It's been a rough week for news, both at home and abroad, and even the unfailingly smiley Jimmy Fallon was forced to admit that things are pretty bad out there. Never one to take bad news lying down, Fallon decided to just straight up lie, and recruited a few news stories that aren't necessarily true, but, hey, it'd be nice if they were. Thanks, Jimmy. We feel better all ready ... Discuss
