The Most Happy

happy-danish-womanSocial scientists have created a World Map of Happiness by studying the overall life happiness of hundreds of thousands of people around the globe.

Because you’ve had them removed.

Voluntarily.

It’s the best way to ensure your championship status. Now, no one will have an uglier face than you! 🙂

Oprah’s response?

Wowee-kazowee!

The American Smile

When we smile at someone, we expect them to smile back.

No matter what country we’re in.

Smiling is the universal symbol for friendliness. Right?

Wrong.

As it turns out, smiling is quite cultural.
