Also, the MTV VMAs are this Sunday, which are suuuuure to provide more than a few wild moments to talk about at the office NEXT Monday. Before we can get to all of that excitement though, powering through five days of commuting is required. Check out a handful of musts to make those trips more amusing, below.
1. Man Buns of Disneyland: Clearly the Internet thirst for attractive men and [insert object or place here] can’t be quenched. We’ve seen (and followed) @menandcoffee and @hotdudeswithdogs.

Not to be overshadowed by @dilfs_of_disneyland is this latest man bun-centered and Disneyland-themed Instagram account that you’re sure to be hooked on the whole way to the office. Pro tip: grab a fan to cool off from the sight of all these 10s.
