Cracked has an open submissions policy.  dunno if their compensation plan is any good or not but I know some of you guys could be pretty successful with them.
You're a special case, Babylon.  You are offensive even when you don't post.

I've been signed up as a writer for ages now, I just haven't managed to find the time to write a decent article.  Though, they have their new "quick fix" section which I might take a stab at.

Wow, what a douche bag.  :lulz:
Although it is outside the purview of this organization to offer personal advice, we can say -- without assuming any liability -- that previous experience indicates (and recent market studies corroborate) that given the present condition of the marketplace, continuing with your present course of action is likely to result in substantial increases in corpse production.
