Cracked Round-Up: 4th of July Edition

Attention readers! A recent office party has ended with everyone in the office either hospitalized, or arrested. They're holding us on charges of Public Intoxication, Public Nudity, Conspiracy to Commit Arson, and selling military secrets to North Korea. (Thanks a lot, Intern Kang). It's like the FBI doesn't even understand how to celebrate the 4th anymore.


Soren Bowie kicked this week's face in with a guide to understanding hipsters. Chris Bucholz followed up with a helpful guide to iPhone 4 connection issues. Cody reviewed a review of Toy Story 3 while Brockway confirmed all suspicions of his robot fetish. Seanbaby started his own woman's magazine and was immediately slapped with 14 discrimination (and 11 paternity) suits. Dan O'Brien capped the week with the tortured life of Mel Gibson's publicist.

Notable Comment: "There were originally 8 deadly sins and they were written by Evagrius Ponticus and they were gluttony, greed, sloth, sorrow, lust, anger, vainglory, and pride. "

Boy, HardcoreOgre, Ponticus wasn't very creative. We've invented twice that many deadly sins in the last half-hour alone.

Notable Comment: "There's actually a very simple solution to the sex offender problem. Put a brand on their face that will tell everyone who they are. Some sort of scar or tattoo, like they used to do in Puritan New England for adulterers. "

kanna172003, Puritan New England may not be the best place to take our social queues from.
