WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM APRIL 15-21, 2020 UCW 19 WEEKLY HOROSCOPE NEWS OF THE WEIRD by the Editors at Andrews McMeel Syndication Annals of isolation Donuts Delite in Rochester, New York, has found a special way to pay tribute to immunologist Dr. Antho- ny Fauci. Since March 23, the shop has been printing Dr. Fauci's image on thin, edible paper, then applying it to the buttercream frosting on its doughnuts. Nick Semeraro, franchi- see of the shop, told the Democrat & Chronicle: "He's on TV giving us the facts; you've got to respect that. ... People are buying them like crazy. We're making more right now." The doc doughnuts go for $20 per dozen, curbside pickup and deliv- ery available. Discovery Friends Callum Gow, Josh Gross- man and Carson Schiefner in Brit- ish Columbia, Canada, all in their early 20s, decided a hike away from more heavily traveled trails near Alouette Lake would be a good way to maintain social distance on March 20. There have long been rumors of a stash of gold hidden in the area, but the treasure they dis- covered was completely different: a secret camp, including supplies, that hadn't been touched for almost 30 years. "It was almost like one of those time capsules that you run into," Schiefner told the CBC. The hikers found sealed boxes, a radio, a Coleman stove, first aid supplies, a knife, tobacco and, apropos to cur- rent day, a big roll of toilet paper. A log book revealed the camp had been used from 1986 until 1991, and through social media, the hik- ers managed to find some of the original campers, including Rick Senft. He explained that a group of friends calling themselves the B.C. Weirdness Federation set up the camp, but "life gets in the way" and they gathered there less and less. "They're probably some of the best years I had," he reminisced. Can't win A tractor-trailer crash and sub- sequent fire near Dallas on April 1 lay waste to an entire load of a hot commodity in these bizarre times: toilet paper. The Associated Press reported the driver was unharmed, but the TP "burned extensively" and spilled over the interstate, which had to be closed to traffic. The truck was hauling the large rolls typically used in business restrooms. Question: In the "is Is Us" season fina- le, Kate and Toby were not present at the birth of their grandchild. Your thoughts? — Mel Matt Roush: I'm conditioned by now to accept the fact that these flash-forwards tease out the information slowly, so I'm betting there's a reason the older ver- sions of Kate and Toby weren't depicted in that scene. I imagine the more we learn about the adult version of Baby Jack, we'll discover more about how Fu- ture Kate and Toby fit into his life. Question: How do you think the corona- virus will affect renewals? Popular shows already had multiple seasons picked up, but what about some of the newer shows, like "Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist?" — Marissa Matt Roush: It's obviously an uncertain time for the industry (and everywhere else). ere is a school of thought that anything that's currently on the air and with any sort of media and fan support stands a better chance than usual of getting picked up because so much else is in limbo. If you're a fan of "Zoey" (as I clearly am, if you've been reading my weekly updates), it probably wouldn't hurt to reach out pro-actively to NBC via social media or however you choose to communicate. Of all the midseason shows I've sampled, "Zoey" is the one I'm most keen to see given a chance to grow. To submit questions to TV Critic Matt Roush, go to: tvinsider.com. By Damian Holbrook Cheers to "Top Chef" for firing up a well-seasoned All Stars edition. With the endless buffet of bad world news, there is no better palate cleanser than watching "Chef " vets like Bryan Volt- aggio and Lee Anne Wongresharpen their culinary chops. Jeers to "Bull" for charging ahead with an ill-advised storyline. Days into the coronavirus pandemic, the CBS proce- dural ran an episode that saw trial con- sultant Jason Bull (Michael Weatherly) help defend a doctor linked to a series of anthrax attacks on New York. Nobody would have called bull if y'all had run a repeat instead. ARIES - March 21/April 20 Hang on to a source of real empowerment in your career, Aries.
