Entry from August 01, 2023
“I had cheese, but no crackers. I was cracka-lackin’”

“Crackalackin’” is defined in a 2004 entry in the Urban Dictionary: “It’s an upbeat way of asking someone how they are doing, and may cause one to crack a smile in response.” In a popular joke, it means “cracker lacking.”
