Charles Barkley and Shaquille O'Neal completed their "Shirt Off" competition on Tuesday night.  Shaq had a funny surprise for Barkley.

 Charles Barkley has been routinely bragging about his slimmed-down physique on TNT's "Inside the NBA."  Barkley has been endorsing Weight Watchers for months now.  He has been able to shed a lot of weight.  Barkley's bragging eventually led to a "Shirt Off" competition between Sir Charles and Shaquille O'Neal to prove whose body is slimmer.

Shaq clearly won the competition, but the Big Diesel dipped into his bag of tricks to make his appearance look even better.  Shaq had a six pack painted onto his stomach to make his abs look even more chiseled.  It was a very funny move by Shaq.  You could tell right away that Shaq's abs were artificially enhanced.  The TNT staff just gets it.  They know that they are not just talking hoops.  They fully understand that they are providing entertainment.  Good stuff.
