Comedy Goldmine often finds humor in dark material, such as awful weddings, embarrassing injuries, human oddities, and workplace jerks. And that's fine. It's certainly fair to mock mankind's foibles and follies, especially because most people are idiots. But every once in a while, we like to spotlight a different kind of theme, something that's adorable and makes people smile instead of cringing or saying "that's me, oh my god, my life." This time, the heartwarming, non-judgmental thread in question is called ... "You Look Like An Idiot." It's kind of like the old "wake up your cat"/"dress up your cat" exercises, but with a broader range of animals and situations. Thanks to Pet Island for sharing these pics, and thank you, Internet, for not affixing stupid captions to any of them.

Yes, it's the perfect form for surviving a car crash. But it's also the perfect form for so much more, like surviving the trauma of reading any news headline in 2016.
