6 Famous Movies That Were Shockingly Hard to Make 7 Spectacularly Crazy Lessons Taught by Real Teachers 4 Shocking Psychological Dark Sides of Being Funny

Cracked Round-Up: Batman Movie, What Batman Movie? Edition

What, a movie came out this week? About whom? We never heard anything about that. They don't unlock this part of the office very often.


Batman week at Cracked has finally wound down, so let's take a look back at the highlights! Brendan McGinley started out by explaining why Batman always wins and Adam Brown took us out of the comic realm with insane music videos that pre-date MTV. Chris Bucholz wrote a guide to dealing with a gerbil stuffed up your ass while Ian Fortey peered into the darkness within all of our souls. Brockway looked at the crazy lessons 80s movies wanted to teach us and John Cheese explained why today's kids don't understand what 'nerd' means. Gladstone covered famously bad movies that kick ass and Dan brought us back to full circle with a look at life after Nolan's batman.

He had the procedure done because of gaping, non-healing pressure ulcers. His name was Stan and (I swear I'm not making this up) we called him Stan the half-man."
