A 2006 MvC! Reader


If you managed to skip the entire last year of Man vs. Clown, then, well, you obviously didn’t work in the human resources department of my former employer. 2006 was the year that this blog moved under the aegis of Cracked.com and was rewarded with a healthy boom in traffic, and thus, it may be the year that some of you read it for the first time. (No doubt it was also the year some read it for the first and last time.) If you feel you may have come late to the party — a term I use loosely, of course, as I plan to spend tonight drinking scotch and falling asleep early on my mother’s couch — or if you simply (and understandably) ignored this blog for long stretches of time and now find yourself with nothing else to read now that nobody’s posting anything over the holidays, here is a selection of posts, hastily chosen and varying wildly in quality, to help you catch up.

And lastly, here is a collected (but likely incomplete) list of things I shouldn’t have said this year, and probably shouldn’t be repeating:
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17
