To quote the Sound of Music, these are two of my favorite things. Who doesn’t love adorable puppies and well-chiseled men? No one I can think of.

Pet retailer BarkBox’s new webseries titled “Pups and Pecs” is exactly what it sounds like. Shirtless men flaunting their pecs while holding pups. Whether it’s hailing a cab, washing dishes or conducting an office boardroom meeting, these cute canines are the perfect accessory.

Check out the first few episodes below. If you’re still yearning for more, new clips are uploaded every Monday.

Anthony Padilla and Ian Hecox aka the Smosh Brothers are known for pulling pranks on their guests. Imagine their surprise when Jennifer Lawrence, who’s equally known for being a good sport, appears irritated by their stunts. To be fair, pulling out a pita and referring it to as Peeta from the Hunger Games would annoy anyone. #cheesy

When Jennifer lays down the law (pun intended) and walks out the interview, Hecox is flummoxed and looks like he just shit his pants. J-Law’s co-stars, Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson, then appear to scold the interviewers about their unprofessional behavior. Shortly after, Jennifer rolls in to let them know that the tables have been reversed and that they were pranked.

All the hijinks were courtesy of Prank It Forward for a superfan named Dylan Miceli-Nelson who is suffering from muscular dystrophy. Check out the clip below. One of the highlights features Lawrence shooting an apple off Lecox’s head. Turns out, she has as good of an aim as her on-screen persona, Katniss.

With The Golden Girls celebrating the 30th anniversary of the premiere this year, plenty of homages have been made, honoring the fab foursome. Some hardcore fans, no doubt, will even dress up as them for Halloween tonight.

Speaking of Halloween, I stumbled upon this ghoulish clip re-imagining the lanai crew as iconic monsters. It’s the Golden Girls meets The Munsters. Betty White is now Count Dracula, while Bea Arthur puts on Frankenstein’s bolts. Check out the amusing clip below, including the new intro featuring the theme song, “Thank You For Being A FIEND.”

If a male equivalent of The Vagina Monologues existed, it probably would sound a lot like this. The Testicle Diaries anyone?

A new YouTube series, “The Boys” by Australian leisure brand Bonds gives a comedic look at the lives of your boys down under. I love how one of the balls is slightly lower than the other. Great attention to detail 😉

For the first time ever, Forbes has ranked the top-earning YouTube stars. They might not be household names, but these online personalities rake in the money for pretty much just talking. For instance, the top earner Felix Kjellberg aka PewwDiePie pulled in $12 million for his expletive-heavy video game commentaries.

“The list measures earnings before subtracting management fees and taxes. Our figures are based on data from Nielsen, IMDB and other sources, as well as on interviews with agents, managers, lawyers, industry insiders and the stars themselves,” according to Forbes.

The Playboy that your father and grandfather remember will be no more. The iconic publication announced it’ll stop publishing nude photos in the magazine. The accessibility to online pornography most probably played a factor in this decision. I suppose, Playboy, from now on, will truly be all about the articles.

The first issue of Playboy began its impact on popular culture in 1953. Marilyn Monroe snagged the first ever cover. The revamped version will still feature provocative photos of women, but more PG-13 than full-on cooch. The all-new Playboy hits newsstands in March 2016.
