CRACKED magazine is DEAD!



I did this Paula Abdul for Cracked two months ago, I've been waiting and waiting for my check, finally I get an email from Cracked saying they're no longer doing the magazine . . .

From the Staff of Cracked . . .

"Cracked Magazine is gone as of Issue #3.

Unfortunately, distribution issues and the publishing industry as a whole made publishing a bi-monthly comedy magazine unviable. Will we revisit it in the future? Ya never know. But for now, no more Cracked magazine.

What does this mean for you? Any outstanding payment for Issue #3, which did see print, will be paid in full and should be mailed off to you shortly. Any work done for Issue #4 or #5, which will not be seeing print, will be paid a standard 20% kill fee, which is outlined in your contract. This, too, will be mailed off to you shortly. We apologize for the delay, and hope you can understand our difficulties under the circumstances."

So I only get 20% for my work on Paula . . . PEANUTS! Well, I won't be working for Cracked again, I'll just consider this a learning experience!

Maybe it is time for you to become one of the usual gang of idiots with MAD.
