31 Days of Happiness Countdown: 'Billy on the Street' asks a hilarious question. (Day 7)

Hello and welcome to Day 7 of Upworthy's 31 Days of Happiness Countdown! Each day between Dec. 1 and Dec. 31, we're sharing stories we hope will bring joy, smiles, and laughter into our lives and yours. It's been a challenging year for a lot of us, so why not end it on a high note with a bit of happiness? Check back tomorrow for another installment!

Life is full of tough choices. Chicken or beef? Paper or plastic? To be or not to be?


But there is perhaps no choice more agonizing than the one former TruTV host Billy Eichner posed to one oddly blasé New Yorker last December on a sidewalk outside Manhattan's Madison Square Park:

"Rizzoli or Isles?"

I don't want to ruin the surprise, so I'll only preface the two minutes of sheer delight you're about to experience with the following:

1. You don't have to be a fan of the eponymous recently canceled, long-running TNT crime drama (because ... honestly, who was?) to enjoy the mildly NSFW game show segment.

2. In fact, it's probably better if you weren't.

3. The best part is watching both Eichner and his guest try their hardest not to laugh — and fail.

4. Wait for the prize at the end. You won't be disappointed.

5. If you're anything like me, it will make you giggle like a baby.

Happy holidays, Isles. (A: Rizzoli!)

Need a mood boost to help you sail through the weekend? Here are 10 moments that brought joy to our hearts and a smile to our faces this week. Enjoy!

1. How much does this sweet little boy adore his baby sister? So darn much.

Oh, to be loved with this much enthusiasm! The sheer adoration on his face. What a lucky little sister.

2. Teens raise thousands for their senior trip, then donate it to their community instead.

When it came time for Islesboro Central School's Class of 2021 to pick the destination for their senior class trip, the students began eyeing a trip to Greece or maybe even South Korea. But in the end, they decided to donate $5,000 they'd raised for the trip to help out their community members struggling in the wake of the pandemic instead.
