Cracked Round-Up: Conspiracy Edition

This is not a drill. For the last six days, someone has been stealing all of the jelly donuts from our office break-room. We initially suspected Dan, but he's had a jelly phobia since he was a child. The only possibility we haven't been able to rule out is a massive, far-reaching government conspiracy. The CIA, NSA, IRS, DEA, and DART are all working together to sabotage our operation from the inside.

Oh...wait, no. It turns out we just forgot to order more. Shoot. We probably shouldn't have renounced our citizenship and started selling secrets to the Chinese.

Bucholz primed our comedy pump this week with an article about why Domino's pizza is the worst thing to happen to bowels since the velociraptor. Next, Brockway speculated on the origins of the Spider-Man reboot, while Seanbaby wrote up some comics for the ladies. Cody kept things moving with a scary story about Moons or something, and Dan O'Brien finished the week with a job offer for Conan O'Brien.

7 Common Survival Tactics (that Will Get You Killed)

The Boy Scouts filled your head with lies.



Notable Comment:

"The best thing you can do if you feel a lightning strike is imminent (i.e. hairs are standing up, you have no place to get inside or to low ground, etc) is to bend over w/ your ass in the air. Not kidding. The best you can hope for is the lightning to strike your butt, and go down your legs, avoiding stopping your heart. "

CroatGoat, we guess being sodomized by lightning is better than dying, but not by much.



BROKE

DANGER
8 Hilarious Brain Farts That Endangered National Security

Sleep tight tonight, everyone. Your security is in the hands of men Inspector Clouseau would consider incompetent.



Notable Comment:

"Seems like a lot of these are in England. Now, I'm English, but I assumed that these colossal security breaches just happened in every country. I mean, even the Spanish seem better than us, and those people can't run a piss-up in a brewery. "

Pedgerow, did you ever stop to wonder if your excellent beer and shitty national security might be connected?



COPPERS
7 Bullshit Police Myths Everyone Believes (Thanks To Movies)

Harmless Hollywood lies, or propaganda carefully inserted by the government to give us faith in the cops?



Notable Comment:

"Yeah, the Joker had to threaten a cop with a piece of broken glass for them to give him a cell phone. Watch the movies before critizing them. "

Dreadjaws, called us on it. No one at Cracked has ever seen Dark Knight. We were all busy doing 8-balls and watching Chocolate that evening.
