Normally, we wouldn't even expend the energy to make fun of a Michael Bay action movie starring Mark Wahlberg and The Rock. But there's something special about "Pain & Gain," the latest from the explosion-mad director--namely, that it's set in Miami. And as you likely know, that means the bikinis will be as plentiful as the car chases.
In the trailer alone, there are at least nine eye-popping moments that suggest the entire 129 minutes will have viewers popping other things. We've gathered those notable shots below in a compendium of the biggest reasons we're looking forward to this movie. Fair warning: Shirtless Tony Shalhoub is included, but that couldn't be avoided.
Midway through Detroit starting pitcher Max Scherzer's third outing of the season, we noticed that the big hurler looks a bit like one of our favorite '90s cartoon characters: Doug Funnie from "Doug." (It has nothing to do with Scherzer's heterochromia, because Doug's eyes are merely black dots.)
He's not the only MLB pitcher with an animated lookalike. We think it's because MLB pitchers are a very diverse bunch with players of all shapes and sizes. There's fat guys, skinny guys, ugly guys and dorky guys. Check out the roster.

Hollywood is like high school: Everyone is competing to get voted Most Attractive. We decided to break that down to one--well, two--particular assets of the female form. To honor tonight's premiere of "Girl Code," where boobs will be a hot topic, we've made our own 2013 yearbook of celebs who have superlative endowments. Congrats, grads!

Instead of spending time and effort on crafting a good, you know, product, the giant corporate American breweries seem obsessed with gimmicky vessels from which to drink their fizzy yellow stuff. First, you had Coors Light bottles that changed colors to let you know when they were cold (impossible to judge otherwise). Then, Miller Light came out with cans you could puncture with a key to (unofficially, ahem) aid in reckless chugging.
This week, Budweiser proved why it's indeed the King of Beers with a coup de grace: a new can shaped like the iconic bow-tie logo. That bit of marketing genius made us wonder: What other products might also benefit from the shape of their company's logos?

Some fans wear jerseys, some fans wear hats and some fans wear body paint. Far fewer fans get tattoos for their favorite teams, and fewer still get inked in honor of their favorite players. But those who do prove a dedication that surpasses the rest of us. Today, we celebrate those fanatical fools with tattoos of NBA players, some legends and some nowhere close.
T-Mac had a chance to be one of the best ever. Most people thought he never reached that potential. This dude is not most people.

When writers on the internet make fun of Coachella (and boy, do writers on the internet make fun of Coachella), they often start with people like the guy above. Look at him show off his ample armpit hair and his fancy smartphone. Look at that pose. Look at those unnecessary arm bands. Look at his "freaking awesome, bro" headdress.
Chief Poses With Phone is by no means alone in perpetuating the stereotype of Coachella attendees as insufferable doofs. We've gathered a handful of pictures showing even more. If you scroll down and find a photo of yourself, don't feel too bad. You can always dry your tears with those piles of cash you peeled a few hundreds from to attend the festival.
Last night's 2013 MTV Movie Awards had a bunch of surprises--such as Aubrey Plaza trying to steal Will Ferrell's award--but it came as no surprise that Melanie Iglesias from "Guy Code" looked stunning. And "stunning" is a classy way of saying "hot as hell."
We're pretty much speechless, and you will be too after looking at these photos.

Guys don't like to express a lot of emotion. We prefer stoicism over showing the outside world how we're feeling. And truth be told, we don't feel much of an emotional range beyond anger, happiness and indifference.
But one guy who has no problem showing his feelings is Manchester United's Phil Jones. The British are known for keeping their composure, but Jones doesn't follow that tradition. His face might as well be big block letters that spell out his mood. If you have trouble expressing your own feelings, just show people the corresponding Phil Jones picture.

This Easter we're celebrating a bunny's ability to bring chocolate eggs around the world with these photos of children scared s***less of a furry animal. We have to cut the kids a little slack; some of these costumes even frightened us. It's like their parents want to shell out hundreds of dollars for therapy. See the rest of the pictures, from the Tumblr "Sketchy Bunnies," after the cut.
(We're not above laughing at someone else's expense, especially when they're scared to the point of tears. Sorry, kids.)
