RE: Accent Tag! You're It.
I looked up the "word" crackerjack, and the only British reference I could find was a TV show in the 50s.

crackerjack either means something or someone who is good, or a crunchy caramel covered popcorn snack with peanuts in it.. and a prize.

If somebody called me a crackerjack I would probably take it as an insult. Tongue

It's not been a popular word in any place that I'm aware of since the 1940's.

I can't do a video because I don't have a webcam right now. I like the British accent though. Wink I can't wait to hear the scottish one.
