POP Goes America’s Happiest City

Last week, this report found that Richmond Va. is America's happiest city.

While that may be debatable, we'll test the limits of happiness tonight to see if it is, in fact, possible to be TOO happy, and if being TOO happy is even enjoyable.

My guess is only the PUREST of hearts will be able to sustain the level of happiness required to live in America's happiest city for 2 solid hours.

The rest of you, those with less than pure hearts, will not be able to handle the kind of happiness we here in RVA take for granted on a daily basis, and your weak, feeble, and clearly inferior hearts will, indeed, EXPLODE!
