Occasionally falling asleep at work is par for the course, according to a new survey by sleep wellness company Sleep Doctor. 46% of respondents said they nap during the workday at least a few times a year. 33% nap weekly. That breaks down like this: 9% nap at work once per week, 18% several times per week – and 6% daily. The most popular place for an employee siesta was found to be their vehicle (50%), followed by their desk (33%), a company-designated napping place (20%), returning home (14%), and the bathroom (9%).

The Minnesota Twins’ AAA affiliate is standing firm on its decision to name its live pig mascot “OzemPig” – even after a number of fans squealed in protest. The St. Paul Saints, known for their tomfoolery, traditionally employ young pigs to help out with delivering game balls to umpires. The team hosts an annual contest to come up with a silly name for each animal. Past winners include ‘Ham Solo’ and ‘Notorious P.I.G.’ This year’s winner, Ozempig, beat out candidates like ‘Porky Blinders’ and ‘Sloppenheimer’, but some felt that the reference to the popular weight-loss drug was a form of fat-shaming.


An Atlanta-based casting company has dropped “Tulsa King” in the wake of allegations that Sylvester Stallone and a director disparaged some background actors who were working on the Paramount+ drama. Rose Locke Casting was hired to find actors for the second season of the Taylor Sheridan series. But apparently the working conditions soon became fodder on a private Facebook page for background actors. Stallone and an unnamed director were accused of calling some of the extras “ugly,” “tub of lard” and “fat guy with cane.” A source close to the show said they are looking into the matter.

A federal judge has shot down a copyright lawsuit brought by the heirs to the author of a 1983 magazine article that inspired the original “Top Gun” movie, rejecting their claim that Paramount Pictures should have renegotiated the licensing agreement before making its sequel. The plaintiffs are the heirs of Ehud Yonay, who wrote an article titled “Top Guns” for California Magazine, only to see it made into a blockbuster film 3 years later, where he was credited. The judge ruled that nothing in the sequel is materially similar to the now 40-plus-year-old magazine article.

Robert Downey Jr. isn’t closing the door on the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Even though ‘Iron Man’ met his demise in 2019’s “Avengers: Endgame”, that hasn’t stopped rumors from circulating that Downey might return. Speaking to Esquire, Downey was asked if he would ever return to the MCU now that he is an Academy Award winner. And he didn’t hesitate, saying: “Happily. It’s too integral a part of my DNA.” But Kevin Feige, the president of Marvel Studios, said in December that Downey’s Iron Man will not return because it would ruin his perfect exit in Endgame, and “we would never want to magically undo it in any way.”

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by

Taco Bell has picked a fight with McDonald’s over who offers a better breakfast.

Just over a year ago, a 27-year-old British man who goes by the nickname, the “Hardest Geezer,” began jogging from the southernmost point of Africa – trying to become becoming the first person ever to run the entire length of the continent. And on Sunday, he finished! Russ Cook reached Tunisia, the northernmost point of Africa, and was cheered on by the fans he picked up while posting about his 9,941-mile (16,000km) journey on social media. In 352 days, he ran the equivalent of 376 marathons across 16 countries — and only went missing in the jungle of the Democratic Republic of the Congo once. He used his run to raise over £600,000 (US$760,000) for 2 charities. His comment after taking a dip in the ocean: “It was good. I’m a bit tired.”

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

McDonald’s customers in Canada who have made a habit of combining their favourite foods from the restaurant (which has become a thing), will soon get to see some of them become official menu items. McD’s announced its new “Remix” line this week, offering up 3 limited-time sandwiches and a reimagined McFlurry – complete with a 1980s commercial jingle ‘remixed’ by rapper Lil Yachty. The new “Remix” menu options:

Chicken Cheeseburger: A crispy chicken patty and a beef patty, topped cheese, pickle, onions, ketchup and mustard.

Surf ‘N Turf Burger: 2 beef patties and a Filet-O-Fish patty. Also topped with cheese, pickles, onions, ketchup and mustard.

The Sweet Chili Junior Chicken, which adds a sweet chili Thai sauce to the regular Junior Chicken, which the restaurant calls its “most-hacked” item.

The Apple Pie McFlurry, a McFlurry filled with apple pie and caramel.

A spokesperson said the Remix menu line “is tapping into what customers and what fans are already doing today and just making it official and having fun with it.” Last year, McDonald’s Canada offered a Chicken Big Mac that customers had long assembled themselves. LINK:

THE LIST: Brought to you by


According to digital expert Vincent Iachetta Jr., president of digital marketing agency Peppermonkey Media…

Your romantic situation: Revealing too much about your romantic life can make you vulnerable to unwanted attention and harassment.

Your Nightlife: Sharing details about your partying habits can have severe repercussions. Beyond damaging your reputation, posting TMI about your drinking habits or possible drug use can jeopardize future job opportunities.

Your location: Telling the world your real-time location makes you susceptible to physical harm, stalking, or burglary. It also may reveal sensitive information about your daily routines or habits.

Your home address and contact info: Refrain from giving out this info in public forums. Doing so could make you vulnerable to physical harm, harassment, spam, and unwanted solicitations.

Your birthdate: Like some other info, your birthdate can give criminals an open window to your life…possibly allowing them to impersonate you or access your accounts.

Your tickets: Don’t upload pics or details about your tickets to events or travel plans. This can invite counterfeiters or thieves to target you. It could also lead to identity theft.

Confidential work info: Use extra caution, in order to prevent data breaches, which could lead to all kinds of problems. Post as little as possible about the day-to-day workings of your company and nothing about specific processes.

Intimate photos: Well, duh! But you should even avoid sharing them in private messages – even if they’re encrypted. Someone could still access and distribute them.
