Some days, the world can get you down. It can feel like one plate full of shit after the next.  Hell, if you've glimpsed at the news on virtually any day in 2016, you'll have literally begged gods you didn't previously believe in to send a plague of crows down to peck your eyes out.

Even avuncular naturalist and genuine national treasure David Attenborough is calling, albeit with a kindly chuckle, for presidential assassinations, which is arguably the greatest marker of quite how bad things seem right now.

But fear not, dear reader. Can we make all of your worldly troubles go away? Do we have all the answers? Have we discovered a panacea that will fill your wallet, feed the children, and make humanity love one-another? Can we bring David Bowie - seemingly the glue that held all normality together - back to life?

No. No we can not. But we do have 26 pictures of impossibly cute Lemurs. So sit back, ignore the flames, and let these wonderful primates work their magic.

You. Are. Welcome.
