As you've no doubt noticed, we here at "the Cracked" are primarily motivated by charitable concerns -- hence the lack of any kind of merchandising on the site, and our stalwart forgoing of any and all advertising dollars hurled at us by passersby.
Just kidding! Obviously we're complete and total sellouts who gleefully inject subliminal corporate messages into your brain with each and every Ad-Bearing Content Unit we churn out (you call them "articles"). But you know what sucks worse than all those ads we make you look at, and even worse than the ones you don't know about?
Malaria. That's not a punchline. Don't look for the funny. Malaria sucks.
That's why we have momentarily set aside our petty goal of piling the most money that's ever been piled and instead turn our sights to eradicating a terrible disease and piling the most money that's ever been piled, but for charity (and tax write-off purposes).
