These days, it’s extremely rare to encounter a news story that puts a smile on your face and a spring in your step.

So it’s in that spirit that we present you the following joyous development:

Jake Paul-Chris Brown

It seems two of the worst people in America are extremely eager to beat the hell out of one another.

If you have young children in your home, you might know Jake Paul as the creator of some of the most obnoxious videos ever uploaded to YouTube, which is really, really saying something.

Otherwise, you probably know him as the brother of Logan Paul, the douche bag who featured a suicide victim’s body in one of his equally stupid "comedy" clips.

And no matter what your age, you almost certainly know Chris Brown as a strong candidate for the worst person currently drawing breath.

Brown is best known for beating up Rihanna, but on rare occasions, he’s been known to get violent with members of his own gender as well.

And it seems Paul would like to seize on Brown’s well-known love of punching things by boosting his public profile with a celebrity boxing match.

Paul has boxed fellow YouTube personalities in the past, but it appears he’s eager to move up to the world of actual celebrities,

And he’s got his sights set on the world’s most despised singer.

Following his most recent fight against someone named Deji, Paul issued a challenge to Brown:

“I want to call someone out,” Paul said to whatever kind of press covers a boxing match between two YouTubers.

“Chris Brown, I know you were supposed to fight Soulja Boy. But I think it is time you got in the ring with someone your own size."

But that was back in August, and sadly, Breezy has yet to respond to the challenge.

Paul took the opportunity to double-down last night while attending the premiere of a music video for someone named Justin Roberts.

(Are we just getting old, or are none of these people actually famous?)

“He’s soft man," Paul told Hollywood Life when asked about the possibility of a fight with Brown.

"He’s not ready for the smoke. I’m sorry.”

Frankly, we feel rather conflicted about this whole story.

In all likelihood, a sociopath like Paul has no strong feelings about Brown or his repugnant actions, and this whole thing is just his way of trying to make the leap from YouTuber to actual celebrity.

It’s revolting to watch — and yet, we really want to see someone pummel Chris Brown, and Paul is significantly younger and appears to be in much better shape.

We suppose the best case scenario is that these two run into each other in and beat the crap out of each other with no witnesses.

Sure, that seems unlikely, but it’s important to have dreams in life, right?
