happy, happy, happy



"In that direction," the grinning cat said, waving its paw round, "lives a Hatter: and in that direction," waving the other paw, "lives a March Hare. Visit either if you like: they're both mad."
"But I don't want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.
"Oh, you can't help that," said the Cat. "We're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad."
"How do you know I'm mad?" said Alice.
"You must be," said that Cat, "or you wouldn't have come here. By-the-bye, what became of the baby?"
"It turned into a pig," Alice answered very quietly.
"I thought it would," said the Cat, and vanished quite slowly, beginning with the end on the tail, and ending with the grin, which remained some time after the rest of it had gone.
"Well! I've often seen a cat without a grin," thought Alice; "but a grin without a cat! It's the most curious thing!"

Sure, just a human. :)
This excerpt is from one of my favourite books ever- Lewis Carrol's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. In the book, the Cheshire Cat is this big striped cat that has a huge grin, and even after the cat dissapears, the grin still stays. Love this part of the book since I've many-a-time been called by this name. :D
