Cracked Round-Up: Funspiracies Edition!

There's no reason the total subjugation of the human race has to be a downer! Cracked has been contracted by the New World Order and the Not Excessively Far World Order in a new kind of media campaign.

That's correct, Jurp. And then all the rich people would move to the moon and breathing air would suddenly be "lame". They'd call you shit like "lungie" and "air-face" and we'd be forced to turn the moon into a missile dumpster.
