Don’t ask Leslie Horton to bring an hors d’oeuvre to your holiday party.
The Global News anchor nearly sent her colleagues to the trash can when she made them try an awful homemade artichoke dip on the air. Meteorologist Jordan Witzel was Horton’s first victim.

Either way, there's no doubt we can learn from the false stories that started it all.
