Good job, by the way are the picture captions yours as well?  I have always wondered when I read Cracked articles.   (if they will kill you for answering sorry)

The pictures used for most of the captions were images that I found. However, the words underneath them are not mine. The editors did a fantastic job with that as well as improving  upon what my version of the article was accepted and drastically improved the jokes, the introduction and explaining the LOTR secret language a much clearer way than I ever could.

I read and enjoyed that article this morning - even before I knew a fellow badmovies.orger wrote it.

Great job! Keep spotting those Bunnies!

Thanks everyone.

Buzzfeed had my article #1 on the list of things that are hot on the web two days ago. I really didn't expect that to happen.

Way cool, congrats! I love Cracked.com.

...shoot, I'm so old that I remember when Cracked was a "Mazagine."

Heh, me too.  It was generally regarded as the redheaded stepchild to MAD, as I recall.  I've burned up many an hour on that site, mostly for Seanbaby.   :teddyr:

Thanks everyone.

Much to my surprise over night about 50,000 more views putting it about 44,000 views short of 1 million, which is something I was really hoping for because it's a huge milestone.

Fantastic!

I'm actually old enough to remember buying Cracked magazine. It was always the second-tier to Mad, but oddly had some of the greatest comic makers working for it. John Severin is one of the greatest artist ever, and then they had Daniel Clowes (who hated working there).

It's new incarnation is basically internet crack, lists. Your list was fun and informative. Keep writing.

I was 50/50 Cracked vs Mad as a kid.  I actually enjoy Cracked.com, its brain candy.

So the article is officially over 1 million views. I'm amazed that it surpassed that benchmark number. A big thanks to all who read it.

Another item I participated in was published on Cracked. I co-wrote this with two other people.

I think all six are all really cool because it's fans taking their fandom to the next level.

I wrote Groundhog Day and The Stephen King entries.

Trust me Bob, Bronies are one of the worst fans of all time, up there with Metal snobs and the Star Wars Star Trek fans.

I know some people who are bronies. It's not my thing, but I dont have a problem with them.

Also the person who created the Stephen King flowchart updated it to include the Dark Tower Series.

This is incredibly awesome!
