Most Horrifying Writers Room Ever

Prologue: In December of 2010, the Editors of Cracked.com decided to try what official documents refer to as "doing a thing" wherein they locked three of their regular writers in a conference room for 30 days. The writers--Michael Swaim, Cody Johnston and Daniel O'Brien--were tasked with creating as many comedically-themed sketch videos as they could in the time allotted.

We may never know what truly caused The Incident. All of the information we have was cobbled together from video footage, interviews, and various "found documents," such as personal journal entries, left behind by the writers. The only things we can concretely state are that the time limit was not adhered to, and that the conference room descended into madness well before day 6.
