Ferris Bueller's Ferrari and Exercising in a Suit

The weekend's ready to play ball.

Exercises for Gentlemen
SUIT UP

Exercises for Gentlemen

It happens. You wake up in Marrakesh with nothing but a suit, a headache and an insatiable desire to exercise. That's where this book comes in—it will teach you 50 different ways to stretch, lift and generally give your body a workout, while wearing formal garb. And should you choose to indulge in the occasional bit of sans-clothes relaxation, there's also a chapter on sponge baths.

Find your Benedict Arnold with this program, which tracks de-followers and even sends you your last tweet before your "friend" bailed. Because it's not you, it's them.

It's happened so many times: you're watching an emotionally gripping, gut-wrenching scene (like the burrito scene in Anchorman), and you find yourself wondering, "What are they eating?" Okay, so that rarely happens, but that didn't stop someone from putting together an extensive (and growing) database of recipes inspired by food in the movies. The monkey brains from Temple of Doom not included... yet.

The Ferrari from Ferris Bueller Goes Up for Sale

The Ferrari from Ferris Bueller Goes Up for Sale

In a co-starring role as itself, this Ferrari was quite possibly the most lust-worthy part of Ferris Bueller's Day Off. (A possible tie with Mia Sara.) And now, it can be yours, at auction, for a scant $67,000. Just be warned: they ran it backwards to lower the mileage.
