Cracked Round-Up: A Message to New Graduates
It's March once more, and a whole sampler platter of new college graduates are within sight of graduation. We'd like to speak to those bright, hopeful young souls now. You've probably heard a lot about how horrible the job market is right now, but don't get disheartened! With enough hard work and dogged vigilance, you can succeed.
But hard work and dogged vigilance don't put food on the table. So, as a public service, we'd like to give you some advice:
1. You can usually get two good knifes from one bar of soap.
2. Vodka disinfects knife wounds and acts as a painkiller.
3. California's homeless shelters are pretty boss.
Good luck out there!

John Cheese brightened the mood with a look at why today won't suck. Chris Bucholz capped our week with a sobering look into the world of journalism.
