“This is a practical joke, right?”

It's sad (pun/black humour intended) that before I clicked the "happiest man" link I thought "So, he's a congenital idiot, right?"
The actual story is much, much better. I hang my cynical head in shame.

The article on the happiest man reads like an Onion piece. There's such a light humor to it that you wonder if maybe they're having you on. It's very charming!
