Boy, we work hard at the Cracked offices. Sure, we don't have to do any heavy lifting or moving of any kind. And sure, the only real "work" we do generally involves watching TV and writing stupid dick jokes about whatever we see. And sure, we rarely even get out of our chairs. And, fine, we don't have uniforms or bosses or schedules or anything even resembling real jobs.
But it's Labor Day Weekend, dammit, and we are going to appreciate the hell out of ourselves with some hardcore barbecuing and some hardercore drinking.
Labor Day Rules!

The 10 Most Shameless Product Placements in Movie History

Notable Comment: CodyCastor says "I've posted like a thousand comments on this damn site, and have yet to receive any compensation from Domino's. I think Cracked is burgling my royalties. Eat Domino's pizza--it's slightly better than gas station burritos!" Haha, thanks Cody. You keep writing them, and we'll keep cashing Domino's sweet, sweet checks.

The 5 Lamest Disasters in Disaster Movie History
In honor of Disaster Movie, which will also be a disaster, but of a completely different nature.
Notable Comment: Ruby_Tuesday_83 says "can I just point out nothing living can just stand beside lava then run away no matter how slow it's going. The temperature alone would burn that dogs face off." Uh, did you see the movie? A dog stood next to the lava, and then ran off with its face totally intact. So, to answer your question, No, you cannot point this out. Also, Ruby Tuesday sucks. Big time.

Disturbing Origins of 5 Common Nursery Rhymes
It's like 300, but for kids!
Notable Comment: For the second time in Cracked History, one poster will make the coveted Notable Comments section twice in one article! CodyCastor calls out basically everyone in the comment section when he says "The nursery rhyme_____isn't about_____. It's about the time when_____did_____to______way back in_____. I could have shot over to Wikipedia in a pathetic attempt to fill in these blanks and sound like I'm intelligent. I didn't, though, because being an expert on fucking nursery rhymes is nothing to be proud of. Assholes." It's like he can read our minds.
