SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

Would you consider getting a tattoo of your pet? Half of us would, according to a survey. A study of 2,000 cat and dog owners (in the US) found that 25% would consider getting a tattoo of their current pet — while 25% are already planning to get one. What’s more, another 16% of those polled ALREADY have a pet-themed tattoo on their body. But ink’s not the only way to immortalize a furry friend. The survey also found that 42% of pet owners own at least one item depicting an animal that resembles their pet, and 44% own something with an actual picture of their pet printed on it – most often an article of clothing (21%). Other fun findings about our furry friends:

36% of pet owners have a dedicated social media account for their pet.

60% of pet owners said they believe their cat or dog has what it takes to become a viral sensation.

68% of pet parents believe that they’re more obsessed with theirs, compared to other pet lovers.

55% have conversations with their pet when no one else is around, and . . .

48% have told their pet a secret they’ve never told anyone else.

Other people’s body odor could help reduce your social anxiety, according to a new study. Although it seems unappealing, researchers from the Karolinska Institute in Sweden discovered that exposure to the stink of human “chemo-signals” reduced social anxiety by nearly 40% when accompanied by mindfulness therapy. The lead researcher said: “Our state of mind causes us to produce molecules (or chemo-signals) in sweat, which communicate our emotional state and produce corresponding responses in the receivers.”

Robert Downey Jr. is reportedly set to star in a remake of Alfred Hitchcock’s psychological thriller “Vertigo”. Paramount Pictures is planning to remake the 1958 classic, with the “Iron Man” star and his wife Susan to produce. The 57-year-old Avenger would play James Stewart’s original role, with “Peaky Blinders” creator Steven Knight tapped to write a new screenplay. No word on who might star in the female role, originally played by Kim Novak.

Jonathan Majors is facing criminal charges. The “Creed III” star has been charged with assault and harassment following his arrest in New York over the weekend. Police were called to an apartment over a “domestic dispute,” in which a 30-year-old woman was allegedly assaulted. He has been charged with multiple counts of assault in the third degree, as well as 3 counts of attempted assault in the third degree, and counts of aggravated harassment in the second degree and harassment in the second degree. Police said that the woman, who has not been named, was taken to hospital with minor head and neck injuries.

John Wick: Chapter 4” made a killing at the box office in its first weekend — and its studio, Lionsgate, is hungry for more. CEO Joe Drake told Deadline: “We’re not ready to say goodbye to Keanu with this franchise.” Here’s the thing (***spoiler alert!): His remarks come despite a clear-cut ending for the title character in the 4th film. Drake says, though, that after watching “Chapter 4” 5 times in the past week, that there are “a lot of different things that we can do” to continue the series and still include Reeves. Little wonder: The latest Wick film scored a franchise-record box office take of $137.5 million worldwide in its first weekend, and a 95% score on Rotten Tomatoes.

Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson, the Oscar-winning director of “Summer of Soul,” will direct a remake of Disney’s “The Aristocats”. Similar to “Sonic the Hedgehog” and “Space Jam: A New Legacy,” the adaptation of “The Aristocats” will blend live action with CGI. Questlove, the drummer of the Roots, is also executive producing and overseeing music for the film.

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by

A cat from Virginia was reunited with her owner after she went missing for 9 years.

Southern Mexico had 6 earthquakes over 4-magnitude in a one week period.

A survey found that one in 4 North American women has never married.

University of Texas researchers claim to be closer to developing a drug that spurs weight loss – without the need for exercise. In theory, people could one day chow down on whatever they want without added health risks and weight gain. In tests using mice, the scientists discovered that the drug curbed weight gain from foods high in sugar and fat, which are prevalent in the Western diet.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

We hope this venture works out for them. A brand-new gallery dedicated to retail objects that bombed opened this month in New York. The Museum of Failure collects “failed products and services from around the world,” offering what it calls a “fascinating learning experience” into failed innovation. Featured are about 160 retail items that didn’t catch on, including the much-reviled Google Glass (remember that?), and the ill-fated DeLorean car, made famous by the “Back to the Future” movies. What other things come to mind that you’d expect to see at a ‘museum of failure’? How about New Coke? Or the 2003 Nokia N-Gage smartphone, which, despite its failure in the US, helped jump-start Finland’s mobile gaming industry. Also on display: Bic for Her pens, which were released in 2011 – their only difference from other writing instruments was they were in sparkly, bright colors. The exhibit runs through May, with a possible extension into June – provided it goes over more successfully than the things featured inside.

A veterinarian assistant has shared a series on TikTok of what “warning signs” for different dog breeds would look like. Throughout the 3-part series, an AI voice narrates the warnings for each breed while a photo of the pooches is displayed. Here they are…

Pitbull: You wanted a big tough dog, but they’ll mostly just be itching their skin off.

Bulldog: You’ll be cleaning crevices for the rest of their life.

Cavalier King Charles: All we see when you walk into the clinic is a time bomb of heart failure. (Ouch!)

German Shepherd: Invest in training or be ready to pay for sedatives for all doctor visits.

Australian Cattle Dog: Similar to Border Collies but with a touch of murderous intent and on crack.

Border Collie: How ever much exercise you think this dog needs, multiply that by 10.

Doberman: Can go from cinnamon roll to psychopath in an instant.

Beagle: Oscar winning drama queens with the pipes of an opera singer.

Corgi: Similar to the other herding dogs here but with a Napoleon Complex.”
