Today on the tray: Animal crackers
April 18 is National Animal Crackers Day. “Nothing tugs on your nostalgia like the innocent sweetness of animal crackers,” says CNN Eatocracy. “Perhaps they were your favorite snack at lunchtime in elementary school, or they still offer comfort to you at the end of a bad day.”
For National Animal Crackers Day, here is a strange performance of a strange song, “Animal Crackers,” by Melanie.
