Top 10 (or whatever) Lists

5 reasons it’s okay for HungryDads.com to steal from Cracked.com

#5 – We are only stealing style of writing lists and catchy headlines.

We still write our own stuff.  There’s not much content for us to steal anyway.  Cracked just don’t cover food very much. Good thing we are here.

#4 – Cracked.com does “clickbait” right.

Cracked.com respects their internet articles and titles as much as their audience. And they know what it looks like when clickbait sucks. Check Out their awesome article where they breakdown “clickbait”:  4 Good Ideas That Got Ruined By Idiots.

#3 – Stealing is the sincerest form of flattery (we are fans).

This whole list is just to pretend that we can be in the same conversation as Cracked.com. Sure we both have podcasts and websites and youtube videos. But we’ll admit that Cracked.com is a little more popular, quite a bit smarter, and a LOT more funny than we are.

#2 – We’re not the only ones who do it.

At least we create our own content, like Cracked does.  Not all websites are so legit.  We won’t name those jerks websites who get a lot of buzz, trying to feed its readers stuff right from Reddit.

#1 – Cracked’s very origin is appropriation

Remember Cracked.com’s predecessor, Cracked Magazine? It was such a ripoff of Mad Magazine, it even had a dopey mascot with a middle initial, Sylsvester P. Smyth was Cracked’s answer to Mad’s Alfred E. Newman.   Parodying a parody magazine may sound meta, but it was sorta just copying. That said, it was just as good (an even superior at times!)
