Get Happy!

The NYT reports that the UAE is getting all Bhutan-y these days, creating a new ministry, the ministry of Happiness!  Even funnier, there’s also a new ministry of Tolerance. I can only assume the actual mission of these ministries is to stamp out any green shoots of happiness or tolerance that might possibly arise inside their borders.

Maybe their first act will be to execute the guy with the red keffiyeh!

In all seriousness, the ministry of happiness will have its work cut out for it as the UAE is already reported to be the 20th most happy country in the world!! They just need to climb above #11 Israel to become the happiest country in the region.
