Graduation ceremonies are painfully boring. Remember what it was like, as a kid, to be trapped in front of a TV playing the news? A graduation is like that, but with ill-fitting robes.
That butt-numbing boredom inevitably inspires people to try spicing up the affair. Often, they'll make bad inside jokes that only half the crowd gets...while friends and family wish for an even bigger asteroid to strike the stage. But even inside (more like insipid) jokes aren't as bad as the worst thing that can befall a graduation ceremony: Someone pretending to trip as he accepts his diploma.

Never hustle. Hustling only leads to tired legs, sweaty brows and in the case of Major League outfielders, embarrassing face plants in front of 40,000 people.
Washington Nationals wunderkind Bryce Harper is the latest outfielder to sprint head on into an immoveable object. It happened last night in LA and the immediate aftermath is above. Harper, known for his balls-(and now face!)-to-the-wall hustling, was immediately taken out of the game with blood running down his neck.
Don't feel sorry for him though. That's what he gets for hustling. One would think that outfielders have learned by now that loafing and not flattening your face is better than trying hard and hitting the DL. They haven't though and here are the GIFs to prove it. Most of these are from the past few years, with one classic thrown in at the end. Let them all serve as a reminder of the horrors of hustling.
The fine ladies of "Girl Code" addressed the art of dancing on last week's episode. They had illuminating discussions on "boobie popping" and suggestively sucking straws (which we couldn't more highly recommend). But given the time constraints of TV, they couldn't address one of our favorite dance subjects: The killer dancer who looks like an awful dancer. We love a good surprise...and when it comes in the form of a doughy white guy in a park ranger uniform moving like he was in "Wild Style," we love it even more. Here are eight examples that prove the surprisingly awesome dancer is the best dancer of all.

When the 2013 MTV Movie Awards were first announced, we rejoiced that the slate of movies were "movies for dudes" (that's us quoting us). What makes the movies so dude-worthy is a fine crop of beautiful women, explosive action and most importantly, raging scenes of sheer, unadulterated ass-kicking.
Today we bring you the best ass-kicking from the MTV Movie Award nominees in GIF form, because the only thing better than watching someone get punched in the face, is watching it on a loop.

This year's nominees for the MTV Movie Awards really brought it on the action front. Comic book heroes, James Bond and a vengeful slave made for tons o' blood and ass kicking. But that came at the expense of the lovely ladies, who were harder to find in this year's best movies than in the past. That didn't stop us from looking, though.
Last year's best movies might've been built on action, but there were lots of fappy moments buried just beneath. Here are our favorites...

One of the most important life lessons we've ever learned came from "Caddyshack": If you ever see a brown log floating in a swimming pool, eat it, because it might be a candy bar.
That's just one example of how movies are more than entertainment. They're also repositories of great wisdom. And last year's best films didn't disappoint on that front. Here's sage advice from the 2013 MTV Movie Award nominees, helpfully illustrated below in GIF form. Write them down and keep 'em in your wallet.

The great Will Ferrell has been doing funny things in movies ever since Mike Myers dropped him into a pit of fire in the first "Austin Powers." Every subsequent role has led to this Sunday, when Ferrell will receive the first-ever Comedic Genius Award at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards. Well-deserved!
Before we celebrate the hilarity of John William Ferrell (born 1967 in Irvine, California), however, we'd like to spend some time on a less appreciated character trait--his manliness. We'd argue that Ferrell is Hollywood's biggest brute, more masculine than any musclebound meathead. And here are the GIFs to prove it.

Film explosions rarely get the respect they deserve. Cine-snobs say they're trifling and extravagant, included only to appeal to those Neanderthals who giggle when they see things go boom. Well, we are those Neanderthals! And we can't wait for Sunday's MTV Movie Awards, because there are a bunch of excellent movies nominated across the 13 categories, some of which include 2012's best on-screen explosions.
Since big balls of fire don't yet warrant their own category on the show, we've taken it upon ourselves to assemble this list of nominees in GIF form. As Beavis would say, "Fire! Fire! Fire! Fire!"
Home runs are cool, but the two most exciting things in baseball are the bench-clearing brawl and the manager meltdown. In a brawl, the best part is when the fat-ass manager gets involved. With baseball season starting, we have a long summer of getting to watch managers lose their s**t. To prep, here are some GIFS of our favorite meltdowns.
While the cast-members in "Guy Code" season three gave us the most memorable lines from this series yet, the animators brought their game to a whole new level as well. Every week we were delighted to see many of the illustrations work as hilarious GIFs on their own, without voice-over. And our fans seem to agree since the GIF and illustration recaps are some of the most visited blog posts every week. Since we couldn't decide on which were our favorites, we turned to the "Guy Code" animators themselves and these are the 11 examples they picked.
