Smile and be happy

By Nic Price on 19 August 2005 — 1 min read

Out of the gloom
a voice said unto me
“Smile and be happy,
things could be worse.”
So I smiled and was happy
and behold
things did get worse.

I don’t know where this originated, but it was on the pinboard at home when I was growing up with a big yellow smiley face above it. I liked it because it made my parents laugh.

  • It’s now a rather battered piece of paper attached to the fridge but it still makes me laugh. I’ve been thinking about how it originated and I believe it goes back to our Rome days when Dad, Chris and the team had been struggling with a particularly difficult project and someone came up with it. We added the yellow smiley face and the rest, as they say, is family history!!

  • Hello

    Smile and be happy, ‘caus it could be worse…bla bla it got worse

    I saw it in the Hitchicker guide to the galaxy “triology”. Never seen it elsewhere. Just as a clue if you’re still searching for the origin since 11 years. 🙂
