It's a sad week. It's a Monday. Worse, it's a Monday after a Sunday that saw our hero, Manny Pacquiao lose to the country's most-hated man right now. Thankfully, we can turn to the Internet to somehow distract us from the pain induced by the loss.

Heads up, everyone! This too shall pass, and our Best Of The Weekend list should make the passing a little faster.

BANZAI!: Japanese game show gets women to spread their legs

Another week, another nugget of weirdness from Japanese game shows. Just recently, we showed you a game show from the Land Of The Rising Sun that had male contestants getting jerked off while singing karaoke. Today, we have a game show that has a strange contraption that gets women to spread their legs. We can't understant the actual mechanics of the game, but one thing's for sure: Japan, you've done it again!

BEST/WORST SHOT OF THE WEEKEND: Chris Paul's game-winning, series-taking layup

Depending on which side of the fence you are on, Chris Paul's game-winning shot in Game 7 of their first round matchup against the Spurs (yes, this is from the first round) was the best or worst shot from the NBA that weekend.

Look at it here again (or if you're a Spurs fan, don't):

GRAPHICS FTW: Square Enix shows off their newest graphics system for Final Fantasy

Fans of videogame visuals had a lot to be happy about over the weekend. Square Enix revealed a new graphics engine known as Luminous Studio that ran on DirectX 12 for Windows 10, Microsoft's latest graphics interface.

The demo was called "Witch Chaper o [ cry]" and it made us cry over how REAL it looked:

HELL YES: Megan Fox dressed like a schoolgirl  for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2

The new TMNT movie will be hitting theaters on June 3, 2016. The first images from on-set shooting have emerged—and luckily they were of April O'Neill, played by Megan Fox. The best part? Her character, for some reason we couldn't care less about, is wearing a very sexy schoolgirl uniform. Suddenly, we plan on watching this Turtle movie.

OUR TIME TO SHINE: We can now stop going to the gym, thanks to the new "Dadbod" trend

One website describes the "Dadbod" as a body type that says "I go to the gym occasionally, but I also drink heavily on the weekends and enjoy eating eight slices of pizza at a time."


That sounds like us, doesn't it? And the trendmakers say it's about to be the cool thing soon. Beer belly nation, represent!

Here's one pioneer that's doing just that, right now:

Star Wars: The Force Awakens continues the Star Wars tradition of Vanity Fair covers.

We don't usually post magazine covers that aren't ours, but we'll make an exception for the latest one by entertainment magazine, Vanity Fair, for one big reason: They're featuring Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The magazine has been known to feature the series every time a new big film comes out. And God knows we're a sucker for anything Force Awakens!

The cover, which features Chewbacca, Rey (Daisey Ridley), Han Solo (Harrison Ford), Finn (John Boyega), and BB-8, was posted on the Vanity Fair website:

SNL, had a better version of the May-Pac fight. 

The real May-Pac fight made us sad. The fake May-Pac fight, as satirized by SNL, made us happy and filled us with laughter. Watch it here:

NOTHING TO SEE HERE, GENTS: Just a a lingerie footballer chugging beer! 

In case you didn't know, lingerie football is a real thing—which is like American football, minus the jocks, and with girls in lingerie replacing them. The site Theladbible.com shared one of the sport's most important highlights in history: a player named Alli Alberts running onto the field and chugging beer like Stone Cold Steve Austin.

Definitely beats all the NFL celebrations we've ever witnessed:

BEST WEEKEND EVER: Australian police posts photo of a marijuana user's to-do list

The Twitter account of a police squad based in Western Australia posted a note they found during a property search conducted over the weekend. It was the to-do list of a pot smoker, featuring exactly the things you'd expect a stoner to do:

Some guys just know how to make the best of their time!

Grand Theft Auto 2 in real life

Today's Grand Theft Auto games tow the line between videogames and reality with their graphics. Not so with the earlier Grand Theft Auto games for the original Playstation. That probably triggered the maker of the clip below to imagine what those games would look like if they were realistic. The thing was, he didn't make any mods or crafted CGI scenes; instead he filmed it with a real camera, real cars, and real people.


Pretty awesome job, we must say:
