If you watch Regular Show on Cartoon Network, you're probably aware of a character that goes by the name of GBF, an acronym for Garrett Bobby Ferguson or Giant Bearded Face.

The character is a giant head with tiny arms and legs that cheats at video games and explodes when he loses.

What you might not know is that this character is based on a real-life person, and he's not happy about this portrayal.

According to Eurogamer, actual Garrett Bobby Ferguson, who holds the world record on Donkey Kong and was the first to reach 1 million points on Ms. Pacman, had his lawsuit against Cartoon Network thrown out.

Mitchell objected to this portrayal and so launched a lawsuit against Cartoon Network for damages.

But the legal challenge has now been thrown out by New Jersey Federal District Judge Anne Thompson.

"The television character does not match the plaintiff in appearance," Thompson ruled (via AP). "GBF appears as a non-human creature, a giant floating head with no body from outer space, while Plaintiff is a human being.

"And when GBF loses his title, the character literally explodes, unlike Plaintiff."

GBF will live to explode another day.

Jeopardy has had its fair share of strange and interesting contestants this year.

There was the contestant that got Alex Trebek to say "Turd Ferguson", Tom the super sexy contestant and Matt Jackson with his creepy smile.

But none has brought forth the wrath of the Internet like Laura Ashby and her interesting vocal fry.

Really, the Internet kind of hates her...a lot.

But at least she has a sense of humor about it. She's won over $36,802, and is still going strong.

Haterz gonna hate.

Fast Food of The Day: McDonald's in Japan Will Sell a 48-Piece Chicken Nugget Meal

48 chicken nuggets, 2,256 calories, no regrets.

McDonald's in Japan is planning on offering a 48-piece chicken nugget meal. The United States currently offers a 40-piece, so maybe this doesn't seem like a big deal.

But it is. Because the largest current chicken nugget meal in Japan is a 15-piece.

From Kotaku:

Likewise, the offer is for a limited time only. It's available only in Niigata Prefecture and part of a promotional tie-up with the the newly launched pop group NGT48, the Niigata-based spin-off of the massively popular idol unit AKB48. The groups tend to have around 48 members (sometimes more, sometimes less), divided up into different teams. That's a lot of idols. That's okay, this is a lot of nuggets. Forty-eight nuggets is surely a whole chicken, no? Fifty has to be.

King Curtis is very happy with this decision.

The classic "I Have No Idea What I'm Doing" dog meme just got a quick update.

Golden Bailey, the dog behind the meme, can be seen in these other hilarious photos posted to Reddit by the dog's owner.

Bailey still has no idea...

Wrestling may not be real, but Shark Boy is. The intreped ocean dweller was essential in the capture of a peeping tom in his own neighborhood. He didn't pull any of his signature moves on the criminal, but he did keep an eye on him until the police arrived to ensure his capture. 

If you want to know more about this mysterious hero, just watch this video:

He's clearly been through a lot already.
