2. 7 SNL Characters That Need to Retire 

If one thing is for sure, the staff at Ranker loves SNL… but sometimes it’s time enough is enough. Certain characters on SNL never quite make it mainstream and it gets really old really fast when the producers at NBC don’t catch on. We agree with TheInsider.com for the most part here because they provided video great video proof as to why each of these 7 characters need to never make another come back. Let us know what you think of their list. Who would round out the Top 10?

 

3. The 13 Insane Mexican Food Crimes

As bizarre as the headline sounds this was one of the more popular lists on Ranker this week. Included at #2 is the man who made tamales out of the corpse of his friend after they got into an argument after drinking!!! Nuts right… Guessing that’s why you shouldn’t eat the worm out of the tequila bottle. Or like  killer who tapes burritos to all of his victims. Sounds like the plot to season 10 of Dexter.

5. The 20 Best Fake Criterions for Really Sh*tty Movies

6. 7 Nuclear Weapon Screw Ups You Won’t Believe We Survived

We’ve come closer to an all out nuclear winter more often than anyone would care to admit. To be honest, we were skeptics first, but once we read into the details provided by Craked, we where shocked to learn otherwise. There was the Tsar Bomba during the Cold War and that one time Bill Clinton nearly lost his marbles and misplaced the “keys to the end of the world.” SMH.
