The world is full of disturbing and concerning things to blog about, think about, and even obsess about. So sometimes we all need a break. Here’s the best break I’ve seen in a long time.

Sad and Useless offers The World’s Greatest Gallery of Seductive Radishes. And they aren’t kidding.

There are lots more at the link. I had trouble picking three. Treat yourself; check out the site when you really want to smile.

Follow me on Twitter, where I found this site, thanks to radical economic scholar and writer Mehrsa Baradaran, who also needed something to smile about.
