Cracker Jacks

Awhile ago I was feeling a bit hungry, so I went to get a snack. I bought a nice bag of Cracker Jacks ("Prize Inside!"). As I carried them back to my desk, my distracted brain started running through the lyrics of an old commercial from my childhood,

"Cracker Jack! Cracker Jack! Cinnamon-tasty, that's but a fact. Apple-crunchy, something-too, Kellogs Cracker Jacks!"

I wasn't paying much attention to what was humming along inside my head. It wasn't until I got to my desk, sat down, and began to open the bag that I realized: "Wait a minute...that's the song for Apple Jacks, not Cracker Jacks!" Then I felt rather foolish.

I was half-way through the bag before I could remember an actual Cracker Jack commercial...then I felt a little better.

"When you're really good, they call you Cracker Jack!"

The prize wasn't very good though.
