Smile! Creepy Hat Forces You To Grin At All Times

Just what we all need—a hat that makes us smile. Constantly. It’s called “The Happiness Hat” (obviously) and you either smile in it or suffer the consequences—literally, from a jolt of pain it inflicts upon you. For some reason I don’t think Bright-Sided author Barbara Ehrenreich would be feeling this contraption—because as she sees it, we are a nation of anti-depressant-popping, cheerfulness-obsessed, unrealistic folks who prize a happy outlook above all else. But back to the hat: It literally jabs you in the back of the head with a metal spike when you frown! Check out this ridiculous video of it exacting revenge on some non-smiler. Spooky.
