GUEST,Phil d'Conch I give up. What's a HOGEYE? (141* d) RE: I give up. What's a HOGEYE? 24 Mar 21


The term came into usage as an equine conformation reference (see my previous.) We use "pig eye" today.

The first nautical usage we have so far comes generations later as a pulp fiction ahem... forebitter war cry(?).

Whall did not get one thing right about the well documented history of the Califonria gold rush. His sea-booted n*ggers and hog-eye barges are not exceptions to that rule. Hokum is the word you're looking for there.
