    What does mean "cheery"?

    Does it have a slang meaning?
    I would like to use it in this context: cheery laboratory or cheery team.
    Could you correct my mistakes, please.

    Нет. Я думаю, что это как веселый.

    A cheery laboratory sounds like a place where people dress like clowns and use multi-colored chemicals and everyone is laughing and smiling and full of mirth.

    Disgusting, really .

    What are you trying to say, exactly? A happy team (as in, a team that just won a game)....?

    Well, you could use it that way depending on the context. Look at these on a google search. It just means happy thats all.

    Thank all for your answer.
    I wanted to use "cheery" in domain name for site with easy and simple tools, some of them will be free. So I'm seeking a name that isn't serious but not so like place with clowns.
    Could you correct my mistakes, please.

    По-моему, слово 'happy' имеет намного потешнее значение. "Happy Meal, Happy Land, Happy Gilmore, What's Happying?" - эти несколько примеров.
    Correct my mistakes and I will give you +1 internets.
