Cracked Round-Up: Day Trading Edition

Earlier this week Bill from HR hit upon a genius idea to pull in the extra funding we need for Dan's time-traveling pedophile show. Using some money we "acquired" from several months worth of diligent mugging, we put together enough seed money to start playing the stock market. Things went pretty well for the first nineteen or twenty seconds, but then we blew through all of our money and ended up mortgaging the office to some Chinese machine tools conglomerate. So, um, if you need machine tools produced in high volume, choose Wuxing International!


The Internet isn't big on honesty, so it's good that people like Cody are out there to take Tumblr's inspirational photos to task. Soren Bowie sought out the one movie in Hollywood history to take the athletic, rich bullies side and Chris Bucholz helped our readers fill out the bottom of their bucket lists. Christina pointed out ads that were less about selling the product and more about crazy bullshit while John Cheese looked at how the Internet is ruining the rest of the world. If that got you feeling bummed out, Brockway's collection of mind-blowing protestors caught on camera should pick you back up. Then you can bask in the comparative joy of not being Dan O'Brien when you read about the Taxi that hit him.

Notable Comment:"I work in a field rarely covered (if at all) by the movie industry. Hospital support staff. I don't recall ever seeing a movie where anything remotely like my job comes up. Even through the whole series of ER, never once did I see mention of Sterile Services, even though most of the people I've known in the job have been quite interesting, slightly oddball and fun people to know. I feel under-represented."

Sorry, Tyburn. Maybe Sterile Services guys don't quip particularly well.
