108 min.

Everything is horrible. Sometimes you just have to laugh. Hopefully, these short films will help. From the innocently quirky, to the infinitely bizarre, there’s something here to lift the spirits of even the most miserable of bastards. Because no matter how bad you have it, there’s always someone out there who has it far worse. And we can laugh at them. Empathy is great and all, but the sooner you admit that good humor is always at someone’s expense, the more fun you’ll have. Not just here, but in life in general.

– Kevin Monahan
