: Orgin of phrase: I sure wouldn't throw her out just for eating crackers in bed.

I couldn't find the origin. I believe it's a country/Southern saying. The way I've heard it is: "I wouldn't kick her/him out of bed for eating crackers." Meaning the person is attractive so annoying habits don't matter. That isn't true, by the way.
