WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM JUNE 9-15, 2021 UCW 19 WEEKLY HOROSCOPE NEWS OF THE WEIRD by the Editors at Andrews McMeel Syndication Awesome! Four-year-old Noah of Brooklyn, New York, knows nautical nonsense when he sees it, so he went all-in on SpongeBob SquarePants Popsicles, ordering 918 of them from Amazon without his mom knowing. When 51 cases arrived, his mom panicked: Jennifer Bryant is a social work graduate student at NYU and has two other boys, The Washington Post reported. She couldn't pay the $2,618.85 bill, and Amazon wouldn't take the frozen confections back. A family friend set up a GoFundMe page, raising more than $11,000, which Noah's mom said will go toward his education. Noah is on the autism spectrum, and his mom hopes to send him to a special school. Amazon is working with the family to donate to a private charity of their choice. Weird Science Angie Yen, 27, of Brisbane, Australia, had her tonsils removed on April 19, a simple surgery that went smoothly, News.com reported. But on April 28, she started singing and noticed something unusual about her voice. "I was singing in a different sound and also talking words in a funny accent," Yen said. A friend agreed that her accent suddenly sounded Irish and told her about FAS, foreign accent syndrome. Yen went to the hospital, but doctors told her to go home and see if the new accent would disappear in a few days. Weeks later, the brogue remains. Yen is scheduled for an MRI and a visit with a neurologist. "If they find something hopefully there is a cure or treatment for it." Bright Idea Here's one way to keep your neighbors at a distance: Build a wall made of cow dung. In Lodi Township, Michigan, one farmer constructed a 250-foot-long wall of manure after disputing a property line with Wayne Lam- barth. The wall generates an un- pleasant stench, Lambarth told Fox News, but the farmer who built it denies it's a "poop wall." "It's a compost fence," he said. Officials in the area have said nothing can be done about it be- cause it is on private property. Question: Why do regular TV shows keep moving over to streaming? I wish they would just end. For ex- ample: "e Orville" went to, what, Hulu? "Zoey" might go to Peacock. ere are too many services to get them all, and I am afraid to pick one, because I will just get mad if my show ended up on another one. — Jeff B. Matt Roush: I hear this a lot! We're quite clearly in a transitional mo- ment that's only going to become more frustrating as network con- glomerates shift their assets among their broadcast, cable and stream- ing platforms, which they see as their future. We're still waiting for a premiere date for "e Orville," which has been MIA for two years already. I understand the frustra- tion, but I can't sign on to wishing the shows would just die if there's a pipeline to keep them going for a few more seasons. Eventually, these episodes might be available in a format that wouldn't force you to subscribe to a streaming service, and this trajectory is only going to become more common.

Prime Video's take on Mark Millar's comic-books hits differently than most live-action adaptations, thanks to its fascinat- ing focus on how aging do-gooders played by Josh Duhamel, Leslie Bibb (American Housewife) and Ben Daniels (e Crown) came to be ... and how they may have failed their own families along the way. Jeers to Leading Men we love who are leaving us. First, Regé-Jean Page exited Netflix's "Bridgerton" fol- lowing the steamy first season that made him a hot commodity, and now eo James won't be returning as "Sanditon's" Sidney Parker after the canceled PBS period drama got a surprise renewal.
