Often it signals the end to 48 straight hours of fun and relaxation and the beginning of yet another five-day gruel-a-thon. Monday pales in comparison to Taco Tuesday, Thirsty Thursday, Payday Friday, and Sunday Funday.

There is only one way to jazz up a Monday and that is with a little bit of weekly motivation, a small dose of happy if you will. Sure, you'll trudge through this day only by sheer willpower every week and the only prize Monday will ever give you is when it comes to an end. At least you have this.

We can't make Mondays disappear, but we can bring you the best of the net and put a smile on your face.

15 Act Of Kindness

The subway gets a bad rap, but not everything that happens down in those city tunnels is cause for concern.

A perfect stranger took the clothes off of his back to give a small layer of shelter to a homeless man, who happened to be sharing his subway car. Why? Because he wanted to.

13 Move Over LeBron

We will bet the house that dad has been trying to perfect that move for the better part of his life, and it finally panned out. That is some serious basketball choreographing, like Janet Jackson level stuff. The moment will live in infamy for this family. It will be brought up at dinner at least three times a week and become the stuff that legends are made of.

12 Curious Monkey

Excuse me, but we're going to need an extra long lunch hour today. We just have to run out and purchase a baby monkey. Also, this cat is my spirit animal.

You all know this feeling. The one where you ate like crap all weekend long and never once got out of your sweatpants. Now you have to put on an outfit with buttons. It just seems so wrong and so impossible. Buttons are the devil's work.

Toddlers have it so good. They can run free in their undies and it's adorable. Adults go to jail for that kind of thing. Who wouldn't want to be a toddler and call everyone a fart machine? Hey, how about all of us go into work today and call our boss a fart machine? Then we can all hang out in our undie tomorrow when we are all fired from our jobs. Do you toddlers, do you?

7 Burn Baby, Burn

This is what we all wish we could do when things get a little rough. Just shut the door and let things burn on its own.

Just make sure you call your mom and dad for next month's rent, cause you'll lose your job.

If you are on the fence about having children, then this video should do a nice job of putting everyone safely in the "let's be parents" camp. Honestly, if we could find a few of these suits, we would do this just to watch my middle school melt into a black hole of mortification. Hey kids, remember all those times you kept us up all night long, peed on us in public and screamed your heads off in church. You had this coming.

This is pretty much how we feel every day. The world is spinning at rapid speeds, and we're barely hanging on by a thread.
