There's a lot of depressing news out there.

Between all of the nonsense coming out of the Trump administration, all the news surrounding Brexit, and the sobering reality that we're all just looking at memes to distract ourselves from living the curse of the starving class, it can be difficult to locate a sliver of light in the darkness.


But even the news has its humorous moments, like the fact that rapper Cardi B officially filed the trademark paperwork for the phrase "Okurrr" with three Rs, which "would mostly cover merchandise like clothing and paper goods," according to a report from ABC 13.

You have no idea what I'm talking about? Here's a refresher:

Cardi B is part Dominicana, okurrr, and she knows how to trill her Rs.

Apparently she decided to trademark "okurrr" due to popular demand, if that's what you want to believe:

But the news anchors––well, let's be fair, just co-anchor Dan Jaehnig–– on NBC 10 WJAR really don't know how to trill those Rs, as evidenced by a clip from a newcast in which they relayed Cardi B's intention to trademark the phrase.

Jaehnig's colleagues, Mark Searles and Emily Volz, were able to do it. But when he tried, he emitted something resembling a blood-chilling caw that can only be described as what it would probably sound like if Donald Sutherland's character at the end of Invasion of the Body Snatchers attempted to bang a knothole in a tree.

Oh, sweet honey child. That's not the way you do it! You gave us a good laugh, though.

We laugh so we don't cry, everyone. Also, Dan, please explain yourself.

We still don't know what the h*ll that was, even after commissioning several scientific evaluations.

Dating and the search for love and companionship... What a nightmare.

This journey plays out nothing like in the movies.

Every Prince or Princess (or everything in BTW) seems to have a touch of the psycho.

The things people say during what should be simple dinner conversation can leave a dining partner aghast.

Like... do you hear you?

Children tend to believe just about anything they hear.

That there are monsters under your bed, watching too much TV will make your head explode, and silly faces will be permanent if you make them too often.

The sky is truly the limit when it comes to silly things that children will believe.

Some call it naivitée, other's youthful innocence.

But it's hard not to look back with embarrassment on certain things we believed as a child, that today might simply seem dumb.

Redditor Disastrous_Toe_6548 was curious to learn the multitude of silly things people believed when they were children, leading them to ask:

"What's the dumbest thing you believed as a kid?"
