Unpopular Opinion Podcast: Do Kids Prove We're Doomed? 5 Terrifying Ways Police Can Legally Screw You Over 5 Types of Movie Adaptations That Must Be Stopped

CRACKED ROUND-UP: Tragic Love Story Edition

We'd like to take this time to commemorate the loss of two of our interns. They were star-crossed lovers, working for departments with a long and storied rivalry. Rather than report their liaison to HR, they decided to take poison and end their lives. Any claims that the deaths were due to improperly prepared cafeteria lettuce are pure fancy.


Soren started us off with movies that sucked until reality backed them up. Bucholz followed up with a treatise on exterminating bed bugs while Brockway wrote about scientists pushing drugs on animals. Seanbaby revised Smokey The Bear's origin story and Dan O'Brien closed us off with a horrifying look at what lesser networks would do to Dexter.
