Thread Name: What the hell is a 'salty dog'?
Subject: RE: What the hell is a 'salty dog'?
I heard the term from an early age and I just always saw it as ALL OF THE ABOVE. Why not, good 'poetic terms' that carry lots of freight in a small space are hard to come by. 'Honey let me be your Salty Dog.'

Another addition: "Come back baby, Papa ain't salty no more"--T-Bone Walker("Papa Ain't Salty No More").
