From Mad Knockoff to Realist Knockoff

I knew that Cracked had evolved, or suddenly mutated, or temporarily ascended in an Algernon-style experiment that will end in misery and tears, into something funnier and more adult than its original incarnation as a mediocre Mad clone. But when did it start publishing Ingersollian satire and pop sociobiology?

  1. And then there’s this masterpiece from Michael Ian Black.

  2. Cracked is awesome. I’ve been loving their work lately.

  3. KIDS: Don’t fuck with God or bears will eat you

    Classic!

  4. http://www.GorillaMask.com has been linking to them a lot lately. good stuff

  5. Amazingly enough, nobody will be rioting in the streets are calling for the execution of Cracked publishers. American Christians are such wussies.

    Just kidding Christians. We atheists do appreciate your tolerance.

  6. Can we have a Venzuela thread?

    Please?

  7. Can we have a Venzuela thread?

    Soon, grasshopper. It’s Monday morning and the Reason staff has to sleep off their katzenjammers and get back to their brutal jobs of posting on a website.

  8. joe: I will give you a Venezuela thread, in which you may say “I told you so!” with loud report. I will do this for you, if you bring me the foreskins of a hundred statists.

  9. Can we have a Venzuela thread?

    Please?

    joe, I gratiously admit I was wrong in my first prediction here.
    Gloat, you bastard. 😉
    Good news, indeed.

  10. I’m not going to gloat.

    I’m just gong to do this. A lot.

    Joe,

    I think at this point what you say is:

    “I liked Chavez, but he turned out to be a left wing thug, now I know he is an asshole and I am sorry for supporting him.”

    Then on a personal level you should reexamine your own left wing ideology for flaws that lead you down the wrong path.

  11. That’s some good stuff – both Cracked and Venezuela. Hopefully, they’ll both keep it up.

  12. Or, perhaps “donkey’s jawbone” was mistranslated from the original Hebrew word for “minigun.”

  13. Is it bad that I can fit my monkeysphere into my five?

  14. Dangerman:

    Only slightly tangentially, I just came across a letter to the editor of the American Journal of Medical Genetics which suggested that the biblical account of Eve being created from Adam’s rib is the result of a mistranslation of the word taken to be rib, but was actually referring to the baculum, or os penis, the bone many mammals use to erect their erections. They letter writers offered that the author(s) of Genesis were attempting to account for the bone’s absence in humans. Early intelligent design theory?

  15. joe: I will give you a Venezuela thread, in which you may say “I told you so!” with loud report. I will do this for you, if you bring me the foreskins of a hundred statists.

    For the record, the funniest thing I’ve encountered today.

  16. It’s all about David Wong, writer of both of those pieces. He’s been churning out quality fun time on pointlesswasteoftime.com since time immemorial.

    Is that a photo from John carpenters brilliant movie “The Live”?

    The man is dead…i think it is time the world recognizes him for the master film maker he was.

    I love that quote and Chavez is an asshole thug…and now he lost….are you saying that now an asshole thug has lost that its OK to like him again?

    Pretty weird joe.

  19. joshua corning: what the fuck are you talking about? john carpenter is alive and well.
