1. The Backstreet Boys
This photo of Backstreet Boys Howie Dorough, AJ McLean, Kevin Richardson, and socialite Denise Rich is what pure joy looks like. If you could harness the positive energy in this photo as a renewable fuel source, you could power Otoh Gunga, otherwise known as the Gungan city, for generations of Jar Jars to come. Praise the Backstreet Boys for their optimism in the face of impending doom! May we all find cowboy hat-filled moments of bliss like this in our own lives and cherish them like a child with a high midi-chlorian count.
