GUEST,misophist BS: Cracker Jokes! (92* d) RE: BS: Cracker Jokes! 28 Dec 01

Let me complicate things a little. According to Mirriam-Webster, the word goes back to the 15th century and the first meaning they give is a braggart or a boastful person. Considering the kind of image the ordinary people of the old south tried to project, I suspect that might be the origin. BTW, if Texas counts, I are one, myself.
