Cracked Round-Up: Micro-Nation Edition

After a lot of scrimping and saving, Cracked has managed to put together just enough money to buy its very own sovereign island off the coast of Florida. Some of you are probably asking 'why'. Which means you're woefully unfamiliar with the anti-viagra laws that permeate so much of Central and South America. In less than three weeks we've set up a distribution network that spans from Guatemala to Peru. It doesn't seem to matter that all our pills are just aspirin painted blue.


Start your week off right with crippling depression thanks to Gladstone's column on things that are much sadder than they should be. Soren Bowie revealed some fan bases you won't believe exist and Luke McKinney looked at video games that did it wrong (and the games that made them look like fools). Brockway upped the testosterone count with magazine covers so manly they'll make your ball hair grow hair and John Cheese wrote the least comforting article on parenting ever. Dan O'Brien gave some unmistakeable signs you're getting old while Seanbaby closed us off with the biggest cheaters in game show history.

Dear God, Senyor_Ghosto, it's staggering just how much we've lost.
