Summer is turning up the heat in an effort to make this Monday even sunnier, hotter, and consequently, more miserable. So how about we blow some cool air in your direction with the coolest tidbits and most relevant man-news we cobbled up over the past two days for FHM's Best Of The Weekend!

Here goes nothing!

 The comedian, known for his "panggagatong" humor, fell on hard times due to an addiction to methamphetamines that culminated in imprisonment  from 2004 to 2008. Since being released on bail in 2008 with assistance from Bossing himself, however, Ritchie has been able to avoid further brushes with the law, up until his death last Saturday. 

Thanks for the laughter, Mr. D'Horsie.

Lalaki sadyang nagpapabangga!

Move over, Budol-Budol Gang. A new modus has been uncovered by ABS-CBN that involves scammers faking getting hit by a car. Just when a car is about to pass by the "victim," the individual intentionally jumps in the way, and acts like he got legitimately hit.

The victim then asks for "areglo" money that ranges from P5,000 to P20,000.
