5 Scenes From History That Everyone Pictures Incorrectly The 4 Most Baffling Driving Behaviors Everyone Encounters 5 Movies That Made Huge Stars Quit Acting Forever

Cracked Round-Up: Prank Week Edition

'April Fools Day' is for posers. Real prank masters- people who truly understand the social purpose of pranking, know that having a set day for pranks does nothing but water down their impact. We do it differently here at Cracked. Starting April 1st, we roll a 30-sided die every morning until the number rolled coincides with the date. Once prank 'day' starts, it doesn't end until all but one staff member is either dead, hospitalized, or has surrendered. Swaim usually wins, but this month was our first tie in company history. Kudos to Mitch from accounting for dispersing that nerve gas through the building AC units.


It's been a busy week for our columnists. Adam Brown started off by pandering to the jet set with his critique of flight safety presentations. Christina followed up by tapping into the fears of people who are bad with kids. Seanbaby looked at instructional videos that can't possibly help anyone while Bucholz broke into P. Diddy's home. Robert Brockway dissected the revenge fantasies every man has and John Cheese advised our readers on how to ruin their relationships. Adam Brown wound us down with depressing songs that seem upbeat as Dan O'Brien closed us off with fun places that awkward people can't handle.

6 Terrifying Children's Cartoons from Around the World
Modern kid's cartoons are so clean and sanitized, it's to forget that some countries don't give a crap about traumatizing their youngsters.


Notable Comment: "Didn't you guys do an article a while back about how we coddle our children into their teens, then shove them all unprepared into the cold, cruel world?"

That's a good point, JCollier. But we can't help thinking there has to be a middle ground between 'coddling' and 'PTSD'.

CaitlinQua, we'd love to do another article on history or war. But unfortunately our next month worth of articles are all based around surprising facts about dromedary genitals.

That makes perfect sense to us, Gash.
