Was the Smarty Jones is dead joke bad? Yes, but this is the one day serious media folk like myself can get away with this.
Anonymous tore me a new one and, I might add, deservedly so.
At first I thought he/she wrote his/her comment with a typo saying, "That is why you don't work for cracked."
I haven't worked for crack for a long, long time.
Then my fellow underpaid colleague said "Cracked" was like the "Onion."
I had never heard of "Cracked." Now I know.
And to Anonymous' credit, no, there is no way I could work for them. They are much, much funnier than I am.
