One of our favorite additions to "Guy Code" in season three was Dan Soder, who delivered painfully gut-busting laughs. Comedy Central took notice, and now he's performing on "The Half Hour" tonight at 12/11C. As the name implies, it's thirty minutes of standup comedy...and judging by this preview clip, it's gonna be hilarious:
We caught up with Dan to ask about other topics he'll tackle on "The Half Hour," how he felt appearing on Conan and why some comedians are funny on stage but suck at Twitter.
Aside from hipster-bashing, what can we expect tonight?
There are definitely some "Guy Code"-related subjects like drinking, dating, a lot of that kind of stuff.
What have you been up to since season three ended?
I got a haircut, bought a sandwich with the money they gave me and have been taking a lot of naps. So basically, I've been like a lazy Forrest Gump.
Following in the footsteps of Tony Hawk, President Obama and Travis Pastrana, the Terminator himself (also formerly Mr. Olympia, Conan the Barbarian and governor of California) Arnold Schwarzenegger appeared on reddit Tuesday for an "IamA" question and answer session. Ahhnold added in his bio, "I killed the Predator."
He didn't stick around reddit very long, but long enough to answer a bunch of fun questions, occasionally responding in mangled purple cursive on his iPad. He declined to dish on his younger, orgy-filled days (or about "Kindergarten Cop"), but nevertheless made us want to purchase his autobiography, and more likely to see his latest movie "The Last Stand," costarring MTV's own Johnny Knoxville.
Highlights after the jump. Obviously, we implore you to read all the responses in his voice to maximize entertainment value.
One of the great additions to "Guy Code" in Season Three (which premieres on MTV2 January 15 at 11/10c) is comedian Dan Soder, who performed on Conan O'Brien's show last night. He covered topics ranging from why young guys' tattoos are less intimidating than old guys' tattoos--an inspirational quote or a koi fish won't make you look like a badass--to how you can avoid getting mugged by faking a Russian accent, because "Russians are the scariest white people." (Especially the old tattooed ones?)

2012 has been a great year for stand-up comedians. The Internet has allowed audiences to become much savvier about the comedy they consume. They, in turn, have responded by packing clubs and theaters around the country and performers have responded by raising the bar each year.
It was no easy task coming up with a list of the year's best comedy albums, so we painstakingly narrowed it down to 13. There is a generous representation of style, substance and just plain good frikkin' jokes. We want readers to weigh in as well with our Best Comedy Album of 2012 poll below.

"Mr. P," Patrice O'Neal
Patrice O'Neal sadly passed away in 2012, but not before leaving fans with arguably one of the greatest comedy albums of the last 10 years. "Mr. P" includes his signature unapologetic, off-the-cuff style of engaging audiences and serving up his perspective on interracial couples and having cash.
Last year was brutal for beards: Matisyahu and Conan O'Brien shaved theirs, and Osama bin Laden's became a sea life habitat, thanks to SEAL Team 6. But 2012 has been fantastic for facial hair, from movies to TV to video games to "The Hunger Games."
Without further ado, the greatest whiskers of the past 12 months...
Best Superhero Facial Hair: Bruce Wayne, 'The Dark Knight Rises'
Not so long ago, comic book heroes were clean-shaven while villains twirled their mustaches. But in "The Avengers," bare-faced Loki is no match for bearded Thor, Iron Man and Nick Fury. That said, the only crime-fighter more badass than Batman is unkempt, clinically depressed Batman. Until caveman-style Wolverine hits screens next year.

"This...is 'SportsCenter.'" Chances are you just read that in the voice of the man pictured above. Chances are you've also never seen him before, but he's the owner of the voice that was with you when you stayed home from school. And when you killed time in a hotel room. And when you quickly flipped the station after someone walked in on you watching scrambled Spice Channel.
For some reason ESPN recently unveiled Chris Kelley, the man responsible for the iconic timbre, and here he is in action:
Gah! That was jarring. We liked it better not knowing. It's like when you're at the gym staring at a girl on an elliptical in front of you. She's perfect. You're in love. And you're glad you can't see her face because it can't live up to your expectations.
ANYWAY, Kelley isn't the first famous voice to reveal his identity after a lifetime of anonymous voice work. Here are eight other famous voices matched with the unknown faces responsible for them.

The other night on "Conan" Charlize Theron talked about her obsession with UFC, or as she put it, watching "sweaty, hot men bleeding all over each other and bashing each other in the face." So what's a delicate flower like Charlize doing watching such a brutal sport? Well, nothing out of the ordinary, apparently.
Sure, we already know about the athlete fans or the burly dudes who follow the sport, like Joe Rogan, Michael Clarke Duncan and Kevin James. But in just another sign of MMA's meteoric rise into the mainstream consciousness, there are plenty of wimpy, girly or frou-frou celebrities who love them some ass-kicking action. Whether they're pampered stars who still need their taste of the gritty life, or just bloodthirsty savages like the rest of us, here are 15 other celebrities who you might be shocked to see Octagonside at the next UFC event.

We guess Bieber was just trying to show that paparazzo the new submission move he learned.
You know by now that we love a good prank around here, particularly when a celebrity gets Punk'd on television. Not all gags get that kind of funding and exposure, but there were some pretty great pranks executed this April Fools' Day, yesterday. Yes, yesterday. So if your girlfriend tells you today that she's pregnant, it just might be true. Many of our favorite pranks this year were captured on video, beginning with...
SportsNation producers got Michelle Beadle to wear a jumpsuit and fly around on a green screen for a bogus segment
Beadle believed that she was participating in a clip where she would be simulated flying into a stadium in a 3-D clip. Of course this required her to pretend that she was a little birdie or an airplane and fly around on a green screen. She eventually figured out on her own that yeah, she got Punk'd.

Ron Burgundy appeared on "Conan" last night to announce "Anchorman 2"
He even played a number on his sissy jazz flute. Paul Rudd and Steve Carrell will be back. It's about damn time. (Deadline)
"Punk'd" returns tomorrow night at 10 p.m. on MTV, and to our knowledge, Justin Bieber is the only baby scheduled to be on the show. That's unfortunate, because babies are hilarious when punk'd. Sure, punking a baby is not something to be proud of, nor is it very hard. Just being a baby opens up a crazy, cruel world that tries to beat you down and scare you. All it takes to frighten these kids is a weird toy, unfamiliar noise, tunnel or cold water. Still, it makes us laugh out loud to watch. We supposed it's the simplicity of these punk'd GIFs that makes them so funny.
Mind you, the poor young boy getting punk'd above by some freaky, walking mouse toy (which is undoubtedly terrifying to a handful of grown-up people in this office) shouldn't be ashamed of his terror. Nor does the shame fall on his mother, who set him up and smiles at the end of the clip. Someone has to toughen these kids up, and a freaky, battery-powered, stuffed walking mice is a good start. It only gets harder out there, kids.
Enjoy 12 more GIFs of more babies getting punk'd below.
