French graffiti artists who spray-painted on the Cliffs of Moher have been named the number one set of "Tourists Who Managed to Be the Worst People in the World," according to humor website Cracked.com.

In a list on the website, Cracked went through their top five tourists who managed to be the worst that humanity could offer.

From a Chinese teenager who carved his name into hieroglyphics on a wall in an ancient Egyptian temple, to the unnamed Missouri tourist who made headlines last week for snapping off the finger of a 600-year old statue in Florence, Cracked counts down the people they deem the "worst people in the world."

For their number one spot, however, they reserved the space for the French graffiti artists who go by the names of "Mama" and "Dirty Edoir."

The Cliffs of Moher are one of Ireland's most famous natural beauties, "a testament to the fact that people may come and go, but the majesty of nature remains." Apparently unsatisfied by the everlasting natural beauty, the French hikers "felt that it would be greatly improved if it looked more like an inner-city garage door."

The duo defaced the world-famous cliffs earlier this year with "8 feet worth of graffiti crapola all over the rocks." Due to the porous composition of the sandstone rock that the Cliffs of Moher are made up of, the graffiti may remain for years or even decades to come.
