Is that racist?

Actors? Not Sticking to their race? Superheroes not acting as themselves in movies? What sorcery is this?

I read that one, or looked at it, I'm really not sure what the proper word for being tortured by a photoplasty is. Anyways, at least 50% of the casting choices could have been considered non-bizarre. A full 40% were just lame and the final belong to this song.

The things that confused me most about this one were (in # 11), the actor who plays Cam on Modern Family is actually straight (but plays a more effeminate gay man), while the actor that plays his (more masculine) husband is actually gay. Also, were there really only nine submissions that they thought were good enough to list? (AuntieMeme did six entries. Yes, I counted.)

(Presumably, the only way to stop a bad guy with a transgender-friendly privacy law is a good guy with a transgender-friendly privacy law, and thus transgender-friendly privacy law rights need to be enshrined in the Constitution as well)

The age one confused me. Someone five years younger than Johnny Depp played his mum. Well yes, because the man's clearly made some kind of demonic pact in return for eternal youth (or has had a lot of extremely good plastic surgery). It doesn't matter how old an actor is, it matters how old they look.

Thatindianguy made a thread about this one already. Just pointing that out. I dunno if it can get merged or something.

JamishT was a heck of a guy,
With a devilish twinkle in his eye.
With his hand-picked flowers,
And his feel-good powers,
He made all the girls blush and sigh.

So, why the fuck is AuntieMeme still in these? As people love pointing out in the comments, AuntieMeme is Cracked staff now, and if I remember correctly, Cracked staff aren't allowed to enter these.

AuntieMeme doesn't really enter the contests since you don't see her submissions in the forum. When there is a weak contest (either one that people don't enter or a contest with an unclear prompt that causes people to go off-prompt) Cracked editorial will lean on AuntieMeme to fill out the entries.

There is also an entry from Kalli who is the plasty forum moderator.

The world of freelance writing is a weird and wonderful one, is it not? One of my clients is currently embroiled in a labyrinthine defamation lawsuit than in part hinges on the difference between employees and contractors.
