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.
The season three finale "Guy Code" was a big one! Not only did we get the bookends to "Hot Girl On A Bicycle" with "Hot Girl Shooting Hoops" and "Hot Girl Walking Her Dog," plus a break-in from the "Girl Code" cast talking about penises, we also learned all about dads, being embarrassed, falling in love and guys' night out. Good thing they jammed so much into this episode since it's the last one we'll get for awhile! I know, we're sad too. However, you can relive last night's episode by clicking here, plus here are the funniest illustrations and GIFs to help you along.
And remember to keep checking the Guy Code Blog every day for new content. We'll keep you entertained and informed until the next season returns.
Think back to the beginning of "Guy Code" season three. We brought you April Rose in "Hot Girl On A Bicycle." That was a great day, wasn't it? Well, tonight's season finale brings you the companion pieces for that glorious video.
As you can see above, the first showcases the lovely Melanie Iglesias playing basketball in slow-motion. This is way better than watching LeBron James mess around and get a triple-double. Plus, the "Hot Girl Shooting Hoops" isn't the only video tonight that'll make your girlfriend jealous. There is a second that's top secret.
Your lady can take comfort though in knowing she gets to see a sneak peek of the all-new "Girl Code" series if she tunes in as well at 11/10c on MTV2.

We love movies, old-school Nintendo games and GIFs, so we could spend all day clicking through this hypnotic gallery of famous film scenes (from "Taxi Driver," "Pulp Fiction," "Ghostbusters" and more) imagined as 8-bit NES adventures.
Actually, we demand more. These should either be full-length animated movies or playable video games. Come on, internet, you can't tease us like this. Get crackin'.

Oakland A's outfielder Josh Reddick raised the bar for whipped cream pieings last season when he dressed up in a Spider-Man (a.k.a. "Pie-der Man") costume and smashed Coco Crisp after a 13th-inning walk-off sacrifice fly. It's one of baseball's entertaining, delicious traditions. Tastes like victory!
We look forward to more major leaguers getting creative like Reddick (and creamed like Crisp) in 2013. Read on for different stylistic approaches to the art of pie smashing.
Little did the businessman rushing to work know that a bus driver would lose focus and plow into a station wagon at the red light. Fortunately Mr. Frogger turned his head with just enough time to outrun both the car and bus; a millisecond later and he might've been roadkill. Yet today he's (presumably) alive and well...and in a GIF, not a grave.
After the jump, here's 15 more GIFs of unsuspecting people who found themselves only inches from game over. You won't believe their luck...and won't believe your eyes.
