For most self-respecting guys, the goatee might be a relic that went away circa 1998, but it lives on thanks to truckers, your weird uncle and dudes who think Confederate flags are fashion statements. And, of course, MLB players.
These guys might be millionaires but apparently they can't spare the cash for disposable razors. Here's a look at some of the biggest facial hair offenders.

The flat top (a.k.a. the hi-top fade), one of the most stylish trends to ever land atop basketball players' domes, has made a triumphant return. The 'do reached its apex in the late '80s and early '90s with ballers such as Patrick Ewing, Scottie Pippen, Charles Oakley, David Robinson, John Starks, Dominique Wilkins, Chris Mullin, Rick Fox, J.R. Reid, Kenny Walker, Robert Horry, Dee Brown, Shawn Kemp and Detlef Shrempf.
And then it disappeared for 20 years. Nobody knows why.
Thank goodness Milwaukee Bucks' point guard Brandon Jennings brought sexy flat top back to the NBA a couple years ago. He's since shaved it, but inspired a couple other players to grow theirs. Now the flat top's spread into the college ranks, and probably throughout high schools and middle schools. Maybe it just needed a full generation to rest. Here's visual proof that the hi-top is back on top.
On this week's new "Guy Code" (watch full episode here), Jordan Carlos explains how he tips bartenders extra to make up for the stereotype that black people don't tip. He also makes a plea to other black guys to do the same (Jordan can make it rain, but he's still only one man). Really, everyone should be tipping in bars, that is, if you want to get buzzed in a reasonable about of time.
In addition to bar etiquette, the cast also discusses new relationships, being a nerd and having kids. For those teen dads out there, they also present a very special sketch video. Overall, there's a lot of info. Even if you've already seen it, you should really watch the episode again, but here are some illustrations and GIFs from last night to help you along.
We spent the weekend at the Daytona 500, NASCAR's Super Bowl. The lightning-fast cars were a sight to behold (see also: Danica Patrick), but we most admired the abundance of facial hair. At least 50% of the 200,000 spectators sported goatees, and some of 'em took it to the extreme. Here's our favorite beards and mustaches from race day.
I purchased my first Suicide Girls' membership with money I earned from stocking grocery store shelves, which should give you an idea of how long I've been a fan. Back when I lived in Phoenix, I used be a roller derby commentator for free (not even free beer) because I just liked to be around sexy tattooed girls. So when Suicide Girls' sent me a press copy of their new book "Hard Girls, Soft Light," I knew I've truly arrived.
They were even nice enough to send me photos of my favorite tattoos from the book, which we profile below. The nudity is cropped out [because we're a family destination at MTV], but you still don't want to be caught browsing these photos at work.

Midway through the Ohio State/Wisconsin Badgers game this past weekend, we got to wondering: What the heck does a badger actually look like? Maybe we saw a photograph in elementary school, but the memory's faded and we're pretty sure it doesn't look like chipper Bucky Badger, seen above next to his real-life counterpart. (Although classic fierce Bucky Badger comes closer.)
Which got us thinking: Do any anthropomorphic NCAA mascots resemble the s*** they're supposed to be? Here's a completely unscientific examination--a virtual safari, let's call it--comparing silly costumes with Mother Nature's renderings.
In the newest episode of "Guy Code," we learned that no matter how cool people are as adults, everyone is awkward-as-f**k during puberty. To prove this fact, many of the cast-members were willing to share their personal school photos from that era. Some of them have turned from nerdy ducklings into muscular swans (like Charlamagne) while others still look the same (like Lil Duval). While Lisa Ramos is much prettier now, she has the same closed-mouth pucker grin. And while Andrew Schulz is much wittier now, he has the same sized nose as his prepubescent self. See below for the cast-members who are brave enough to show off their younger, dorkier selves.
Erik Spoelstra, head coach of the Miami Heat and this year's Eastern Conference All-Stars, has a lot on his mind. Throughout the season it's his job to keep 2.5 stars happy on his own team, and now he's been blessed with a whole team of stars (whose combined income is enough to fund a small nation). What many consider to be a dream job can be ridiculously stressful.
To his credit, Spoelstra handles his business well with a championship ring to show for it. Let's take a glimpse inside the mind of the luckiest head coach since Phil Jackson was hired for Kobe and Shaq. The following are just some of the many Spoelstra faces that grace the sidelines during Heat games... and what we imagine he's thinking.

You've bought the flowers (or stolen them off some grave) and the gift (or just made a cute "I'll Admit You're Right" coupon)... but you can't forget the card. Because for some reason girls care about the card. The thing is, so many Valentine's Day cards are corny as hell, and that's not your style. You're a hilarious dude, and Hallmark isn't going to reflect that.
Don't worry, we have you covered. Here's the most romantic yet awesome cards of all time.
