Cracked Round-Up: Monkey Edition

It took years of hard lobbying, but we finally got corporate to foot the bill for a thousand monkeys, a thousand typewriters, and one giant padded room. Our thinking was, if they can bang out the words to Shakespeare eventually, doing a weekly round-up should be no problem. Sadly we'll never get to know if we were right.

Notable Comment: "Good article, but you're kind of a twat. Making fun of radiation in Ukraine is like making fun of oppression of the blacks by the whites in the U.S.A. Or making fun of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Or the was in Vietnam. Or slavery, world economy, Iraq, Cuba, etc. etc. Catch my drift? Your nation is not all candy and ice-cream cones as you would like to believe. You probably get more radiation just from eating a microwaved meal than you would from living near a nuclear power plant.
