"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Heat the oven to 350. Mix cracker crumbs and the melted butter and press into the bottom and sides of a 9 inch pie pan. Bake for 5 minutes.
