The 7 Hardest People To Buy Holiday Gifts For

With the end of the Thanksgiving weekend, we enter that long, grim death march known as the holiday season. It’s a time marked by cold weather, wet feet and societal pressure to buy thoughtful gifts for your family or, depending on your circumstances, the group of circus oddities who have become like a family to you.

We here at Cracked want to help, or more accurately, to pretend to help while we make cheap jokes at your expense. To do this, we’ve enlisted the aid of thousands of spies to track our readership and identify the most problematic people they’ll have to shop for this holiday season. Then, using the personal shopping abilities granted to us by a powerful alien ring, we compiled the following Gift Guide. Read more…

I love a good survival story. This exceptional pig, hailing from China, was born without his hind legs. Instead of curling up in his trough and waiting to become bacon, he adapted to his disability, learning to walk on his front legs by catapulting his 60+ lb. body into a handstand. Those who know him call him “strong pig.” Maybe next he’ll learn to fly. [Huffington Post]

Attention wonder women, the reality world is a-castin’! An agency in L.A. is seeking females in traditionally male-dominated professions that are “terrifying” or “disgusting,” like mining, installing power lines, and working in slaughterhouses, for a show called “Wonder Women.” This actually sounds like a kind of feminist show … but keep in mind  its being cast by the same gang that brought you “Jersey Shore.” (Eek.) But hey, if you “prove on a daily basis that there’s no such thing as a ‘man’s job,’” and “look good swinging that sledgehammer,” maybe it’s the show for you. Fancy yourself the next Snooki of the dirty jobs realm? Visit WonderWomanCasting.com. [DoronofirCasting]

Approval Matrix: The 2012 Grammy Award Nominations

Ugh, the Grammys: so, so, so boring and mainstream in their nominations with the occasional WTF?! thrown in for good measure. The 2012 nominees, announced last night, are no exception. Adele was deservedly nominated for all the major awards and will likely take them all home. Meanwhile, Beyonce’s 4, which was arguably one of her best albums ever, was snubbed, as was Nicki Minaj’s “Super Bass.” Jay-Z and Kanye West got some love for their Watch the Throne collab, while Lady Gaga’s third consecutive Album of the Year nod has her tied for the record with The Beatles. And then there was something about a band called Skrillex making me feel old. Those are the noms in a nutshell, with more of my thoughts displayed in the Approval Matrix at left. Here‘s a list of more nominees.
