A guy walks into a bar and sees a sign that reads, "Cheese sandwich $3.50. Chicken sandwich $4.50. Handjob $5." He checks his wallet and calls over the waitress. He asks, "Are you the one who does the handjob?"

She smiles at him seductively and says, "I am."

He says, "Well, wash your friggin' hands. I want a cheese sandwich."

About the Jokester: Before Alison Brie was cast as ad executive Pete Campbell's buttoned-up, neglected wife, Trudy, on Mad Men, the South Pasadena, California, native worked as a clown at children's birthday parties: "I'd drive down to the office in Compton in a clown suit and pick up a bag of balloons and a boom box." While she was proud of being the least likely balloon-animal maker in L. A. County, Brie was focused on a slightly more high-brow form of live entertainment: the theater. She was appearing in a local production of Hamlet when she got the call from Mad Men. In addition to her role on that show, Brie plays Annie, one of the students on NBC's new comedy Community, which also stars Chevy Chase and Joel McHale. Which means it doesn't look like she'll be returning to the small stage — or the backyard — anytime soon.

The world is full of good people. Noble, selfless, generous people who help the helpless, who continue to push when the world says retreat, who embody the better angels of our nature. This is not a list of those people. This is a list of men and women who, by virtue of skill or character, make us happy &#151; happy that they're among us, happy that they do what they do, happy that they're successful. Each of them possesses exceptional talent, of course, but each also satisfies two special requirements: <b>Would we like to have a drink with this person? And would we trust this person with our puppy?</b>
