This week the Cracked staffers are in New York, transferred as part of an employee exchange with the city. They send a few dozen hobos over to Los Angeles to work as mules for our counterfeit viagra operation, and in return we keep the subways filled with acceptable amounts of excrement and panhandling.

It's been a busy week, but we're pleasantly surprised at how many of our comedy writer skills transfer to the world of professional hobo-ery. We have to shower more often now, but the relative lack of stabbings sort of evens it out.

Adam Brown opened our week with a look at just how much shit we let celebrities get away with. Felix Clay was next, listing the stupidest things ever done on a dare. Chris Bucholz revealed the video game urban legends that are actually hoaxes while Soren Bowie discussed the ways nature brainwashes you into taking care of babies. Brockway studied products built for the love lives of creepy sociopaths and Felix came back around to list depressingly unfunny gag gifts. John Cheese delved into the seedy world of Yuletide crime and Dan O'Brien ended our week on an up note with five videos to brighten your day.
