Welcome to GUY CODE, the official blog of MTV2's "Guy Code" series and your online destination for all things dude, including—but not limited to—irreverent commentary on sports, hip-hop and ladies. Stay awhile and flex your manhood.
The third season of "Workaholics" is in full swing and their cult of viewers couldn't be happier. Comedy Central's offbeat sitcom about the office antics of three all-play-no-work dudes has become a pipe dream for American slackers across the country. Why can't partying instead of working be our main priority? Why can't we have co-workers who will eat ceiling tile with us? Would we get fired if we showed up to work wearing a bear costume?
Hell, that's why it's become one of our favorite shows. And the reason we're so excited for this exclusive bloopers clip from the new "Workaholics'" DVD and Blu Ray releases. If you're like us, you'll want to pick up the "Workaholics" Season Two DVD or the Seasons One & Two Combo Daddy Blu Ray release to revisit all your favorite stupid/hilarious moments. Or this is a great opportunity to catch up on the show that should already be on your "must-watch" schedule, but you've been slacking. It's OK, you can slack on watching slackers and be forgiven...but not forever. Watch the exclusive blooper featurette below and get on track.
Since season two ended on Sunday night, we've been going through some severe "Game Of Thrones" withdrawal. How are we supposed to get our weekly fix of bloodshed and sexposition and dragons? We've tried bandying about phrases like "the realm" and "the iron price" and "power is power," but they just aren't catching on in the daily lexicon. We can't afford the $30,000 iron throne replica.
Luckily, Buzzfeed pointed us to this wonderful, nerdy, badass "Game Of Thrones" rap that samples the song from the HBO show's opening credits. Just how dorky is this? Rapper Dominik Omega starts off by calling out the fairweather TV fans (i.e. us) who only watch the show and haven't read the colossal books. Also, the song is actually good! So who the hell is Dominik Omega? We have no idea, but we'd now like to see him sack Kings Landing and valiantly lead the Seven Kingdoms.
Check it out below, and we defy you not to hit "replay" as soon as it's over.
It's always awkward when the most clueless celebrities appear on sports shows pretending that they know even one thing about sports. Luckily, Jay Pharoah, the comedian and "Saturday Night Live" cast member best known for his hilarious impersonations, proved on ESPN's "First Take" Tuesday morning that he not only knows a thing or two about basketball, but he also has a damn good time showing us that he does.
Pharoah has parodied Stephen A. Smith on "SNL" in the past, mimicking Smith's extreme yelling and random outrages, so seeing the two sit side by side is fun, especially when Pharaoh whipped out his best Smith impersonation. Pharoah also followed it up with spot-on imitations of Denzel Washington, Charles Barkley and Eddie Murphy.
In the clip below, Pharoah also takes a dig at Paul Pierce, whom he calls a diva and an actress, getting Smith all riled up. For the record, Pharoah's a Thunder fan, and said that they would have a good shot against the Heat if the two teams were to meet in the NBA finals.
To see more of Pharoah's impersonations on "First Take," check out this video.
Car Alarm Symphony, the latest mass prank from Improv Everywhere, involved 100 recruits simultaneously sounding off their car alarms in a huge Staten Island mall parking lot in between a Lowe's and a Kohl's. Pegged as a sequel to IE's 2006 prank Cell Phone Symphony, in which hundreds of phones went off in a library, this mass prank falls flatter than its predecessor as it's more deafeningly annoying than funny.
The unknowing people's reactions, which are usually the best part of IE's pranks, are uncharacteristically boring to watch, probably because the victims drove away as soon as the alarm attack began. After all, the "symphony" sounds more like an alien invasion, which would definitely have us hauling ass out of there.
In other news, sales of hearing aids have mysteriously skyrocketed in Staten Island.
No New York Met had ever pitched a no-hitter, but that changed on Friday night when Johan Santana broke the spell. Maybe Santana was wearing his lucky socks? Maybe the St. Louis Cardinals batters were distracted by the blue and orange-clad fans in the crowd who had drifted into Shake Shack comas by the fourth inning? Or maybe it was because of Bill Maher?
