3. Crispy comes from the song

"Good King Wenceslas."

Good King Wenceslas looked out
On the Feast of Stephen,
When the snow lay round about
Deep and crisp and crispy.

(I have no idea where that actually came from, but I think I remember hearing it on some casual silly thing the Beatles did back in the dark ages. In any case, that's the only way I ever think of that lyric now.)
