Are Animal Crackers Really Even "Crackers"?

When is the last time any of you had the apparently “trans fat-free” deliciousness of an animal cracker in your tummy? You know how long it’s been? TOO LONG. I was grocery shopping last night and found myself amongst the bulk food aisles. Usually there’s nothing in these bins that I really care for, except for the occasional sour soother and malted milk ball. But then I saw it. A zoo of delicious little flavorless cookies just waiting to be scooped up into the arc of my mouth. At $0.33 per 100 grams, you really can’t go wrong.
I decided to separate a few wild animals from the group and take them to work with me as a humorous snack. As I’ve been eating them though, I have come across a disturbing realization: I can only tell what one of the animals is! I keep picking up so-called animals from my baggie of delight and wondering what, if anything, this cracker is supposed to be? The one I have right now looks like a fat man bent over, ready to reenact a scene from Deliverance! Where are my giraffes, my elephants, my lions?! They have been replaced by what appears to be a one-eyed camel, a fat guy, and Jabba the Hut. Let me tell you, that would make for a much stranger visit to the community zoo if those characters were present!

    It has been too long!
    The one on the bottom looks like a hippo and the one on the top looks like an elephant with Alf’s head.

    … it kind of like clouds. What do you see?

    It looks kind of like a bear with an anvil for a head trying to make love to a duck!

    this is making me crave animal crackers. my mother still gives them to me (the kind in the little kid circus box) and it makes me so happy. i also love the frosted ones. why do adults abandon kid food. grilled cheeses, p&j, fruit rollups, jello. its all good. except perhaps those dreadful plastic gushers. what a strange thing to go in a lunchbox. along with my daily moonpie, how concerned my mother was for my health!

    The circus box animal crackers are the shit! They’re the real thing. When you get them in bulk you’re buying Chernobyl animal crackers.

    Well, uh, in the land of the Fat Man and Jabba the Hut, the One-Eyed camel is king.

    Or something

    That’s what happens when you buy discount animal crackers. You have to get the name brand ones if you want identifiable animals!
