Whoever here thinks Monday is awesome, please raise your hand...and kindly exit the building. We come to yet another workweek , gang—and yes, another Monday. Insert collective grunt here.

To turn that work-induced frown upside down, we just have the thing for you: FHM's Best Of The Weekend, a collection of the best/strangest/awesomest bits that scored a click from us over the two greatest days known to the working man.


1)   THE LAPTOP WARS CONTINUE: PC Brands make fun of the new MacBook

Apple unveiled the new ultra-thin, Retina-equipped MacBook last week. We were impressed.

Not so impressed: PC makers Asus, Dell, and Lenovo, who joined arms in bullying the tech giant on Twitter:

The "I'm a Mac / I'm a PC" wars continue, and all is right in the world.


2)   HERE COMES A NEW CHALLENGER:
Friday The 13th star is the newest fighter in Mortal Kombat X

Jason Voorhees, the hockey mask-wearing murderer in the Friday The 13th movies, takes on a new role as a fighter in Mortal Kombat X. Voorhees will be part of the game's "Kombat Pack" DLC that also includes three other new characters, whose names have yet to be revealed.

3)   CLASSY MOVE: Iron Man presents handicapped kid with real bionic arm

Robert Downey Jr. a.k.a. The Real Iron Man showed his soft side as he presented a 7-year-old kid named Alex a 3D-printed bionic arm. Alex was born with a partially developed right arm.

The new arm, which Downey presented in character as weapons magnate Tony Stark, was made by Albert Manero, found of volunteer group Limbitless Solutions. The group's goal is to produce 3D-printed bionic limbs that cost just $350 to make as opposed to the traditional replacement limbs which cost $40,000. Tissues at the ready, gents.

4)   YES PLEASE: Ex-porn star Lisa Ann has an offer you can't refuse

The ex-adult film actress has teamed up with Brazzers to create a contest that involves two things we love: basketball and adult film actresses.

The mechanics: Upload your sickest basketball trick shot on IG or Twitter.

The prize: The best one gets a a flight, hotel accommodations, and a ticket to the NCAA Championship Game on April 7 in Indianapolis, Indiana. More importantly, they get a date with Lisa Ann, which just might lead to a little something-something.

Or not.

Still, how many people can say "I dated a porn star"?

5)   TECHNICAL FOUL OF THE WEEKEND: Ginobili surprises once again with clever move

On Sunday's game against the Minnesota Timberwolves, the San Antonio Spurs' Manu Ginobili told the ref to wait a little before throwing him the ball on the charity stripe. The ref didn't listen. Here's what happens when you don't listen to Manu:

One more ref, and Ginobili's going to throw you out!


6)   SHUT UP AND TAKE OUR MONEY: An adapter that solves the problem of plugging USBs the wrong way

A gadget that solves an annoying daily problem for techies has finally arrived on Kickstarter: an adapter that ensures you're plugging in your USB the right way, every time. The simple device, called the RYO, attaches on your USB adapter, which can then be connected to the USB port on your computer in any direction.

This is definitely Invention of the Year material. Check it out on its Kickstarter page where you can support the project and get three adapters in return for just $15.


7)   CINDERELLA STORY: Former housemaid bags Best in Swimsuit in Bb. Pilipinas 2015

Twenty-five-year-old model and makeup artist, Pia Wurtzbach, may have taken the top prize as Bb. Pilipinas-Universe, but the best story out of the competition was Janicel Lubina.

The 19-year-old Lubina was the daughter of a domestic helper and formerly a house maid herself in Palawan. She was discovered by a local makeup artist and has since seen her career grow—her victories at the recently concluded Bb. Pilipinas 2015 currently its peak.

Lubina won the Bb. Pilipinas-International crown, the Best In Gown award, and the Best In Swimsuit plum. And we say deservingly so: 


8)   PRESIDENTS CAN BE FUNNY: Obama on Mean Tweets

Manny Pacquiao's favorite TV talk show host, Jimmy Kimmel, has a segment called "Mean Tweets," where celebrities read nasty things said about them on Twitter.

The last celebrity to be featured was none other than the President of the U.S.A.:

Man, how we'd kill for a version of this featuring our own P-Noy!


9)   THROW THAT MAN OUT: This year's ugliest NCAA flagrant foul is something we'd never wish on our own enemies

During the second half of an NCAA game between Southern University and Texas Southern, this nasty, little incident happened:

That's Texas Southern's Malcolm Riley being clotheslined in the air by Southern University's Trelun Banks and body-slammed right after by another Southern University player.

As consolation, Riley's team won, 62-58.


10)   DRUGS PA MORE: Ecstasy and crystal meth legal in Ireland for the weekend


In Ireland, the possession of drugs including ecstasy, crystal meth, ketamine, and psilocybin mushroom was made legal for at least one day last week.

The mind-altering substances were rendered legal after a court ruling invalidated the nation's Misuse of Drugs Act 1977. Ireland's Court of Appeal ruled that those drugs had unconstitutionally been added to the law, and so the government had to amend it accordingly. Unfortunately for the psychedelic-loving Irish people, they were in a country that doesn't take decades to fix things, and the said drugs were made illegal again after a 24-hour reprieve.

If that had happened in the Philippines, now that would've been another story!
