Definition of Terms

I thought I would expound a bit on Snuffy's post by citing Merriam Webster:

Crack-er, noun.

1.  General:  a dry, thin, crispy bread product that may be leavened or unleavened.  ("I think I'll stop by Piggly Wiggly on the way home and buy a box of crackers.")

2.  Southeastern U.S.:  a poor, white person from the rural American South.  ("I saw more crackers at the Georgia-Florida game than at the Daytona 500 this year.")

3.  Savannah, GA:  anyone who is not Catholic.  ("I can't believe Tommy is marrying that cracker girl from Country Day").

"anyone who is not Catholic"-

So Otis Johnson is a cracker?

If you are a lapsed Catholic, it is possible for you to be labeled as a "cracker"

No, Otis is something else.
