Not too long ago, Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling came to the defense of Serena Williams on Twitter after somebody said she was “built like a man.” Now, if you dare try to say something like that about Ronda Rousey, we’ll say a prayer for you because athletes, like LeBron James and fellow MMA fighter Conor McGregor, wouldn’t dare step into the Octagon with Rousey, so what makes you so special? But just in case you want to call Rousey’s body “masculine,” she has a message for you.

Deep inside some top secret sports blog laboratory within the internet’s most secluded mountain bunker, a mad scientist stood silently, staring at his work. “She’s perfect,” he remarked about the human woman who was floating inside a large glass cylinder. “Perfect swing, powerful striking ability, effortless follow through,” he said to his assistant. “But sir, why did you make her so hot?” the assistant asked. “Clicks, Kevin,” the scientist said. “Mad clicks.” This is how we imagine former San Diego State University golfer Paige Spiranac was created, because holy sh*t — that is one good looking athlete.

In what can be described as, “Doublemint Dumb”, JOB and Poopies decide to tandem surf Pipeline of a way too gnarly of a day…in speedos of course. When the rains come in heavy, the crew goes to a drainage ditch and uses it as an XL waterslide. But the idea of the day is the blob launcher that JOB sets up next to a popular Waimea cliff diving spot.
