"Monkey see, monkey do" is the old phrase, but it should really be updated to "Teen boy see, teen boy do." While not as catchy, the revision is more apt given the creation of YouTube and teenage boys' willingness to mimic anything and everything they see on TV and in movies. That includes "Jackass."
Of course, before every episode of "Jackass" there's that warning that explains the stunts are done by professionals or under the supervision of professionals, and they shouldn't be attempted at home, but adolescents don't care much for being told not to do something. The following seven GIFs capture these wannabes attempting -- and mostly failing at -- very stupid "Jackass"-like stunts.
Starting Friday on MTV, watch MANCATION WEEKEND 2! Guy programming all weekend long with the TV premiere of "Jackass 3D" on Saturday.
The U.S. Open kicks off next weekend. The very same weekend that MTV airs the Mancation Weekend 2 marathon! Three days of guy-themed programming, featuring the premiere of "Jackass 3D."
There are only a handful of professional jackasses (above!) but plenty of amateurs who, for one reason or another, decide to become Tony Stewart behind the wheel of a golf cart. While the U.S. Open courses are too pristine for golf carts, it's high time for you, me and the four-wheeled, open-air, canopied idiot-mobile riders to dust off the clubs and hit the greens. A necessary word of caution: Don't be a jackass. But if you're born that way, check out the GIFs below, in which people went very, very wrong on a golf cart.

Here's your other commencement speech, recent college graduate. It's going to be hard out there in the real world. Not "The Real World," but the rest of your loan-vexed, non-academic life, where the stakes are higher and your diploma really doesn't matter much anymore.
Two to three months after you strut across the stage in your graduation regalia, you'll get a letter from your college or university. In it, you will find a request for money. Not for more tuition -- for a donation, anywhere from $10 to $1,000. Does that sound like something you might be interested in?
Aaaaand it won't be long after graduation that you'll receive your first student loan bill. Remember those thousands of dollars you borrowed for tuition, books, housing, booze? Paying it all back is going to feel something like this:

Breakups suck. Even though we tell ourselves that we don't need a girl, they look good, they smell good and they sometimes put up with hours of our video game playing. Unfortunately, loves are sometimes short-lived and a real keeper decides not to stick around. The pain can be downright cruel.
But you're not alone, no matter how lonely you feel, because we've compiled 25 GIFs that just got dumped. The way these ladies and gents handle their breakups just might make you feel better about your past, present or future situation.
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.
