The X most blankiest somethings in the history of whatever. It's "...one stupid article that, (due to its total lack of focus and consistency) not one person will fully enjoy".

A list from Cracked making fun of lists from Cracked? I bet this will be hilarious.

Is there a new "convert browser history to Cracked article" plugin for Firefox?

I cought this earlier today and actually loved it, but then again, I'm tasked with writing a humorous top-ten list every week, and so I know the pain of having one thing that you really want to talk about, without the five or six other things you'd need to flesh out the rest.

I think cracked is hilarious and support any post that makes the haters whine.

Go humor!

Top [X] Statues That I Kind of Want To Have Sex With - smirk

Top [X] Statues That I've Had Sex With - a bit funnier because it makes you think about the act more.

This raises similar questions to the claim that a man had sex with Airwolf.

I just to like Cracked before Metafilter destroyed my innocence forever... curse you! Curse you all!

I used to read Cracked as a kid. It was never as good as Mad, but there was some quality in there. It's weird to me that now it's pretty much only known as stupid top [X] lists. Do they even still make the magazine?

saul wright: yes. it is just as bad as you think it is.

...yes. it is just as bad as you think it is.

Sadly, Mad is no great shakes either, these days. They have actual, non-spoofy advertisements now. (And it still costs 5 bucks! CHEAP)

I liked Cracked. Their lists are often entertaining. I don't really get the hate. Of course they're easy to produce, the point is just that people enjoy lists.

people enjoy lists

Cites, please.

People actually love lists on MeFi. Mainly they love shouting at them and claiming they are the worst thing ever, but they still love them. Put anything in the form of a list and it'll get a ton of comments.

(As for cracked-hate, well in my case it's more than a little tongue in cheek and dates back to when we got 1-2 cracked.com posts a day. That went away so I;m not *really* that angry at cracked posts, honest)

I didn't have much faith that things would go well after Bill Gaines died in '92. It was a comic magazine based around the personality of its founder.

When I started buying MAD, I was paying 25 cents. I remember being a bit miffed to see it go up to 75 cents. I think I stopped buying it regularly when it was around $1.25 (not because of the price, really).
