5. Alyssa Milano, because she hilariously burned Ted Cruz.

Just say no to hugs.

These are tough times, and everybody could use a hug. Especially, apparently, Senator Ted Cruz, who's been finding trying to rip healthcare away from the poor to finance a tax cut for the rich to be a lonely pursuit. That, and Zodiac killing.

Yesterday, when Charmed actress Alyssa Milano called everyone in for a group hug, Cruz strangely got very excited, and Milano went viral making an exception.

It's not the first time Cruz has been rejected for an embrace.

That's cold, lil' Cruz.

4. Drake Bell, because everyone was reminded that he exists.

"Remember me? I'm still alive, people!"

Former Nickelodeon star Drake Bell's week started off with a Bad Monday as he was recovering from the heartbreak of being snubbed out of his TV brother Josh Peck's wedding.

Bell was hurt that he wasn't invited. So hurt, in fact, that he tweeted about his heartbreak. Screenshots of his tweets went viral after he deleted them, thus breaking the hearts of everyone who watched Nickelodeon in the aughts.

Thrust back into the spotlight because of the beef, Bell is ceasing the opportunity for a Bellesassaince, showing the world that not only is he still alive, he's got a six-pack now.

Comeback SZN!! @flauntmagazine @stephenbusken @groomedbymichelleharvey @apuje

"Comeback SZN!!" Bell writes, and I assume "SZN" means "season," or "So Zen Now"?

He might not have been invited to the wedding, but he's invited back into the public consciousness now.

3. Lady Gaga, because she invented hiking couture.

Lady Gaga is famous for wearing weird things at weird times (THE MEAT DRESS—9/12/10—and the world was never the same). Her latest innovation is just as impractical, but hopefully doesn't smell as bad.

Paparazzi caught Gaga going for a hike going for a hike with her boyfriend Christian Carino in Montauk, New York, hiking wearing $1,000 Christian Louboutin high heels, taking on the gravel path like it's the runway.

It's important to feel comfortable while exercising. For some, comfort might mean a big old shirt and dad-like sneakers, but for others, it's feeling like ~*your best self*~ in a glamorous crop top and super high heels.

2. This mom who hung out with hunks.

When Twitter user Avery Leilani's mom dropped her off for freshman orientation, she put everyone's game to shame befriending the hottest guys on campus. She became an internet hero and inspiration to aspiring MILFs.

Yup, she's not a regular mom, she's a cool mom.

1. This teen who has a charger retriever.

An inspiring innovation in the growing field of Laziness Hacks, Twitter user Sophie Billington's mom wrapped the cord around the family pooch Meggy's chest.

Combining the internet's love off all things doggos and all things laziness, the tweet went super-viral. It is likely inspiring a startup for a leash that is also a collar somewhere in Silicon Valley.

Now that Sophie's phone has the juice, she can keep up with all the likes and notifications.

Well done, doggy.
