This sweet shirt celebrates the hilarious humor magazine Cracked that was first launched all the way back in 1958. The shirt shows off a cartoon graphic of some of the magazine's most memorable characters including Nancy Dickering, The Talking Blob, and Sylvester P. Smythe. Cracked was a satirical publication that was famous for copying the layout and style of another beloved humor magazine, Mad. Comparisons were even drawn between the two publications' mascots Sylvester P. and Alfred E. Neuman. 

Cracked's first editor was Sol Brodsky, who would later go on to become a production manager and publishing vice president for Marvel Comics, and the publication featured the work of a number of talented cartoonists over the years including John Severin, Bill Ward, Howard Nostrand, Don Orehek, and Charles Rodrigues.

Cracked managed to generate decent sales, although it never reached the same popularity as its predecessor Mad. After its popularity began to wane in the early 2000s, the Cracked named was adopted into a humor website called Cracked.com, which continued the satirical tone of the original magazine.
