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.
Halloween for men is a lot like MMA. It's fun to watch, but not as much fun to participate. If you're a guy in a relationship, you'll be forced to throw on some cheesy costume your girlfriend planned where the two of you are Adam and Eve or something. If you're single, you probably don't even think about Halloween until the last minute. And this is where we come in and save the day. The following is a list of costumes you can put together instantly with crap laying around the house or some junk they sell at the Dollar Store. Enjoy yourself and Happy Halloween!
The Guy Who Still Makes Mix Tapes For Girls
This is a throwback costume bound to get some attention. All you have to do is ask your dad or older brother for their old cassettes. Bonus points if you can find a boombox to go along with your costume.
Materials: Cassette tape with handwritten liner notes, cheap sunglasses, boombox (optional but awesome) Read More...
Every man knows, deep down inside, that civilization isn't our natural state. Sure, society has its benefits -- TV, video games, not being eaten alive by a pack of vicious animals -- but sometimes we've gotta get away from it all. That means heading to the woods, and then getting 500 mosquito bites that remind us why we so rarely head to the woods.
Even though you're escaping from the daily grind of a classroom or cubicle, you don't want to leave all your comforts from home behind. (You have a crossbow at home, right?) In the GIF above, you'll find everything you need to pack when you're going off the grid.
All in all, they raised $2,080 for charity (here's proof for skeptics), and they're donating another $100 for each 1,000 views the video receives; it's currently approaching a million. We salute these bosom benefactors, and we second this YouTube comment: "Seeing as men can get testicular cancer, could someone go around massaging our balls?"
When you were younger, people wouldn't give you Halloween candy unless you wore a costume. Now that you're grown up, the ladies won't hook up with you on Halloween for the same damn reason. Of course, some costumes will hurt your chances (like the one above, we're guessing), but others can help you find that temporarily special lady. Here are a few suggestions to give you an edge on the competition.
Get a big cardboard box and cut it into the shape of a booth that you can fit inside. You don't have to paint the box, but make sure there's a sign that says it's a "Kissing Booth," and specify how much it costs for a kiss. If you're into not being an idiot, charge 25 cents or less so you'll have customers.
Guys love sports, and when we can't play 'em, we like to bet on 'em. Whether it's your coworkers or your bros, a little wager can be a great way to make the game more interesting -- but it can also go terribly, terribly wrong. Here are things you should never put on the table, even if you're sure your team's a lock.
1. A date with your girl.
2. A date with your mom.
3. All the money.
4. Your shirt. Don't be the guy who literally lost his shirt.
Every year the NFL adds new rules that aim to keep the players safe while still making the games exciting to watch. Unfortunately, there are some things the NFL just doesn't address that keeps ruining the viewing experience. I say fans should be able to throw penalty flags, too! So grab the pair of those yellow dish-washing gloves your roommates never use, tie them in a knot and throw them during these 10 NFL penalties that should be added to football.
Too Many Running Plays In A Row
I know it's a "game of inches" but nothing is more annoying than watching a team go 60 yards while eating up the first quarter. This is a quarterback league now. Throw the ball! Except you, Blaine Gabbert.
Refs Taking Too Long In The Review Booth
Everyone saw that his knee wasn't down. Seriously. Get your head out from under there and look at the stadium big screen or a television replay or a iPhone video someone took from the third row. My grandmother, who's sitting in the other room, saw that it was a fumble and she's been dead for 10 days. Oh crap, we should really move Nana. Read More...
Facebook might be almost 10 years old (yikes!), but apparently that's not enough time for many people to learn how to use it without totally sucking. Here are signs that everybody on the site hates you, if they haven't blocked you already.
1. You have zero profile pics where you aren't shirtless.
2. You share your political opinions more frequently than actual politicians.
3. You think that someone, somewhere, might not have heard of FarmVille, and would appreciate an invitation.
4. You spoil TV shows the night they air, and genuinely feel you're doing everybody a favor by saving them the effort of watching.
Being in a frat is a great way to kill it in college. Great parties, girls and homoerotic horseplay may seem like the best, but how do you know you're in the right frat for you? Here are a few ways to tell whether you should consider switching houses.
1. You're the only dude there who doesn't start every sentence with "brah."
2. The only time a bunch of women came over, it was Parents Weekend.
3. The initiation gives you PTSD, and you insist on calling it "Pi Theta Sigma Delta."
4. Friday nights mean one thing: "Dungeons & Dragons," baby!
"Guy Code" does an excellent job of giving fans advice on the largely unspoken code of conduct that exists between men. But haven't you wondered how the cast members learned this stuff for themselves? Unfortunately, there isn't time during the TV show for them to tell their (often-funny, often-embarrassing) stories about learning these rules. That's where the "Guy Code Podcast" comes in.
Each week, "Guy Code" creator/executive producer Ryan Ling and Guy Code Blog editor Ryan McKee invite cast members, comedians and other celebrities to talk about all things male. Andrew Schulz drops by for the first episode and talks about growing up in New York City, being cast on MTV2, living with his girlfriend, his new show "The Hook Up" and riffs on autumn being the time where many women transition from summer boyfriends to winter boyfriends. Ryan Ling also tells the story of how he initially got the idea for the show and they all answer fan questions from Twitter.
