Tragically, the Mole People were not on this list.

The 5 Most Ridiculous Lies Ever Published as Nonfiction. There’s some good stuff on there, but The Mole People: Life in the Tunnels Beneath New York City
is completely absent.  This is a pity, since it’s my wife’s favorite “sociology book that turned out to be utter nonsense.”  Look here (via here) for a comprehensive smackdown of the physical aspects of her book, which is actually pretty important in a situation like this.

I guess that’s to be expected, though.  Cracked’s in the humor business, and even with a title like “The Mole People” there’s only so much that you can do…

PS: No, nothing to do with this. Which is kind of a pity, when you think about it.
