Cracker Jack stared in "The Beano" comic not long after it came out (no precise date). He no longer appears, except for in a special edition, where many of the long-dead characters came back.

Cracker Jack was special for using his whip. He could do everything with it, from using it as a weapon, to swinging, and even grabbing far away objects.
For more info, go somewhere else.

Noob is the derivident of newb which is the derivident of Newbie, meaning someone that is new to something.

Newbie has been commonly used both on Computers and RL (Real-life) for a long time, but has become less frequent both in RL and internet. More commonly used is Newb, which is coming back into fashion due to the exact reason of this topic. Meant to be pronounced New-Bee, it unfortunately got to be pronounced "noob", for all those dumb idiots and illiterate people.
Upon this point, noob began to be more commonly used. I believe this started out mainly on Runescape, and maybe WoW. Commonly used in the old fashioned way of newbie, it gradually became a minor insult, for when someone did something stupid, you called them a noob, meaning that they were obviously new.
Recently, noob has become a much more offensive word. This was evident on Runescape, as they blocked the word noob for a while, though this may have been due to their strict filtering system and the word "knob", but it is now useable again (I think). It has become a seemingly strong insult on the internet, and is beginning to take force on RL. There does not seem to be an exact meaning to this upcoming swear-word except "newbie", so there seems to reason to find it offensive. It's closest relations is most likely "idiot" and other such words, in a much more offensive format.
Large internet communities now have quite a problem with the word noob, since it is not swearing, but is taken offensively. This can be seen if you make a new character on a game such as Runescape, where undoubtedly, with-in the first 5-10 mins of playing you WILL be called a noob, most likely for nothing. Other games such as WoW and VCO have this problem, but no-where near as intensely.
1) "You are a noob because you are lvl 1"
2) "You are a noob because I think your a retard and you suck at everything cause I say so"

Noob should NOT be used in the case of number 1. Instead, Newb or newbie sohuld be used.
