"Internet," you say, "cure my case of the grumpies."

Seek and ye shall receive, Chicagoist reader.

Maybe that pooch above, whom photographer Lauri (aka Insomnia Jones) says is named "Fuggles," will do the trick. Or maybe the saga of a toast bandit who puts bread under the hood of people's cars will bring a smile to your face. We don't care if it's real--we're assuming it's not, actually--but what a funny little story. Aspiring Sundance entrants, you have found your short film's narrative. But if neither of those can turn your frown upside down, just admit that deep down, we're all 12 years old. You know you laughed at that. Poorly rendered wiener drawings are just funny.