In a head-scratching turn of events, news broke on Sunday that Maher, the 56-year-old comedian and political commentator, bought a minority ownership stake in the Mets. Maher, who grew up in New Jersey and says he is a lifelong Mets fan, didn't reveal how much he spent in the deal or how big of a share he owns.
So could Maher really be the good luck charm responsible for the Mets' historical win on Friday against the World Champion Cardinals? He clearly seems to think so.
"Let's be honest," Maher said. "There was no no-hitter for 50 years. I buy in and come to town. Draw your own conclusions."
There's just one problem with Maher's self-congratulatory theory: it turns out he actually bought the share months ago; it just wasn't made public until yesterday. Sorry, Bill, but your magic worked a little too late on this one for it to be considered real.
The Internet is a fickle mistress. It's the only place where someone would decide to A) rap about Cinnamon Toast Crunch, B) decide to show said rap to as many people as possible and C) see said rap stagnate in the forgotten depths of YouTube for five years before inexplicably showing up on every website, ever. We found it via Videogum and The Daily What, but they found it elsewhere on the Interwebs.
And now we're going to bring this gem to you. Did we mention, it's a RAP ABOUT CTC! From 2007! With a pimp chalice full of cereal! We think we're only hearing about this today because, well, it was simply too ahead of its time. America just wasn't ready for cereal spoof raps in 2007, just like it wasn't yet ready for a black president.
Do we wish we'd been able to spin this jam for the past five years? Of course. But we don't want to look a gift horse in the mouth, so just enjoy this in all its cinnamonny, toasty, crunchy, cheesy 2007 glory now. + Follow Guy Code on Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr
The Internet has hit a saturation point with covers and parodies of Gotye's mega-hit "Somebody That I Used To Know." But this "The Kobe That We Used To Know" spoof is so good that it is now Patient Zero. There are no other Gotye web covers, there is only this one, and there will only be this one, and everyone just stop and go home and film yourself doing something else (perhaps sex). This one is in a universe all its own.
Not only is it a spot-on spoof, but it goes the extra step of recreating the original video and OH YEAH, it makes fun of Kobe Bryant and the Lakers' quit exit from the playoffs. So watch it, learn it and sing along: "But you didn't have to take that shot / Just drive the lane and dump it off to either Pau or Bynum / Those two guys are really tall / And when you keep it for yourself you never score enough."
If you're anything like us, you regularly find yourself in awkward situations. Your face starts burning, you swallow hard, your pulse races, your mouth begins spewing verbal diarrhea and before you know it, you've made the moment even more uncomfortable.

You and your best friend are watching the game. You both stretch at the same time and begin to rest your arms on the back of the couch to get comfortable. Before you know it, your arms are around each other.
If the Summer Olympics rewarded teams for being douchebags, Team USA would easily win the gold. While the likes of Kevin Durant and Derrick Rose are leading the way for humble stars, the NBA still has a lion's share of d-bags and nobody leads the pack quite like the Nets' Kris Humphries. Between the caveman face and the fling with the Broad with the Big Ass, Humphries has built an impressive resume. The power forward gets booed by his hometown fans... even though he was easily their second-best player last season with Brook Lopez on injury reserve. We're looking forward to the Nets' move to Brooklyn where Kris can box-out hipsters or steal a kid's hot dog at Coney Island.
While his missteps have been many, it looks like Humphries at least has a sense of humor about it and shot a video with Funny Or Die mocking himself. This may be his first step on the road to redemption... or it may just be more fuel for fans' hatred.
There's a lot to love about "Community"--Annie's Boobs and Annie's boobs immediately come to mind. There's also Troy and Abed's obsession with the fake TV show "Inspector Spacetime." A "Dr. Who" parody starring the dashing Inspector and his trusty assistant Constable Reggie, "Inspector Spacetime" is the type of show anti-social dweebs love. Which is to say, we'd love it. It's also part of an exclusive club of fake TV shows within real TV shows that we'd totally watch. Below we've listed all 10 members of that club.
