Cracked is pissing on The Daily Mail about the content of its web site?

blatant plagiarism of said material, but yeah

To be fair, sometimes its hard to take a stock photo and make up a story to go with it.

Only the Daily Fail would be so pathetic that they'd have to steal content from Cracked.

Congratulations, Dacre, you've hit rock bottom.

Wait, Cracked and the Daily Mail in the same paragraph? Two sides of the same fail coin. Lose-lose regardless of which one lands face up.

I put Cracked as a leg up on some of the other crapfests out there.  I mean, at least they pay SOMETHING for their content instead of stealing it like The Daily Mail or refusing to pay their writers like HuffPo.
 
2013-08-14 04:17:43 PM
Cracked chastising the daily mail for their content is like the hoover dam saying you're really stopped up..

As usual for Cracked that was about three times too long, and what funny there was ran out about a fifth of the way through.

Cracked publishes article.

Daily Mail publishes remarkably similar article the next day. Eventually amends article to give credit to Cracked.

Cracked writes this article, sarcastically apologizing to Daily Mail for plagarizing its article via time travel, or passive-aggressively calls out Daily Mail for plagarizing it, whichever way you want to look at it.

Sometimes Cracked stuff is pretty good. This is not an example of that.

Why all this hate for Cracked? They're a low-brow comedy website, and have never pretended to be anything more.

You're right. You're much more likely to find real stuff on Cracked than the Daily Mail.

They secretly wish they were funny enough and/or had the balls to submit something to Cracked and have it accepted.

It's okay, guys, you're funny too. For reals.

NightOwl2255: Wow, that was poorly written. Even for Cracked.


I couldn't get past "Sequoia of Porno". Dumbass writer ignorant of etymology and whatnot... "porno" is a singular noun and usually prefaced with the article "a", as in "I casually undressed, donned my khaki London Fog trenchcoat and proceeded to the local cinema to view a porno." If one is referring to the genre, one uses "porn", an in "Sequoia of Porn". Or not, since that's a shiatty trope to begin with.

See, when you complain about things as being stupid or lame or worthless it automatically tells everyone your are smart or cool or worth something.   Especially if you do it in a single sentence post in the 4-7 word range.

I'm actually in the middle of writing up a pitch for a Cracked article, so I am really getting a kick out of some of these replies.

/Fun fact: If you think the stuff on the main page is bad, you should see some of the stuff on the submission page
//Also, Cracked editors don't accept the DM as a source, because it's so consistently full of shiat

Do high-brow comedy sites exist at all? If so are they funny?

Cracked articles often aren't bad (in the sense of totally misunderstanding what they are discussing) and I would rank them as a top comedy site, mainly because most comedy sites are awful (oooh, punch in the nuts) and Republican/Conservative sites are based on  promoting bigotry as humor.

2013-08-14 05:13:36 PM
The Daily Mail has form here. Stealing other people's stuff and posting it, without credit, is common for them. The really funny blog Things My Girlfriend And I Have Argued About once told how the Mail asked to print some of his stuff. He said no because he was thinking of publishing it in a book. So a week later the Mail just ran a double page full of his stuff word for word except they changed his and his girlfriends name.

For an example of how the Mail thinks its readers are morons this article, in their Finance section no less, explains inflation the way you'd explain it to a six year old.

For example, 25 years ago, you could have bought two Mars bars for 45p, but today you can buy one. This is inflation at work.
For example, imagine you had £10,000 in a savings account earning a rate of 1.5per cent. By the end of the year, the balance after interest was added would be £10,150. But if inflation is 3per cent, the cost of the things you spend your money on would have gone up far quicker than the interest you earned.
You'd need £10,300 to buy the same things that £10,000 bought you 12 months earlier.
As a result, despite the interest you earned, you'd be worse off. It's a sneaky - and complicated - trick. And because the actual pounds and pence in your account will not have gone down, it's easy to be lured into a false sense of security. But anyone who has noticed how everything seems to be getting more expensive is likely to have been a victim.


Well duh.

They also criticise the BBC virtually every day for some (usually false) slight, without ever telling their readers they are major shareholders in ITN, direct competitors to the BBC.

HairBolus: and Republican/Conservative sites are based on promoting bigotry as humor.


There's also the National Republican Congresional Committee's website, (an actual official part of the GOP) which constantly posts entrire pages of reaction GIFs with captions about Obama and thinks its funny.

Not surprisingly, FOX News viewers haven't caught on to how FOX seems to hate every other news outlet in existance for this same reason.
