It Was Never This Exciting When I Was A Kid

I'll admit that I can't compete with you dorks when it comes to things like D&D, quoting Stargate, and not talking to girls, but the one area in which I always excelled was puerile, childish humor. I sought it out whenever and wherever I could, and as a result many of my fondest childhood memories involve coming home from school to find a brand new issue of Cracked waiting for me in the mailbox. That's right; I subscribed.

For those of you who don't know: Cracked was the lamer, less respectable (if that's possible) version of Mad magazine, whose mascot was a blatant ripoff of Alfred E. Neuman and whose main attraction was it's large-breasted "reporter" Nanny Dickering. It wasn't funny, it cost too much, and teachers at school would get mad if they caught you reading it, which of course was part of the fun.

At any rate, I eventually grew out of it, sort of, and the magazine went under. Until now, that is.

They're back in business, and they've become so adult-themed and filthy that this piece was shot down by the publisher for being too raw for the print version of the magazine (Warning: link NSFW). If you've ever imagined what would happen if Pooh, Piglet, and Eyeore found their way into Deadwood, then these are the guys you need to talk to.

The new and improved Cracked also features the writing of one Jay Pinkerton, a man whose dedication to photoshopping hilarious dialogue into old comic books (Again: NSFW) is so complete that it's downright heroic.
