Cracked Round-Up: Temperance Edition

We're looking at the end of an era, folks. Cracked has banned all forms of intoxication in our office. Sobriety police are already combing the company roster, tracking down inebriates and separating them from their vile drugs. Unfortunately, our databases only have information on prescribed drugs. So mostly we've been stealing painkillers from Ted in accounting. He broke his leg like, a week ago.


Michael Swaim broke into the office and snuck a plea for employment to the Onion up on his column. Joe Donatelli went all detective on the guys who robbed his house while Chris Bucholz showed scientists passing luck off as skill. Tom Reiman explored misleading movie posters and Cyriaque brought us the miserable experiences you can't avoid at Comic-Con. Brockway proposed a new set of jobs for Hollywood, before Adam Brown enjoyed the comforts of a shitty hotel room. John Cheese closed our week with a set of reminders the whole world could use right now.

Notable Comment: "This one time, when I was a kid, my mom called me in to the kitchen and yelled at me for spilling syrup on the floor. But heres the thing-I DIDNT DO IT, my brother did, so I ratted his ass out. So she calls my brother in, and do you what he did? HE DENIED IT!!! Bastard! Well, to make a long story short, since my mom couldnt prove who did it, she smacked the s**t out of both of us and sent us to bed."
