And just like that, Black History Month is over. Personally, we're still recovering from last night's Black-History-Month/Leap-Day Underwear Party. It was pretty wild.
Anyway, it's March, which means we can finally get the respect we deserve as the world celebrates Cracked History Month. All month long, we'll be recognizing people and things that have had an influence and impact on the Cracked cause. Dicks, for example. Where would we be without dicks?
While we're sitting around making papier-mache dick tributes, you can kick-off Cracked History Month the right way, with a friggin' round-up!
Mike Swaim, perpetuating his role as the internet's foremost source for academic discourse regarding pornography, waxes philosophical on Gene Simmons' sex tape. In an incredibly rare move for the Cracked blog, Chris Bucholz reports on stuff that might actually be considered newsworthy. Returning to form, Ross has a video about The Sexman. Is it disturbing or endearing? You decide! Or, instead, just do your part in the war on Hannah Montana.
Scientology is ... Nice
We've decided to lead off with our video from this past week, in which we level some of the harshest and most well thought out critiques of Scientology ever put to film. It's the video that Tom Cruise tried to ban from the national internet, but couldn't. (Note to Tom Cruise only (regular readers skip this part): Hi, Tom Cruise. That was just a joke. Our readers expect those. Please don't sue us. Just parody. All in good fun old chap! Thanks for reading the site, by the way! Do ignore that cock shadow the forum members Photoshopped onto your face.)
