In an effort to counter all the bad news in the world, The Tonight Show asked local NBC news anchors to report on stories that would no doubt make us all a little happier. The results are rib-tickling funny. Watch for yourself in the video below.
According to CBS New York, a Yonkers police captain who is credited with saving the life of a 2-month-old baby nearly 20 years ago has been invited to the young woman’s wedding.

Now, with content widely accessible the question is no longer if we can receive but if we are receptive.” says Hedberg on his project’s website.
