1. Yes, it was me... that damn Claudia Cardinale

was eating crackers in bed, and I had new sheets

well, I let her stay.

and the saying was born.

2. Eating crackers in bed causes crumbs in the sheets.
Crumbs in the sheets are very uncomfortable - a real irritant.

A person's got to be pretty special if you wouldn't kick him out for eating crackers!

4. Uncomfortable?
There is probably a fetishist subculture that loves the feeling of cracker crumbs all over their naked bodies.

7. Probably, but I would suggest they are the minority.

Edited to add that this is funny, because I am eating a few Ritz right now.

8. The other day someone on here credited it to the "Cliff" character from "Cheers"
It may have been around long before that show, though, for all I know...

12. Older than Cliff and Cheers.
I remember it from my teenage years though I don't know where it originated.

13. That one is really old...
I remember that one from the 60's. It was usually said when people were talking about how "hot" somebody was. In other words, "Well, I wouldn't throw her out of bed". Yeah, it was disgusting.
