    Crisscross applesauce wasn't invented until people went crazy with making everything pc. I'm 30 and never heard that crisscross thing until my friends had kids. Agreed. It's Indian style bitches.

    This rhyme and many others are taught in schools so students remember simple procedures. It has nothing to do with what you're all spouting.

    Actually crisscross-applesauce is the PC way to say Indian style. Anyone who works with children knows that.

      I had to Google it as I never heard it before either. Can't believe someone would be offended at the term Indian style.. it's a sitting position ..nothing in that suggests negativity towards Indians..do they or do they not sit that way ? Get over it people ..
