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!)

Bill Gates, billionaire and founder of Microsoft, is pointing the finger at social media companies like Facebook and Twitter for spreading misinformation about the coronavirus.

In an interview with Fast Company, Gates said: "Can the social media companies be more helpful on these issues? What creativity do we have?" Sadly, the digital tools probably have been a net contributor to spreading what I consider to be crazy ideas."

According to Gates, crazy ideas aren't just limited to the internet. They are going beyond that. He doesn't see the logic behind not protecting yourself and others from coronavirus."Not wearing masks is hard to understand, because it is not that bothersome," he explained. "It is not expensive and yet some people feel it is a sign of freedom or something, despite risk of infecting people."
