The team at cracked.com have a tested formula: take some good advice and practically bury it in humour to get a piece that has you laughing at first but thinking later. It is a very subversive way to get people thinking on a site you wouldn’t expect to be doing so.
I first started reading cracked.com for the laughs, but afterwards thought: hey, they have a really great piece of guidance there. Here are two pieces from many good ones on the site:
- 5 Ways to Spot a B.S. Political Story in Under 10 Seconds
- 5 Ways to Trick Your Body Into Being More Awesome
There are lots of sites on the Web giving advice (including this one). Cracked does it in a way that is better than most. Worth checking out.
