Don’t Worry, Be Happy

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The economy and job market are crappy, but at least people’s livers haven’t been replaced by doughnuts.

That’s a bit of wacky wisdom from Pat Mellon, co-author of Be Happy That...This Book Isn’t Coated In Poison – Plus 100 Other Reasons To Cheer Up (Clarkson Potter), out today (Oct. 13).

According to Mellon, people are way too down about “the little things,” so he’s made a list to make folks see that things aren’t so bad.

For example, Debbie Downers should be happy that doctors don’t consult Magic 8-Balls when diagnosing ailments.

Mellon says, “We take it for granted that all beaches aren’t made of quicksand. There are reasons to be happy, even when things seem awful.”

He jokes that doctors should consider prescribing the silly read to emo kids, goths, and anyone who’s down in the dumps, maybe paired with a couple Xanax to ensure a happy outcome.
