Cracked pays people to make smart memes. Visit the Photoplasty and Pictofacts Workshop to get in on it.

We are constantly being bombarded by subtle and not-so-subtle messages about how we should think and behave. The problem is, there's an incredible amount of contradiction in the messages we receive. "You're beautiful the way you are," but also, "make sure to hide your flaws with cosmetics."

We asked our readers to show us those contradictory messages, so you'll recognize them the next time they pop up. And, hopefully, you'll know not to pay attention to any of them.

Our thanks to jmrudow for suggesting this contest.
