Dear John,

I went to my families Christmas party and had a fun time, but I discovered where my missing crock pot went from a few years ago. Back then, we had a summer picnic in a park and my crock pot turned up missing by the end of the day. Nobody in my family knew where it went. I bought a new one and moved on with my life. Last week my younger sister showed up at the family Christmas party with my crock pot. My husband told me not to say anything, so I did not confront her about it, but I want to. He said it may be a “look-alike” crock pot, but I remember a dent that mine had. This one had the same dent. I'm pretty sure it was my crock pot. Should I ask her why she took it? Should I just move on?

Signed – What-A-Crock!

Police arrested an Arizona woman after she allegedly tried to light her boyfriend on fire because he would not celebrate with her after she got hired at a Subway restaurant. 46-year-old Kathy Jones now faces charges of aggravated assault and criminal damage. According to the police report, Jones told officers she had two Smirnoff Ice alcoholic beverages and two “strong” mixed drinks that contained rum that night. Her roommate, whom she has a romantic relationship with, alleges Jones sprayed him with lighter fluid and then threw lit matches at him. The man locked her out of their home as he awaited police arrival. That's when Jones committed criminal damage to the door frame. Jones told police she did not remember how she got locked out of the home, but remembers being upset with her boyfriend after he wouldn't celebrate her hiring at Subway. She is being held on a $15,000 bond. (


Back in the spring of 1988, an odd little horror comedy titled Beetlejuice made its way into theaters, where it collected a respectable sum of money and earned pretty positive reviews. Director Tim Burton has been hesitant about making a sequel, but folks haven’t given up hope just yet. In fact, just the other week, composer Danny Elfman hinted that a follow-up might still happen, with Michael Keaton said to be interested in returning. Now a source says Warner Bros. is indeed moving forward with a Beetlejuice 2.

Wonder Woman 1984 comes to theaters June 5 and the film’s first trailer was release Sunday. Gal Gadot returns as the super hero, along with Chris Pine. Kristen Wiig and Pedro Pascal also star.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by
What began as a dispute over making a sandwich culminated a day later in gunfire and criminal charges against a Florida fast-food employee. According to Palm Beach County sheriff's investigators, 18-year-old Destin Garcia and a co-worker were at the Subway inside the Palm Springs, Florida, Walmart on Black Friday. Because of the rush, the Subway employees were allowed to make themselves a free sandwich -- but the co-worker made a wrap, which was not allowed. That angered Garcia, and he told the co-worker she would have to pay the difference between the cost of the sandwich and the wrap -- about a dollar. She walked away. Authorities say Garcia drove to the co-worker's home the next morning, where the co-worker's mom told him to leave. Investigators say Garcia pushed the woman, causing her husband to come outside. The couple told investigators that Garcia pulled a handgun, told them “Do you think it's a game?” and fired two shots near the woman's feet, causing fragments of the blacktop to strike her. The couple ran away and Garcia fled. He was arrested Sunday on aggravated assault charges and remained jailed Tuesday with bail set at $100,000. The Palm Beach County Public Defender's Office, which is representing Garcia, did not immediately return a call Tuesday seeking comment. (

MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by

A felon is back behind bars in Pasco County after deputies say he shot himself in the leg while “playing cowboy.” Deputies arrested 36-year-old Matthew Noffsinger Jr. early Saturday morning after speaking with him at a local hospital where he was being treated for a gunshot wound. According to an arrest report, Noffsinger initially told deputies he was in the woods and was shot by someone. Deputies, however, noticed he had an entrance wound and exit wound straight down his leg that was not consistent with Noffsinger’s story. He then admitted to deputies he lied and said he accidentally shot himself in the leg. According to the sheriff’s office, Noffsinger said he was “playing cowboy” with a .22 revolver when it accidentally discharged. Deputies say Noffsinger told them he lied about his story at first because he is a convicted felon and knows he was not supposed to be in possession of a firearm. During their investigation, deputies say they also found a wallet in Noffsinger’s backpack that contained four credit cards and a personal ID card that didn’t belong to him. Noffsinger was arrested and charged with felon in possession of a firearm and possession of personal information of four people. (
