6 Hilarious Old-Timey Versions of Modern Vices The 5 Worst Things About Getting a Job in a Small Town The 6 Most Undeserving Lottery Winners in History

CRACKED ROUND-UP: Celebrating Failed New Year's Resolutions Since 1958.

On the plus side, getting permanently banned from the gym for steam room shenanigans is a lot better than just losing interest and wussing out.


The first sober (mostly) week of the year started with the story of Soren's latest abduction by drug lords. Bucholz followed up with a tale of holiday regret, while Brockway highlighted the terrible danger the Cracked book puts all of America in. Seanbaby graded shitty woman's self-defense books and Dan O'Brien closed us off with the shattered life of an idealistic intern. We know a lot about that, here at Cracked.

If comic book writers liked working hard, they wouldn't be comic book writers.



Notable Comment:"Those villains should've realized that no woman can resist the urge to fall in love with/want to f**k Batman."

DON'T FEED THE TROLLS
The 6 Most Disastrous Attempts at Internet Damage Control

One day people will realize that the only way to WIN against the Internet is to ignore it.



Notable Comment:

"Maybe the girl should have been shredding f**king papers instead of on Facebook. She was at work. They shouldn't have fired her for the content of the posts, they should have fired her because of the fact that instead of being the best damned paper shredder this side of the Mississippi, she decided to go on Facebook."

KingMotion totally understands how human beings work. The average person is totally capable of throwing their whole being into a meaningless, repetitive job for eight hours straight every day. There's no way that would end in suicide.
