WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM JULY 21-27, 2021 UCW 19 WEEKLY HOROSCOPE NEWS OF THE WEIRD by the Editors at Andrews McMeel Syndication Unclear on the Concept A woman from West Yorkshire, England, called in sick to work so that she could attend the Euro semifinal soccer game in London on July 7, Metro News reported. Nina Farooqi thought her company would be short- staffed that day and wouldn't let her off. When her photos popped up on the BBC, her employer called and said not to bother coming in the next day. "I didn't get any sympathy at all. We're through to the final, I'm still on that high, but I've also lost my job," Farooqi said. "I'd do it all over again. Football is my life." Latest Religious Message? In Los Angeles on July 7, an unidentified man climbed atop the St. Mary's Catholic Church bell tower and set fire to a cross, then eluded police as he jumped from roof to roof and rappelled down buildings, Fox News reported. The man, shirtless and missing one sock, also used wires above the area to climb up buildings. Finally, police caught up with him and he was transferred to a local hospital. Drunk Buffalo The RTE reported on July 7 that three farmers in the Gujarat state of India were arrested for selling alcohol, and their buffalo gave them away. Police said the animals were acting "strangely and their mouths started froth- ing," so one of the men called the veterinarian. The vet took a look at the water trough where the buffalo had been drinking and noticed the water was col- ored and had a "strange smell." Turns out the farmers had hid- den their moonshine bottles at the bottom, but some had broken. The buffalo were drunk. The vet informed police, who raided the farm and confiscated 100 bottles of alcohol. New World Order In Tokyo, an enormous 3D calico cat is towering over the street, CBS News reported. Every few minutes, the cat appears, flicking its tail, meowing and licking its lips. The feline, cre- ated by digital marketing firm Cross Space, has gained 17,000 followers on its Twitter account and can be seen in a livestream on YouTube. Question: Can you tell me why "Ce- lebrity Dating Game" gets a prime- time slot when the great shows "All Rise" and "Rebel" are canceled? — Jean Matt Roush: Silly and inexpensive summer filler like this has nothing to do with network decisions about more costly scripted programming that is underperforming. is was a very tough season for shows on the bubble, and as the networks con- tinue to struggle with declining real- time viewership and ad revenue, we're likely to see more corny and cheap TV. Question: When is the season finale of "Walker?" — Sandra R. Matt Roush: Currently scheduled for August 12. To submit questions to TV Critic Matt Roush, go to: tvinsider.com. By Damian Holbrook Cheers to Prime video for sending us into a "Panic." e streamer's ad- aptation of Lauren Oliver's young- adult thriller novel hits every nerve as a group of high schoolers face a series of fear-inducing dares ar- ranged by some twisted adults for a chance to escape their failing Texas town. It's like "Friday Night Lights" meets "e Hunger Games!" Jeers to "Clarice" for being silenced by stalled negotiations. e CBS thriller centered on" Silence of the Lambs" heroine Clarice Starling (Rebecca Breeds) was set to shuffle over to streamer Paramount+ for Season 2. Now, thanks to some boneheaded behind-the- scenes snafu with the network and copro- ducer MGM, this promising proper- ty looks as doomed as one of serial killer Buffalo Bill's victims. Jeers to "e View" for losing sight of what Meghan McCain brought to the table. No matter your politics, the conservative co-host spoke for a certain portion of the audience and certainly gave us all something to talk about. With her planned exit at the end of this season, Hot Topics will be a little less fiery. ARIES - March 21/April 20 You are inspired to study a new culture after reading about it in the news, Aries.
