CRACKED ROUND-UP: Movember Edition

Rather than do the traditional Movember thing, all Cracked employees have been ordered to save our facial hair shavings. At the end of the month, we'll take the whole pile and hire a voodoo warlock to turn it into a deadly hair golum, and then we won't ever have to stand in line at the Dunkin' Donuts again.


Soren explored the world of fashionable suits for everything from business to bear fighting. Bucholz followed up with a leaked chapter from what we sincerely hope is the next Harry Potter book. Brockway used Fallout: New Vegas to delve deep into his terrifying psyche while Seanbaby gave a devastatingly accurate portrayal of grade school gaming. Dan O'Brien tore apart the new Green Lantern movie trailer and found a steaming pile of plagiarism.
