WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM APRIL 29-MAY 5, 2020 UCW 19 WEEKLY HOROSCOPE NEWS OF THE WEIRD by the Editors at Andrews McMeel Syndication Desperate measures Olive Veronesi, 93, of Seminole, Pennsylvania, wasn't shy about letting loved ones know what she needed during the lockdown. "I need more beer!" read a sign she held up, along with a can of Coors Light. A relative posted Veronesi's photo to social media, KDKA re- ported, and her predicament went viral. "I have a beer every night. ... I was on my last 12 cans. You know what, beer has vitamins in it. It's good for you, only don't overdo it," Veronesi said. On April 13, she got her wish: Molson Co- ors delivered 10 cases of her fa- vorite brew to her front door. Her new sign reads, "Got more beer!" Buried treasure A man in Heckmondwike, West Yorkshire, England, set out to build a deck in his back garden in early April and uncovered a mystery. As John Brayshaw, 40, began digging post holes, he un- earthed an automobile buried on its side, Yahoo News UK re- ported. "I thought it was an old air raid shelter at first, then I saw the roof," Brayshaw said. "Then I kept digging and saw the door, the steering wheel and realized it was a full car, complete with the registration plate. The only thing that was missing was the wheels." Brayshaw, who has owned the home for about six months, be- lieves the 1955/56 Ford predates the previous owners, who resided in the home 50 years. Ewwwww A new study has found the pres- ence of a parasitic worm called Anisakis, or herring worms, in raw or undercooked seafood has increased 283-fold since the 1970s. Study co-author Chelsea Wood, assistant professor in the University of Washington's School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences, said most people who've eaten the worms think they have food poi- soning. The symptoms are much the same, she told United Press International, and they disappear after the worm in a few days. But the worms can reach 0.8 inches in length and are visible to the naked eye, Wood noted. While fish processors and sushi chefs are adept at removing the worms, she suggested cutting sushi in half and inspecting each piece if you're concerned. Question: My wife and I love CBS's "Car- ol's Second Act." Will it be returning? — Charlie Matt Roush: Not this season; the show has already finished its full 18-episode first-season run. It hasn't been picked up yet for a second, but that doesn't mean it won't be. "Carol" falls in that hazy "on the bubble" category of being neither hit nor flop, but with Patricia Heaton's track re- cord, it would be something of a surprise if it didn't come back. Question: What do you think of the new "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?" Matt Roush: ABC couldn't have picked a more perfect time to revive "Millionaire" for as long as it lasts. is kind of diver- sion is so welcome right now, and Jimmy Kimmel's style of sarcastic support plays very nicely in the format. e questions seem a bit easier, but that may also be a function of the show spending so much time on each of them, except the super- easy ones. What I mostly noticed, espe- cially after becoming more devoted than ever to the faster-paced "Jeopardy!" dur- ing this shut-in period, was how slowly "Millionaire" moves. I'm happy to watch contestants work out their deliberations, but when it stretches on, I can't help wishing there were a bit of a shot clock, though not as quick as during the phone- a-friend segment. Still, I'm sure I'll keep watching — albeit on the DVR so I can fast-forward when necessary. To submit questions to TV Critic Matt Roush, go to: tvinsider.com. By Damian Holbrook Cheers to "Will & Grace" for loving on Lucille Ball. e NBC comedy sa- luted "I Love Lucy" with its epic April 9 outing that saw Grace (Debra Messing), Karen (Megan Mullally) and even Jack (Sean Hayes) enact bits of the redhead's iconic comedy. Even better than a shot of Vitamea- tavegamin? Ball's daughter Lucie Arnaz guest starred! Jeers to "e Good Doctor" for pull- ing the plug on Melendez. e tat- tooed surgeon (Nicholas Gonzalez) has had our pulses racing since day one of the ABC hit, so it broke our hearts to see him flatline after being injured in Season 3's earthquake finale.
