Well folks, it's finally happened. Cracked Magazine is entirely out of drugs. There wasn't any one cause for the tragedy. It all came down to an unfortunate conflux of Brockway's latest bender, one of our interns getting busted by customs, and the fact that giving pigeons coke is goddamn hysterical. Desperation and sobriety have forced us to take drastic measures. Namely, raiding the spice cabinet for the thirty pound bag of nutmeg we've had stashed away for just such an occasion.
All told, the high is pretty good. But the twelve hours of pooping and vomiting have really done a number on our staff bathroom. Once Francois gets back from prison, he's gonna have a lot of clean-up to do.

Bucholz told you why to stop bragging on the Internet while Soren Bowie took the elderly to task. Robert Brockway reviewed ADD medicine and Adam Brown discussed parking lot etiquette. John Cheese tried once again to quite smoking and editor Jack O'Brien revealed the weirdly specific things famous actors do in every single movie. Dan O'Brien ended the week with the sad story of his search for a shaggy best friend.
