Cream Crackered

sound symbolism rhyming; adjective; slang
To be extremely tired or exhausted.
 
This word is predominately used in Britain. It is considered rhyming slang, which is very common in the cockney dialect from which this word originated. A cream cracker is a savory biscuit which is often eaten with cheese in Britain. But there does not appear to be a connection between the phrase cream crackered and the actual cracker.
Etymology : It is thought to have evolved from the word "knackered" which also means to be tired or exhausted and rhymes with knackered.
