitting new lows with the grossly offensive Jack, who either doesn't realize that the live feeds are capturing his racist, sexist comments or just doesn't care. Either way, he needs to go.
