Since this is the last round-up in March, that means it's the last time we can celebrate Cracked History Month. It was a crazy month that was, sadly, overshadowed by some governor and some not-so-discreet boning that he may or may not have been involved with. Let's take just a few moments to ignore Governor Spitzer for a change and think about some of the heroes that have made Cracked what it is: Christian Bale, Nikola Tesla and the guy who invented boobs... God?
Ah. Wasn't that nice, taking a break from Spitzer? Refreshing, right? If that isn't nice, we don't know what is. Alright, on with the round-up.
This week on the best thing to happen to blogging since fingers, Ross gives us a terrifying video of some kind of headless robot monster dog. Also, Chris Bucholz, the only Cracked blogger that's even remotely aware of what's going on in the world, wants Cracked to boycott the Olympics. Meanwhile, Swaim blogs from the future to hilariously inaccurate results, Gladstone's found the secret for recording a winning Radiohead video, and Dan O'Brien prepares you to hate Twondock Saints.

Notable Comment: Quellish says "I don't see what the big deal about putting your dick in sheep intestines is. I mean, nights on the farm can get kind of lonely. That's why I use the farmer's dating site, sheepmingle.com." Really great stuff.

Would anyone seriously miss an ant called the "Slavemaker"? Seriously?
Notable Comment: In yet another adventure in obscure, pointless commenting, somebody wrote a poem, or a rap song or something. Some shit. Somebody else posted a freakishly long list of United States political families. Let's see, a debate whether or pandas were bears or raccoons (or wolverines?) emerged, and some guy named Neil really wants us to check out his Notes, (hint: nowhere near as helpful as Cliff's when it comes to studying for a lit theory test). Join us next week when we write an article about video games and the comments section is devoted to sandwiches or apartheid or whatever.

Notable Comment: Chiemilin says "Every time I read these stories I can't see the video clips when I click on them. Could this be beacause I'm at work and there is a block on youtube? Maybe I'm the lucky one because I'll still be able to eat luch but I can't help feeling like I've missed something. As far as the block on youtube goes... the joke is on my company for only blocking like 3 sites, cracked not being one of them and probably the most scandelous. Take that unnamed corporate franchise!" Ahaha, victory! You might say we slipped through the cracks of your corporations security? No? Please don't delete our bookmark.

Notable Comment: ParanoiaVII says "I've been avoiding registering up until now, but I have to say a big hearty THANK YOU to Cracked for mentioning Meucci in this article. The whole telephone-thieving debacle is a real sore spot with us Italian Americans, and we long to see the history books re-written to the truth. Thank you so much!" This site was founded on the simple principle of rewriting history, and we're glad to see people are starting to recognize us for it. Also, "poop."
We wouldn't know anything about that ... Seriously. Uh, ask anyone.
