It's been a downer of a day on the Internet so far, so how about we take a break and watch this simply adorable woman learn learn that her son and his wife are having a baby.

It was filmed by the dad-to-be's brother Sunny Singh, who has quite the eclectic YouTube page, not usually featuring such wonderful things.

Her reaction is completely classic and lends itself so easily to gifs.

Singh talked to Buzzfeed about planning on filming the announcement:

I mostly film hardcore punk bands, weddings, and political protests, but I've been filming my mom being her lively self ever since I first picked up a camera. I caught wind of my brother and sister-in-law's pregnancy before they told my parents and I knew I had to be ready to document their response. Knowing my mom, I had a feeling she would react like this. Not filming it would be a huge oversight on my part!

After this, he may just have to record his mom reacting to things.

Watch it and have a lovely day.

Caitlyn Jenner introduced herself to the world on Monday by appearing on the cover of “Vanity Fair,” breaking the internet and winning practically everyone over with her new look.

And on Tuesday Mike Huckabee also started making waves online… for being a total creep.

At the National Religious Broadcasters Convention back in February, the former Arkansas governor was discussing the issue of gender identity, when he made an offensive joke that mocked people who are transgender.

“Now I wish that someone told me that when I was in high school that I could have felt like a woman when it came time to take showers in PE,” he said. “I’m pretty sure that I would have found my feminine side and said, ‘Coach, I think I’d rather shower with the girls today.'”

World Net Daily uploaded the video to YouTube this past weekend, so it just started to get national attention this week.

Any sliver of a chance he had a becoming president just went down the drain with that punchline.

Meanwhile on Twitter, the Huckabee jokes are top notch.

A dramatic rescue in Sachse, Texas quickly took a turn for the funny on Friday, when a local cop was brought on a lengthy joyride over a farm.

In the video above from FOX 4 news, the unnamed officer is airlifted by a Department of Public Safety helicopter after his car gets stuck in the rising flood waters.

The news anchors covering the event watch as he attaches himself to the harness and soars off to safety.

But once they’ve reached dry land, they don’t let him down very quickly. Instead he is taken on a 4-minute long flight across some cow-filled pastures while the world watches and the anchors laugh.

“Where are they taking him?” asks one of them, to which the other replies “It’s kind of an odd sight, isn’t it?”

They joke that maybe the extended trip was punishment for ruining a perfectly good police car.

He was eventually lowered to the ground, and will likely rise up to viral video stardom.

“He’s happy to be out and safe,” another cop named Lt. Marty Cassidy told WFAA news. “He knows he’s not going to live this down.”

Spiders have already infiltrated our bananas, and now they’re souring another of our favorite fruits.

A 21-year-old woman in Vermont was recently bitten by a black widow spider after reaching into a bag of grapes she purchased at the local Shaw’s supermarket.

That’s a whole bunch of “nope” right there.

She and her mother captured the little culprit that had crawled up her arm and brought it with them to the hospital where the woman was treated and eventually released.

The creature is identifiable by a red hourglass-shape on its belly, so if you see the mark, stay away.

Here’s the supermarket’s statement about the incident, via WPTZ:

The health and safety of products we sell, and our customers, is our first concern. We have been closely monitoring the situation and been in contact with the family. We replaced product in the customer’s refrigerator as a precaution and took immediate action to inspect the product at the customer’s store. We also are inspecting the product in all of our stores and have been in touch with the supplier, which has an extensive food safety management system in place.

While their venom is poisonous, most people just experience a pin prick followed by dull muscle pain along with other possible symptoms.

According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine:

Severe symptoms usually start to improve within 2 to 3 days, but milder symptoms may persist for several weeks. Death in a normally healthy individual is very rare. Young children, the extremely ill, and the elderly may not survive a bite.

Black widows were also found in bags of grapes in stores across several different states back in 2013.

This mast March a woman in Wales found a Brazilian Wandering Spider in her bag of bananas, which is considered the “world’s most venomous spider” by the Guinness World Records.

Other spiders have also been in the news a lot lately, particularly in Australia, where they are literally raining down from the sky as part of a phenomenon called “mass ballooning.”

Just don’t try to kill any of them, or you might end up with hundreds of even smaller spiders on your hands like this guy did.

A heroic rescue was captured on video this week as a Colombian police officer leapt into a raging river to save a small dog from drowning after a deadly mudslide ravaged the region.

The cops were searching for survivors when they noticed the animal floating down the Liboriana River, and so they started chasing after it down the bank.

The video shows one of the cops jumping in and struggling against the current before scooping it up and bringing it to safety.

He then performs CPR on the dog (including mouth-to-mouth resuscitation) to help bring it back to life.

“Principe” has since recovered from the incident and is now “in good hands,” according to the police.

A man named Connor Zuvich found a discarded, stuffed tiger on the side of the road in Washington, so he did what anyone would do and strapped it to the roof of his car.

“The thing looked really realistic,” Zuvich told The Columbian. “We were just cruising around Lacamas Lake with it.”

He and his friends drove around for a while with their new trophy when a cop pulled them over.

The officer, Henry Scott, said the police were contacted by a concerned citizen who reported a live Bengal tiger on the loose.

When he noticed it was just a stuffed animal he snapped some quick photos of the beast “to send to all his buddies,” according to Zuvich.

The cat reportedly remains on top of his car and thinks the view is just “grrrrrrreat!”

A Michigan pastor named Rev. Matthew Makela (who is married with 5 kids) resigned this week from St. John’s Lutheran Church after he was caught cruising Grindr for men.

An anonymous source sent some screenshots of some of his chats to the gay news site Queerty, who exposed his hypocrisy to the church as well as the rest of the world.

In the conversations, he says he “loves making out naked,” “oral and massage,” and he reveals that he is a “top.”

Of course he probably just meant “top Biblical scholar,” right?

As Queerty points out, outing his private gay sex life is important here, as he has been an outspoken, anti-gay voice in his church and online.

He has compared being gay to being an alcoholic, and accused the transgender movement of assisting “opportunistic sickos.”

Queerty writes:

If Makela made even one LGBT kid at St. John’s “Christ-based” elementary school, their parents, friends, family or anyone who ever stepped foot in the church feel like being true to yourself is shameful (and it seems all too likely that he did), then we’re glad to share his hypocrisy with the world.

A senior pastor at the church posted the following statement in response to the story.

“The details of sin that have been kept confidential are being posted online by those who seek to do harm to the Makela family and to St. John’s,” writes Rev. Daniel Kempin. “This is taking an already difficult situation and making it even more painful.”

His profile on the church’s website has since been deleted from their staff page, and St. John’s is telling people not to pay attention to the story. Their Facebook page has also been deleted.

It appears they are trying to erase his online presence and pretend none of it ever happened.

Because if there’s one thing to learn from all this, burying the truth is clearly the best solution.
