Police sketch artists, speed bumps, late-night talk shows and the QWERTY keyboard all have one thing in common: They're shitty ideas that have somehow gained immortality. On this podcast, Cracked editors Jack O'Brien, Dan O'Brien and Robert Evans talk about bad ideas that refuse to go away. We're not being tongue-and-cheek about the "bad" part either -- speed-bumps kill eighty-five people for every life they save and, seriously, have you ever watched Jay Leno? That man is an engine fueled purely by nostalgia.

If you're ready for a crash course in how some of the worst ideas manage to live forever, throw on your headphones and click play above, go here to subscribe on iTunes or download it here.
