"Children are the future" is a phrase that's taken on an increasingly terrifying meaning as the years have passed. After all, it used to refer to people like us who would grow up to do great and amazing things. Now, it refers to the kind of people who appear on Wheel of Fortune: College Edition but literally can't solve a puzzle even with every letter showing (also defined as "reading").
Host Adam Tod Brown welcomes his Cracked co-workers Luis Prada and Randall Maynard to discuss the awful future that the youth of the nation have in store for us. Not to be outdone, comic Nick Hoff joins the show as well, and he's not just talking about kids ... he brought one. Chaos ensues!
Actual impending doom like global climate change or mass extinction just makes people bored.
In some cases, the Marvel source material just did better.
