Cracked Round-Up: Post-Party Edition

Sweet vengeful undead Jesus, we're hungover. As most of you probably know, Cracked had its first annual office party earlier this week. Although the festivities ended several days ago, we're just now beginning to recover from the unique combination of alcohol poisoning and syphilis that accompanies any party attended by the Cracked columnists.

We'd love to stay in bed and nurse our wounds, but there's a round-up to finish. It'll be hard but, through a combination of dedication and Brockway's amphetamine and chocolate smoothies, we'll soldier on.

Cracked's week began with Gladstone pretending to be Kafka, followed by some revelations on the 2012 apocalypse by Bucholz. Brockway followed up with a retelling of the Cracked office party that may or may not have been accurate. We'll let you know what really went down when we find someone who didn't black out twenty minutes in. Afterwords, Seanbaby wrote a morale boosting article for our boys in Iraq, while Dan O'Brien brutally mocked Disney.

6 Ancient Sports Too Awesome for the Modern World

Before you judge our ancestors too harshly, try going a month without watching television, using the Internet, or reading any books. By the end of the second week you'll be willing to cage men in an arena and watch them fight to the death if it means an end to the boredom.



Notable Comment: "i hate to be THAT guy or whatever, but will you please stop using the words "mayan" and "mexican" interchangeably? they weren't ONLY in mexico, they were in PART of mexico and in a what is now central america....and of course no mayans were mexicans since mexico had yet to exist. i'm not whining or whatever, i just think it makes your otherwise good article cringeworthy...you know with the whole "you're all mexicans to me!" undertone to it. "

Sorry, zodiacdigital, but that's Cracked office law. Everything south of the US is Mexico, everything to the north is Canada, and everything else is either Europe or filled with dragons.

Notable Comment: "Wait, so if I drink s**t-loads of arsenic, then I'll become immune to arsenic? Fuck yeah! Sign me up for that! Hmm, while I'm at it, I might as well become immune to every other poison. Well, I'm off to the local pest control supply store, everyone wish me luck!"

DaveF, Cracked Legal would just like to make sure you understand that we cannot be held responsible in the event of your horrific, arsenic-related demise. That said, keep us updated on how your quest for superhuman immunity goes!

6 Historic Villains You Didn't Know Had Incredible Careers

Seriously, you can't expect someone to base their whole career on being a bastard. They had to fill the rest of their lives with something.



Notable Comment:"Louis XVI helped the USA (before it actually was the USA) for two other reasons: France owned some parts of the territory (Lousiana, anyone?) and he wanted to keep them; he wanted the consumer market the new country would provide. Let's not forget that the real reasons the USA won the war was because the Seven Years' War "taught" the colonist how to fight a war - these people were farmers, workers, not soldiers - and that England was really focusing the attention on Europe, leaving the colony to fight alone. Later, when the colony wanted to be indepent, Spain AND France sent help to the USA (which made the colony win the war; that would've been impossible without their help) - perhaps you should think about that when you're ranting about Mexicans getting into your country. "

We're not sure where Mexico comes into play here, tacamaral, but thanks for the otherwise informative comment.
