Welp, everything is horrible! If you’re anything like us, you’re glued to the news out of Boston (I recommend the WBUR livestream, which is not as full of awful bullshit as CNN apparently is). You could use a break, some kind of good news, something easy to think about — but you can’t tear yourself away long enough to go looking for it. Well, just relax and refresh this post while you wait for more news on Twitter. We will bring you emergency cute.
