    So when they are baking they don't turn into pastry pillows! The steam inside them while baking would cause the top layer to poof up! Sorry, I couldn't think up anything funny for your question so I just gave what I learned from my granny who actually baked graham crackers!

    The truth = to give space for it to rise.

    The joke = Because the crackers were all cracked up (laughing) till holes appear in the tummy.

    B/c some crack-head invented them. It immensely confused everyone. Thus the new food was named "cracker" .

    Haha. make them easier to be cracked! Haha. Lik those dotted lines they make in cards and papers for easy tearing! Muahaha.

    But its true, the one about the raising of the flour etc. :)

    to save money. thats less cracker that we' are getting. damn conspiracys.

    no like.

    if u put sometthing on it. the ridges make it less likely to slip off.

    or if u dip it. the (whatever u dipped it in) will stay on better

  • The holes are there to let extra air out so they don't puff out.

    or maybe they are trying to save on the flour.. lol
