Star Trek TNG Rap (OR: The video that might bring peace to the multiverse) - VIDEO

Why do we live on a planet that makes us dress like this again?Cracked,I take back everything bad I ever said about you. Sure you began life as an also-ran copycat of Mad magazine and sure you dominate digg with a seemingly endless string of under-written pop-culture lists, but popularizing the following video makes it all better. Put it this way, I'm Kobe Bryant's wife and this video is a $4 million purple diamond ring.

Be warned before you click through, however, this video contains both obscene language and a shirtless Jean-Luc Picard in bed with Q. Also, if you play it more than two or three times, there's a chance the nerd secret police will repel line right into your office.

That said, this might be the best silly internet video to come out in a long while. I'm convinced it will usher in a new world order, much like the music of Wyld Stallyns. If you're prepared for that, follow me after the jump...

World's most insane game shows feature nudists, car theft and nipple clamps

Jump on a sqare and get your toes licked by a goat.For the most part American game shows are pretty tame. Oh sure, we eat a live slug once in awhile, and we take a dip into a pool of rattlesnakes on occasion; however, overall, the craziest thing we do is have our halter tops fall off while running down the stage. And, that's by accident.

The rest of the world, on the other hand...well, they've pretty much thrown off the Puritan shackles that we still bear and, for lack of a better phrase, let it all hang out when it comes to their game shows. Sometimes literally. Some examples of this can be found at Cracked.com, which lists 6 examples of the most insane game shows in the world.

More book ideas for OJ

by Adam Finley, posted Nov 18th 2006 7:01PM

oj simpsonHere you go, a bit of humor for your Saturday, or whatever day you happen to be reading this. The comedic minds over at Cracked have come up with some titles for books OJ Simpson might want to write as a follow up to his "hypothetical" book If I Did It, his account of how he would have committed the murders, had he actually done it. My favorite title: 'I Wish I Could Go Back In Time And Not Commit Murder.' That's What I'd Be Saying If I Did It.

There's never any event so tragic that someone, somewhere won't find humor in it, but I always find it interesting how some events seem to require more passing of time before people joke about them, while others are made the subject of humor right away. South Park touched on this with the "Jared has Aides" episode, announcing it was now okay to make fun of AIDS because it had been around for over twenty years. How long until jokes about 9/11 become the norm? It seems weird to think about, but tragedies like the Titanic and the Hindenburg have become punchlines in the modern age, so it seems naive to believe that future generations won't do the same with events from our era.

Best cable TV prank phone calls

by Adam Finley, posted Oct 19th 2006 2:29PM
manCracked has yet another collection of YouTube clips for your amusement, this time focusing on prank calls made to various news programs. A majority of these calls were made to C-SPAN, which is apparently the cable network of choice for bored pranksters looking for an excuse to say "penis" on television.

I don't know if these are necessarily the "best" prank calls, probably just the best that could be found on YouTube. None of them are especially clever, and the newsmen don't seem especially rattled by the callers. Call me a prank snob, but I prefer my phone gags to have a little more panache. However, the call handled by Ted Koppel is somewhat intriguing, as Koppel refuses to play ball with a man trying to promote his Web site. The man calling to C-SPAN to talk about a war against robots from Battlestar Galactica is mildly amusing, but I give him points for being the most original out of the bunch.

Drug-fueled fun from Cracked

by Adam Finley, posted Aug 19th 2006 3:01PM

crispin gloverCracked, a magazine I read quite a bit in my youth, has had a presence on the Web for a while now, and recently relaunched a completely re-imagined print edition. Damn, there was a lot of "re" in that sentence. Anyway, they have a funny article you can check out here of the top five appearances of people who appeared on television and were probably on drugs. I think my favorite is Crispin Glover on Letterman. I really couldn't make out whether he was just playing around or if he was actually mentally disturbed. But then, I've never quite been able to pin that man down. Good actor, though. The Cracked writers also believe the entire audience of America's Funniest Home Videos is on a cocktail of laughing gas and cocaine. Out of all the people on the list, that seems like the most verifiable.

Dark Crystal the animated series

by Adam Finley, posted Feb 6th 2006 1:18PM
dark crystalThere's been a lot of talk lately about the upcoming sequel to The Dark Crystal, which will be directed by animation wunderkind Genndy Tartakovsky and combine both puppets and CG backgrounds. What I didn't catch until recently is that there may also be an animated Dark Crystal series which will air as part of Cartoon Network's Toonami block. David Slack, who also worked on Teen Titans, will work on this series. I haven't seen much on this, save for little tidbits here and there, so I guess we'll have to wait and see. The series will apparently work as a kind of prequel to the original film, focusing on life before the Crystal cracked and the Gelfling race was (nearly) wiped out.
