On today’s episode of Cracked, Jack and Michael invite some fellow Cracked contributors to dissect their favorite real world origin stories. Topics discussed include everything from the QWERTY keyboard, Wikipedia and ketchup to planned parenthood, the concept of summer and the Holocaust.

I dunno if this is true but I heard that European explorers and colonists got a ton of STDs from the Native Americans, especially the Spaniards in Latin America where there was more contact sooner, before all the natives died from European plagues.

I would expected the other way, around frankly. A few episodes in, I was saying they they were touching on similar topics a little too much, but now I'd like to see them go further into some of this stuff.
