Friday morning. It’s been a long week but you are almost there. Just a few more calls, one more meeting and then the weekend and freedom awaits. We know you need a little extra boost to get you through the final day of the workweek and luckily, Poker Central and Death Wish Coffee have you covered. The world’s strongest coffee gives you a “Morning Perk,” bringing you the best of the internet from the past week.

The internet wasn’t around when Ferris Bueller gave everyone the perfect high school yearbook quote but his words are just as powerful today as there were in the late 80’s.

Kendrick Lamar may not have the mainstream draw that Drake does or the “greatest artist of our generation” billing that I gave Kanye West last month but King Kendrick’s newest drop has everyone talking. The music video for “HUMBLE.”, Lamar’s newest single, was released yesterday and shows the rapper dressed as the Pope, sitting down for his last supper, hitting golf balls off a broken-down car and passing the Grey Poupon. From good kid, m.A.A.d city, to To Pimp a Butterfly, to untitled unmastered., Kendrick continues to drop hits and “HUMBLE.” is just that.

Thanks to the Ringer’s Shea Serrano, everyone can now know what kind of NBA player they are. *Takes quiz* “Congratulations, your NBA player archetype is: Highly Regarded Non-threat. You’re Old Dirk Nowitzki.” What the ****?
