(Cracked)   So when exactly did Cracked go from being "lists of amusing video game bugs and/or interesting historical facts" to "Sanctimonious old middle class white dudes whine endlessly about how teenagers are lazy and immature"?   ( cracked.com) divider line
    More: Sad, righteousness, losing games, bugs

I think it's sad so many of you know individual writers on Cracked

probably happened around the time their interns got to be too lazy and immature to agree to write their content for free.

I don't really remember a time when the word "amusing" ever applied to Cracked lists.

If it weren't for Fark, I would never have learned that career development and saving for retirement are uncool "old people" stuff.

Wonder how much of the butthurt here is from people for whom this hits a little too close to home.

Also, yeah he writes for Cracked. He gets paid for that. You're trying to be witty and funny on Fark for free. Get over yourself.

GarbageDay: Has to be John Cheese



The guy acts like he's the one-stop encyclopedia for all of life's valuable information. You write on a comedy website for Christ's sake.

Most former addicts are like that. They're so shocked that they cleaned up their act that they figure they're enlightened, sort of like born-again Christians. Of course, the clarity that comes from no longer drowning in booze or drugs might make every insignificant detail of life seem profound. I dunno, I've never stopped boozin'.

anyone who isn't lazy and immature is an idiot.

All these people condemning Cracked, get a life.

First of all, their articles are like Howard Stern. It masquerades as low-brow, when in fact it's very well-researched and well-done. There's a lot that goes into those articles. They also make me laugh on a regular basis, for free.

Also, the writers are making more money than I'd bet everyone in this thread, so enough with the "durr working for cracked must suck".

The same time Fark went from witty headlines and reasonable discussions to unfunny half jokes and slanderous headlines and troll fights in the comment sections?

/Oh and WND links.

DeltaPunch: If the author has learned from his excuses and grew to be a better person, then he shouldn't whine and try to stop others from making such excuses. Life is a learning process.

However, if he's warning us about making such excuses because look how crappy his life turned out ("I'm writing for Cracked, for God's sake!"), then why would any of us waste our time reading such a wordy article written by a total loser?

Cheese looks at being a Cracked writer as a major highlight in his life.

Cracked writers are growing old and realizing they are still writers for Cracked, that's why.
