Be Happy Or Feel The Pain

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Don’t worry, be happy – or else.

Design student Lauren McCarthy wants the world to be happy even if it takes brute force, so she’s invented the Happiness Hat.

The knit cap has a sensor that sticks to the cheek that detects when a person is smiling. If the sensor feels a frown, the hat sticks a sharp metal rod into the back of the wearers head until they smile again.

McCarthy says smiling is a “really simple action” that not only affects a person’s mood, but also the mood of others around them, so folks should make the effort to spread joy.

Those who don’t should be “reminded” to not be such Debbie Downers, even if takes a little pain.

She admits the hat an “exaggerated” reaction to sour people, but is still a way for folks to acknowledge their terrible mood and find a way to fix it.
