Coal cracker

Posted by ESC on August 27, 2003

I am having trouble posting to "coal cracker." So I'm trying it as a new discussion. Here goes:

I'll look up "coal cracker" in my regional slang dictionaries this evening. I've never heard this phrase -- I'm a coal miner's daughter from West Virginia. I've done some online research and searched new and used bookstores trying to locate a miners' slang book. No luck yet.
