WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM APRIL 8-14, 2020 UCW 19 WEEKLY HOROSCOPE NEWS OF THE WEIRD by the Editors at Andrews McMeel Syndication Signs of the apocalypse (as if we needed more) Steward Gatt, also known as Stewy the Snake Catcher, was summoned to a yard in Ardeer, Victoria, Austra- lia, in mid-March, where he bagged up a female tiger snake in order to relocate it in the wild. But when Gatt opened the bag a short time later, he discovered the snake had given birth to several offspring — one of which had two heads. According to United Press International, Gatt took the snakes to Direct Vet Services and had them checked over. The usual one-headed babies were fine, but the two-headed specimen had to be euthanized; "... these animals are not generally viable, so it was euthanized on humane grounds," the clinic posted on its Facebook page. Mom and babies were returned to the wild according to plan. Oops Vicar Simon Beach, 61, of St. Budeaux Parish Church in Plym- outh, England, was uncomfortable enough as he launched into his first virtual church service on March 22, calling it "surreal." But as he leaned into the camera to deliver the final portion of his sermon, he looked to his left and calmly deadpanned, "Oh dear, I've just caught fire." Beach had leaned a bit too close to one of several nearby candles and ignited his sleeve. "I just felt my arm getting a bit hot," he told Metro News. The flame damaged his sweater and shirt, but did not burn his skin. Beach was teased a bit by fellow vicars, who razzed him for being "on fire for Jesus." "People have laughed and laughed, really," Beach said. Awesome! In Richfield, Wisconsin, neighbors Eric Trzcinski and Trevor Reinke have missed sharing a beer while they are socially isolating. So Trzcin- ski came up with a novel idea: He's a car guy and happened to have a spare exhaust tip that was the perfect size to hold a bottle of beer. Using zip ties, he strapped the tip to a remote control car, then dropped a bottle of Corona (yes, on purpose) into the pipe. He called Reinke, told him to start videotaping, and Reinke caught the little delivery as it zoomed across a busy street and up his driveway, delivering the cold brew into his hands. Trzcinski's Facebook post featuring the video racked up more than 5 million views, he told FOX6 News on March 24. Question: Because the coronavirus has forced "Supernatural" to shut down pro- duction, will we ever get to see the last two episodes? — Justin Matt Roush: is industry shutdown is unprecedented in so many ways, and there's no way to predict at this point how things will play out on a number of fronts. It is unthinkable that "Supernatu- ral" of all series won't ever get to film its final episodes, but it has already affected the immediate scheduling of episodes, so it's unclear just when the remaining episodes will air. Nonetheless, I'd expect "Supernatural" to gear up again as soon as is safely possible and get these final episodes in the can and on the air with- out undue delay. As executive producer Andrew Dabb tweeted, "We, the CW and Warner Bros. fully intend to return and finish the series. It's not a matter of if, it's a matter of when." Question: I saw that there are 3 episodes left of "Manifest." Does that mean all were filmed before the work stoppage? — Fred Matt Roush: Yes, as a midseason show with a shorter episode order, "Manifest" will run to the end of its season as ex- pected without interruption. A number of shows signing off before May, includ- ing the series finale of "Modern Family" in April, were able to wrap production before the shutdown. To submit questions to TV Critic Matt Roush, go to: tvinsider.com. By Damian Holbrook Cheers to "Nancy Drew" for uncover- ing the secret to shocking us all. Just as e CW's wildly entertaining update of the literary gumshoe closed the case of Dead Lucy with a tragic twist, they snuck in a whopper of a WHAT?! by re- vealing that Nancy (Kennedy McMann) was actually the late townie's secret offspring. It's no mystery why fans are loving this one. Jeers to the "Tiger King's" maul rats. Instead of focusing on the pack of shady, drugged-out lowlifes involved in bringing down zoo-owning oddity Joe Exotic, Netflix's docu-series could have done his menagerie of caged cats a solid by shedding more light on the abuse that goes on at these roadside atrocities.
