… is one of those things people say when stuff goes wrong in a weird way. I couldn’t tell you when or where I first saw or heard this saying, but I know that I say it from time-to-time.
When I started researching this phrase’s derivation, I discovered that some sources say that “crap on a cracker” is a polite way of re-stating what my FIL, a Korean War vet, would describe as: “sh!t on a shingle.”
I dunno if that’s true, but it makes for a good story.
What I do know to be true about this phrase is that it’s been made popular by Kaley Cuoco’s character Penny on The Big Bang Theory.
And that’s all I can tell you, my gentle readers, about holy crap on a cracker! 😉
