When did Cracker Jacks start to suck?

This is probably the most important question you'll ponder today. Why has Cracker Jacks decided to only populate its classic American snack with stupid ass prizes. I want my damn temporary tattoo or reflective sticker. All you've given me lately is a weird factoid sheet about George Washington and a pencil topper. And by pencil topper, I mean a piece of paper with a hole at the top and the bottom.

You know the country is in bad shape when Cracker Jacks starts the downward slide. Of course, I just had my first box in about 10 years last week, so I could be a little slow on realizing the demise of the product... but seriously, it's shocking.

I'd listen if a candidate brought this up. Could make me change my vote.

I hate to tell you, but the prizes in Cracker Jacks have been sucky for a very long time. It's sad that there is a generation of kids who will never know the joys of little mazes with small metal balls buried in the bottom of their boxes of cracker jacks.

Oh wait...they don't make boxes any more do they? It's all bags now.

I think I read several months ago that Mitt Romney was fighting for improved CJ prizes. Now what?

Mitt Romney would have put hair products in CJ boxes. That would be a-ok with me.

As for CJ bags... that's just unAmerican. Mittens would have fought the commies threatening our most sacred institutions. Sheesh. :)

I haven't blogged about ol' Mitt in a while. I wonder what he's up to.

CJs blow ass, and not just the prizes...I think they taste worse than they used to ...fewer peanuts too, in case you missed that part... I remember when you could find a mood ring, or even an unlucky CJ factory worker's finger in a CJ box...good times...good times...
