Relying largely on (ostensibly) humorous list articles, Cracked has become rather famous on the internet. Its lists, which can be written by anyone (hence these notes indicating inconsistency), are rooted in fact (usually) and coated in humour (mostly), dispensing interesting (often), historical (sometimes), and scientific (occasionally) trivia surrounded by jokes (always). It has about a half dozen full-time columnists on payroll, who dish out weekly and biweekly articles on serious subjects ranging from the cultural effects of the Internet, to ''ChooseYourOwnAdventure'' {{Gonzo|Journalism}}-style articles about visiting the zoo while on an amount of drugs capable of killing most men, to action reporting while getting kidnapped by pirates.
