If you're gonna be a lawyer, you need some serious talent at public speaking, because persuading a judge or jury is no easy task. And when it comes to verbal gymnastics, Anthony "Chico" Bean is the McKayla Maroney of "Guy Court." In this advance clip from tonight's episode, Chico has everyone in the courtroom -- from the audience to Bailiff Melanie Iglesias to Judge Donnell Rawlings and even opposing counsel Chris Distefano -- in stitches with his closing argument...and with his juice pack prop. Feeling thirsty?

Most guys in relationships are a little whipped, but some guys don't even have wills of their own anymore. Like one of the defendants on Wednesday's "Guy Court," who committed a worse athletic sin than doping: He lost the game for his team by chatting with his girlfriend, because "I gotta be on the phone or else she'll think I'm a cheater."
It seems like an easy conviction, but you never know how Judge Donnell Rawlings will rule, so watch this advance clip and then tune in tomorrow for the verdict!

Enemies come in many forms: a guy who cuts you off in traffic, a coworker who takes credit for your ideas, a bartender who ignores your drink requests, a touring musician who sleeps with your sister and even a friend who borrows money with no intention of paying it back. While there is no one way to deal with every enemy, there are certain lessons that should be followed when anyone crosses you. Those rules are often perfectly demonstrated when an expert stand-up comedian takes on a heckler.
We just read RG Daniels' newest book, "Ten Shows," which is a darkly funny collection of stories that follows a struggling stand-up comedian in New York City. That gave us the idea to ask RG to select his favorite 10 videos of comics destroying hecklers and give us the lesson to be learned from each one. The results are insightful and extremely fun to watch.
1. Play Defense
Let your enemy destroy himself by getting too aggro. Their mistakes will lead to your victories.
2. Blindside Him
It's a cheap and dirty trick, but when it comes to enemies, sometimes you have to catch 'em when their guard is down (or when they are sh*tfaced). Read More...
For every possible romantic situation, there's a song that perfectly captures your emotions. But perhaps no song has captured the agony of watching an a-hole walk away with the girl quite like "Unsung Heroes: Nice Guys" from L.A. band Extremely Decent.
Plus, the music video they filmed (NSFW language) isn't just super funny; it'll show you how to man up and impress with confidence. Because she doesn't really like that arrogant jerk -- she just likes that he isn't such a pathetic sad sack all the time.
You know Jon Gabrus from "Guy Code" and "Guy Court," and now he's also costarring in the web series "Strong Island" from Comedy Central's CC: Studios, which is about two Long Island scam artists who live in their mom's basement. Or, as Gabrus's character puts it, "Our mom lives in a house above our apartment."
A new five-minute episode has premiered each day this week. Watch one of our favorites below, in which Gabrus 'roids up and goes full Hulk at a pool volleyball tournament, and then go check out the rest. (NSFW language, and a lot of shirtless Jon Gabrus.)
When Melanie Iglesias is done punishing the guilty on "Guy Court," she comes back home to this innocent li'l guy featured in the behind-the-scenes video from her latest photo shoot, "Life-Size Melanie Iglesias: Bedtime with Teddy." Didn't think you could feel jealous of a plush bear? Think again. Also, think about how awesome it'd be if Melanie starred in the sequel to "Ted." Or give your brain a rest from thinking and click play:
If you're ever stuck with jury duty, you'll know that a trial can last for days, weeks, even months. But since "Guy Court" is only 30 minutes long, some great moments wind up on the Cutting Room Floor. In this week's bonus clips, Judge Rawlings shuts down an unruly audience member and Jon Gabrus tells his own client to back the f*ck off. You'd actually want to spend months in this hall of justice. Who needs order in the courtroom?
If your boy needs to borrow your vehicle, it'd be a Guy Code violation to deny him a ride. But if he uses it for an entirely different kind of ride, is that an even bigger Code violation?
"Thou shalt not c*ck block," of course, but it also seems wrong for a dude to befoul his friend's car with sex smells and used condoms. Check out this sneak peek from the next episode of "Guy Court," and tune in Wednesday for Judge Donnell Rawlings's verdict:
"True Life: I'm Doing A Tough Mudder" premieres tomorrow at 4/3c on MTV. If you're not familiar with Tough Mudder, where have you been? We covered it over a year ago. It's "Probably The Toughest Event On The Planet," according to their website.
The show follows three competitors as they train for and compete in a Tough Mudder. Like most "True Life" episodes, each of the main characters have unique backgrounds and motivations. "Girly-girl" Amanda is doing it so people will take her more seriously. "Super-competitive" Brett wants to best his twin, so he'll have bragging rights for life. And Noah, who is a double-amputee, wants to prove he can do by himself.
"Chubby blogger" Ryan McKee decided to run Tough Mudder because I thought it'd make a funny video (and I knew there'd be free Dos Equus there). The promoters offered to let me do it for free if I covered it on Guy Code Blog. But they didn't tell me that until a few days beforehand, so I didn't train, I didn't prepare and I didn't even get a good night's sleep beforehand. The result is the following video:
If that doesn't inspire you to sign up for the next Tough Mudder, maybe the preview of tomorrow's show will.

Back in August, Melanie Iglesias gave mankind a super early Christmas present by licking ice cream on YouTube for one spectacular minute. We probably don't have to remind you, because it's permanently seared into your memory. But since today's Friday and you deserve a frozen treat, here it is again...
