January 17 is, as you all know, the anniversary of the beginning of Operation Desert Storm. We here at Cracked observe this day every single year, and we SWEAR we didn't just type "January 17" into Wikipedia and pick the first important event we saw, just so we had a name for our round-up.

We totally didn't do that.

This week in blogging, Mike Swaim makes you feel uncomfortable with timeless female cartoon icons in unsettlingly graphic poses. Meanwhile, Bucholz gives you the frilly, disturbing truth about Pirates. Even more meanwhile, Brockway wants to get you high.
