Scrubs star Zach Braff is loving this story about a dead Gordon Ramsay 'sex dwarf' eaten by a badger
Yep, we should definitely count our blessings.
Monday mornings are just the worst aren't they? Your precious weekend seems to be fly by, as the joy of Friday turns into the dread of a Monday in the blink of an eye. It's cold, it's dark, it's miserable - and you've got a whole working week ahead of you.
It's why we and others always try to cheer you up with some Monday morning motivation - or at very least a momentary chuckle to brighten your spirits. After all, it's not so bad. Of course you can't be arsed with a early rise but it could be so much worse.
Zach Braff, the much-loved and very witty star of Scrubs, Garden State and Chicken Little, certainly agrees. Although his cheery message of a Monday morn was slightly more 'out there' than a mere picture of a sunrise, or a cheeky little minion or two.
The 41-year-old was keen to share a story he had just happened across by way of a count-your-blessings sentiment. Some of you may be aware of it from a few years ago - if you're not then you're in for treat. It refers to a dead Gordon Ramsey 'sex dwarf'.
Yep, you read that right. Braff shared the rather startling headline 'GORDON RAMSAY'S DWARF PORN STAR LOOKALIKE FOUND DEAD IN BADGER DEN HALF EATEN' to a story from September 2011. He added: 'If you're having a shitty day, this is a real headline and it wasn't you.'
Food for thought, for sure.
Unfortunately/fortunately, the headline may have been real, but it was from the Sunday Sport, who are famous for their tongue-in-cheek faux splashes. For example...
It didn't stop Braff's 1.5 million followers reacting to the imagined death of the randy vertically-challenged chef lookalike with shock and dismay...
Too much information in one title

I envy and feel for the person that has to write his eulogy.

It must be stressed that no dwarves, chefs, badgers or medical students were harmed in this article.
