Normally, I’d use Saturday afternoon to post a gripey list about all the horrible things that happened in pop culture this week and suggest cocktails with which to wash the bad memories down. However, what happened this week in Boston has put some things into perspective. While I’ll never stop being a complainer, it seems appropriate and necessary to make Unhappy Hour a little happy this week. It’s time to find the little bright spots in what proved to be a very bleak week for Boston and for the rest of the world.

Let the happy commence!

1. Lil Bub’s (above) movie premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York, so you know that cute little cat is about to be all over our news feeds and (fingers crossed) televisions for at least the next week. 

2. Patton Oswalt is a wonderful human and we love him. Just look at the amazing letter he wrote for Boston. Then he follows it up with not one, but two, hilarious pop culture parodies. Love that guy.

4. We now know what Henry Cavill’s Superman looks like without a shirt. (There’s also more details about what’s going on in Man of Steel, or something.)
