Cracked Round-Up: Whale-Fighting Edition

Things that aren't challenging aren't worth doing. Which is why our office fight club has recently had a change of focus. Punching people is easy. Too easy. But hand to fin combat with a blue whale? Now that's a challenge. Some people will say you can't beat a whale with your bare hands, but they just aren't thinking creatively enough. A whale's weak spot is the blow hole. The trouble is getting a foot or a fist inside that thing. We'd recommend finding a small child to sort of jam in there like a cork. You'd be surprised how well that works.


Christina got our week started on a fiscally responsible note with the least useful money saving tips ever written. Brockway turned a hard eye on us all with a look at the reasons Hollywood sucks. Fortey delved into the ridiculous things you never hear about life as an adult and Seanbaby looked at relationship tips from a crazy woman at Fox news. John Cheese covered the excuses we make for our bad behavior while Dan O'Brien took Internet journalism to task and showed some really great pictures of Dinosaur O-faces.
