** The final episode of ''Obsessive Pop Culture Disorder'' ends with its usual CouchGag of a humorous fake preview of the content of the next episode, in this case, an episode about the show getting a sponsorship and how that would be a great idea for any large corporation. Turns out that would've been incredibly useful since in a few days Daniel would be unceremoniously laid off, along with almost all of the creators of video content.

** From the description of [[http://www.cracked.com/quick-fixes/4-awesome-marvel-movie-scenes-youll-never-see-and-why/ 4 Awesome Marvel Movie Scenes You'll Never See (And Why)]]: "Sadly, a Spider-Man/Avengers team-up is just one of many things we can pretty much guarantee that you will never, ever see in a Marvel movie ... at least not in your own lifetime." Cue the announcement less than a year later, that Spider-Man was indeed going to join the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse. From the same article, it also says that other Avengers wouldn't appear in the individual movies of one Avenger, and that we'll never get a Deadpool movie. We would eventually get ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar'', a Captain America movie with not one but ''two'' teams of Avengers, and ''Film/SpiderManHomecoming'' and ''Film/ThorRagnarok'' featuring Iron Man and the Hulk respectively having large roles alongside the titular heroes, and [[Film/Deadpool2016 the Deadpool movie]] did indeed happen, and became a massive success (bigger than any of the ''X-Men'' films).

Finally, as if to prove that fate has a funny sense of humor, the X-Men will finally be joining the MCU after Disney's $52 billion acquisition of Fox. This means that virtually everything in that article was proven ''dead wrong''.

** On July 24, 2017, ''WebVideo/AfterHours'' introduces a new crew, but make it ''incredibly'' clear that the original crew will be around and doing just as many videos. Many jokes were made about how the crew will still be coming to the diner, forever, continuing their discussions. Except in two months, Soren Bowie announced that he's leaving Cracked, and in December, the rest of the original crew was laid off without any warning.

** DependingOnTheWriter really, given that the site has so many writers, but usual subjects include teenagers, {{hipster}}s, [[CanadaEh Canadians]], the song "[[WeDidntStartTheBillyJoelParodies We Didn't Start the Fire]]" (Music/BillyJoel himself rarely is a target, however), or Music/PhilCollins. It's pretty widely accepted that most of these are just running gags, and not really meant to offend anyone (except maybe hipsters).

** In the 2012 article of the "[[http://www.cracked.com/article_19979_5-old-childrens-cartoons-way-darker-than-most-horror-movies_p2.html 5 Old Children's Cartoons Way Darker Than Horror Movies]]", ''WesternAnimation/SwingYouSinners'' was #1 on the list for this reason: "Officially, LSD was first produced in 1938. We say "officially" because this cartoon says it's from 1930, [[WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOndrugs and there's no way it was created without massive doses of acid being pumped into everyone involved]]." Five years after this article, we have ''VideoGame/{{Cuphead}}'', which is heavily modeled on ''Swing, You Sinners!'' and the other works of Creator/MaxAndDaveFleischer in UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation while combining them with the ''VideoGame/{{Contra}}'' and ''VideoGame/{{Parodius}}'' franchises (the CreditsGag even said that the game was set in 1930, which was the exact year that ''Swing, You Sinners!'' came out in TheGreatDepression!).

** The site using subscriptions in mid 2017 for exclusive features turned off many people. Later on, even the simple ability to upvote and downvote comments were locked behind the subscription paywall, which pissed off a lot of people.

** A lot of hate is directed at "Title Guy" or "the Title Editor", due to the horribly mismatching titles he/she uses for Photoplasties, and a gradual tendency towards click-baiting.

** A lot of hate is directed at "Title Guy" or "the Title Editor", due to the horribly mismatching titles he/she uses for Photoplasties, and a gradual tendency towards click-baiting. In the plasties especially this has a tendency to render all of the entries complete nonsense since they rely on knowing the original prompt.
