Reasons To Be A Miserable Bastard On International Happiness Day

Reasons To Be A Miserable Bastard On International Happiness Day

The Debrief: Fight back against the unrealistic expectations today is putting on our emotions

Hey guys, welcome to International Happiness Day; the day that started off with a damp squid of a meteorlogical phenomenon and will probably end with you knee deep in white wine spritzers and a box of fried chicken; proof if needed that, just because the internet says you have to feel something, doesn’t mean you’re going to.

So, because we’re a nation of miserable bastards, and that’s something we pride ourselves on thank you very much, here’s a few reasons why you should fight the unrealistic expecatations put on you by this the supposed most happy day of the entire year.

Pharrell’s Happy is going to be on everywhere today
Just a quick FYI; Happy was actually released in 2013 and yet still experiences the same level of radio play as something that came out last week. You know what else came out in 2013? Musical masterpieces such as Jason Derulo Talk Dirty, Katy Perry Roar and Taylor Swift I Knew You Were Trouble. None of which we have heard in at least two weeks.

You’ll never have as much fun as these two guys

Mr T has got a new DIY show called I Pity The Tool
And no-one thought to come up with this before.

This cat is better dressed than you ever will be
