Katz's Deli, a legendary joint in New York City, celebrated 125 years of shilling smoked meats and brown mustard yesterday. And is there any better way to celebrate than by hosting a Major League Eating competition? We think not. Katz's invited 10 contestants to wolf down pastrami sandwiches, and we were there to cover the action, while shielding our eyes from stray bits of flesh that might've hit us.

The Guy Code Bloggers. No one will accuse us of being the most fashionable dudes around. Sure, we know how to take care of ourselves, but we've also noticed the MTV Style girls inching away from us in the elevator -- as if our lack of fashion sense might be contagious. We don't blame them.
That's why we were excited when our pals at AXE Hair offered us a free session with celebrity groomer Amy Komorowski, plus a bag of their products. Amy has worked with the likes of Justin Timberlake and Ryan Reynolds -- and since people are CONSTANTLY telling me I look like a cross between those two, I volunteered first.
Our other brave soul was writer/designer Jim Tews, who showed up sporting a tangled mop stuffed under a grimy Phillies cap and left looking like a "Mad Man" character (or at least his hair did).
Explaining how Boy Scout Law is the original Guy Code made us wistful for our scouting days. We miss the marshmallow roasts on camping trips, sure, but we especially miss the merit badges we earned for learning skills such as First Aid and Swimming. (Kids today can earn merit badges for stuff like Game Design and Robotics.)
We've learned plenty of skills in the intervening years -- mostly related to curing a hangover -- but nobody gave us any patches to sew on our sash. Here are the updated merit badges we'd strive for today...
Everyone is sick and tired of economic hard times, so it makes sense that we're collectively looking back to the 1990s, a decade when "Why Don't You Get A Job?" was a hit song instead of a question that millions of millennials asked into their mirrors.
The problem with nostalgia, however, is that you romanticize the positives while ignoring the negatives. That's the theme of my new book, "90s Island," about a Kickstarter-funded tropical commune to recreate the past. Back in reality, our good feelings for the '90s shouldn't compel us to wear this ridiculous crap again...even if it is Throwback Thursday.

The Hangout Music Festival won the weekend and became our new favorite warm weather event. In a genius move, it combines two of the greatest things on earth, live music and sexy ladies in bikinis. How did this revelation not come to music festival promoters earlier? All outdoor events from now on should be hosted on beachfront property: renaissance fairs, hotdog eating contests, book fairs, etc. Each would be improved by the presence of women in bikinis. Below are photos of our favorite sexy ladies enjoying the music and sun.

Everybody knows that ladies love guys who can play an instrument--especially if it's a guitar--but for every rock star swimming in groupies, there's a bassoon player sitting in the corner, playing "Magic The Gathering." Here are some instruments to avoid, unless you're getting tired of all that sex you've been having.

Now that the weather is warming up and beach season is approaching, it's time for guys with chest hair to make some decisions. Do they shave completely, do some trimming or keep it natural? Perhaps the most frustrating aspect of making this decision is that there are only three options to choose from. When deciding what to do with facial hair, you can choose from several types of ridiculous mustaches alone. For those of you who with chest hair, we've found some options for designs you may want to use if you're feeling creative, bold and/or stupid.

We're big fans of physical fitness around these parts. It's good for your heart, good for your brain, good for...for...what were we talking about again?
Oh yeah, physical fitness. Go to the gym! Care about your body! At least, care about the other bodies there, curves fully on display thanks to the sports bra...which, for some miraculous reason, girls consider outerwear, not underwear, even though it was modeled after the jockstrap.
Sorry, jockstraps aren't sexy. You want sexy? Check out these 30 photos over at the Chive, and then pump some iron. After you're done pumping, uh, something else.

Last week, 26-year-old Florida teacher Olivia Sprauer, pictured above, got fired from a Boca Raton high school over racy bikini pics that she'd posted online. "I'm too sexy for my job...LOL," she wrote in response. With a body like that, why waste your time handing out As and Bs when you can show off those amazing Ds?
Sprauer is just the most recent casualty of a disturbing trend: Hot teachers getting fired just for being hot. Here are four other educators who showed too much skin for superintendents to handle.
Americans think of football as the toughest sport, but let's reconsider that for a second. When two diesel linemen have beef, don't they just grab at each other's face masks until a puny ref pulls them apart? And isn't a team dentist only there to keep the players' teeth white for the cameras?
We thought so. On the other hand, when hockey players fight, they don't even wear masks, and the refs don't get in the way until they decide that one guy's face is sufficiently pulpy. Oh yeah, a hockey team's dentist is busy enough to put your kids through college, too.
The main reason hockey players aren't selling Gatorade like the rest of the jocks is that these fights leave 'em ugly and toothless. It's not fair, so we gave some of them teeth again. Gold teeth.
