Cracked Round-Up: Natural Selection Edition

As the recession drags on, Cracked continues to cut costs. Right now we're trying to cut out our need for a copy-editor by punishing errors in grammar, spelling or punctuation with brutal flailing and public execution.

This week started with the long-awaited trailer for John Dies at the End. We hear if you watch it 1,000 times, the secrets to life, happiness and a four-hour orgasm are revealed. Luke McKinney followed up with the most inexplicably preposterous self-defense weapons. Those of you with room-mates who don't like the JDATE trailer repeating for days on end may want to give this a look. Christina H. was next, with some observations about the wonderfully inane things public speakers fall back on in lieu of content. Chris Bucholz tried his hand at the lucrative field of auction hunting while John Cheese gave the Internet's first practical advice on dealing with bullies without ending up shanked or imprisoned. Seanbaby vented his man-gland with a collection of the most scientifically badass video game covers as Dan O'Brien took us into the minds of America's most sorely tested presidents.
