Baron von Cracka's Story
Baron von Cracka was first carved in wood, and where he was finished he faithfully stood, never speaking a word or in need of food, Baron remained ever smiling and in a cheery mood. At first sight all in the courts were not amused, for his likeness to some was not far removed. Beautifully crafted he was oft mistaken for a man, but in hindsight you knew he was of the nutcracker clan. His teeth could crack any filbert, cashew or pecan, but this was never tested or proved, for they never were used. When asked to speak or crack nuts Baron simply refused. The royals, prelates and judges all greatly approved, deeming he was perfect and could not be improved. Now we have fashioned Baron von Cracka in glass, and with love and care for generations he will last. This loyal Cracka shalt not be wooed, Baron’s devotion cannot be unglued. Forever on duty he will not be moved, guarding all boys and girls who are good!
