Post here if you see something random, unexpected or comical that brightened your day and put a spring in your step :-)

Here's one I saw this afternoon...

Somebody had scrawled a tiny "They Live!" in red marker pen on the underside of the roof of the bus shelter near my house.

I don't know quite why, but it made me happy.

These were from a few days ago and I posted them on the youtube finds thread but I think they meet the criteria here.

 Rail planes. Why didn't they catch on? Love loony inventions like that. That crazy rocket powered mono-wheel they developed in WW2 springs to mind.

I was referring to the deaf lady and the old chap with the microscopic jukebox thing but yeah rail planes are smart.

 I'd seen the first clip before but not the old guy listening to music one. Amazing video but I'd need a control subject, because listening to Cab Calloway would make anybody feel better ;-)

I saw a rabbit walking through my living room, then remembered I was tripping.

It's pathetic really but this made me laugh 'til it hurt... and that ^ looks only slightly less complicated than a Virgin Trains loo.

Anywho ..... since the topic seems to be revolving even in this thread, I was quite sick and my daughter went to the Keurig machine and made me a caramel cappuccino.

My 9 year old barrista .... watching after her dad.  Warms the soul.
