The Morning Brain Buster:

Bonehead Of The Day:

A man freaked out and attacked his mother's boyfriend with a sword over a missing can of shrimp, in Deltona, FL.

The 52-year-old boyfriend accused him of taking a can of shrimp, and they went outside to "engage in a physical fight" to solve it.

The fight never escalated, so the boyfriend went back inside to watch TV with the man's mother.

A few minutes later the son broke through the bedroom with a Samurai style metal sword. The couple calmed him down and he left the room.

He came back a short time later and started throwing knives at his mom's boyfriend. The boyfriend was able to escape unhurt through a sliding glass door.

The son was arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

N'Sync Reunion At VMA's?

The supposed 'N Sync reunion on Sunday at MTV's Video Music Awards is not a done deal.

The New York Post reported that Justin Timberlake and crew were set to perform together, but the reunion is said to still be in the planning stages.

The source said MTV approached Timberlake about some sort of reunion when it was announced he was being honored at this year's show with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award.

The insider explains, "They wanted to make sure that 'N Sync was acknowledged as a major part of Justin's success. They were together for 10 years before he went solo."

They last performed together during a televised tribute to the Bee Gees at the Grammys in 2003.

The latest rumors claimed that the reunion is just the first step to launching a comeback tour next summer.
