Subject: What's a 'Salty Dog?'
From: WyoWoman
Date: 08 Nov 99 - 11:49 PM

Having listened again to Rick Fielding's new CD, which has a song about "Salty Dog" in it, which is different from the Mississippi John Hurt song I heard years ago about "Salty Dog," and, I think, the Taj Mahal version as well, I was wondering just what the heck that really refers to.

What/who's a salty dog? (besides, of course, a sort of odd mixed drink involving grapefruit juice and something alcoholic...)

As colourful and far more entertaining as the other suggestions are, I am afraid a Salty Dog, in all the contexts I have heard or read it in, is nothing more than a sailor(more often "Salty Sea Dog"). See RLS' Treasure Island. UNLESS as a youth I totally misconstrued Long John Silver's meaning when he said he was going below decks to slap a Salty Dog ..... which rather changes the flavour of the book.

Thank you to BSEED for the insight.

Well, I'm tending toward the more scatological interpretation because the lyrics I'm thinking of say, "If I can't be your Candy Man, let me be your Salty Dog," which doesn't seem to have a lot to do with seafaring.

Yet another phallic reference... Men have so many ways of saying the same thing. Women so few. Hmmmm.

That would be WyoW, not Kat, who said "scatological." Scatalogical refers to feces, poop, or doodie. I'm leaning toward "penilogical," myself.

Things seem to start out being about one thing, and frequently end up being about penises. Might it have once referred to a sailor, but been adopted as still another cute name for a wiener, schlong, trouser trout, lizard, ding-a-ling, heat-seeking-moisture-missle, etc?

sorry to have to say so, but twidgit is a very old word. My sea faring supervisor used it many years ago. If there was a woman he didnt like, he called her a "Jeezly twidgit" How about that old nursery rhyme Old Mother Twitchit" that word was also used as a synonym when I was a small boy.

I'm never going to the hot dog stall again!! Or maybe I should go more often....

And as for female versions, my daughter delicately calls hers her "parts", usually whilst flashing them to all and sundry as she is going through the no clothes stage. I know she'll grow out of it, I'd just prefer it to be before puberty..... She's been in it for 2 years now and she's only 3 and a half!!

'The custard packet' is something I've heard it called, or the 'glue pot'. A previous chain threw up an old boyfreind who called his 'dog' Cedric, and my corresponding items 'Jemima', I really do miss him!!

I'm fairly certain that this is not exactly what was meant in the song, but according to "The Dictionary of the American West" by Winfred Blevins, Salty Dog refers to "Anyone who's really good at his work....Also, according to other sources, a tough fellow (salty bacon or ham). Salty means 'full of spirit and fight.' When said of a hand, it's a compliment. But a horse that's salty may be mean."

Liz the Squeak, my seven year old still loves parading and dancing around the house with no clothes on, the only difference from four years ago is that he doesn't get undressed except for bath, bed and changing clothes. Oh and if there is a friend over he will modestly close the bedroom door when changing but not the bathroom door when its necessary. When he was a babe and toddler we called him Phip-phoo which made a couple laugh as they used the word phoo for the twidgett. Our daughter insists that her parts are her dinky.

Man, this old dog is learning a lot of new stuff on this thread. "Custard packet?" "Twidget?" I guess the terms we used in the Great War are things of the past now, like "wee wee" and "ding-a-ling." My personal preference for describing a female's "privates" is "love place." But then I'm so damn old fashioned.

Sophocleese, you may have been showing her the wrong page of the book when explaining..... We have a splendid book all ready for the day she asks where babies come from... and it isn't a Mothercare catalogue either! It's called 'Mummy laid an egg' and was banned from at least one library department I worked in because of the page 'These are some of the ways that mummies and daddies fit together....' I never found anyone to try the balloon one, but I am a girl of ample proportions... maybe the Good Year blimp, but never an ordinary balloon....

Perhaps the most distressing of her habits is to 'display' like a Sheil ne grig. Go look it up. Not nice.... Ah well, gets the air to it I suppose..

And thanks for the warning, so I have another 4 years of the nudity thing do I?

Sorry, this is getting remarkably like the unashamed gloating over kids page.

I think I would probably die laughing if someone referred to my bits as the 'love place', but then, they are so infrequently the topic of conversation, so I suppose I'm spared...

At any rate, I guess I figured "Salty Dog" was something long the lines of "Back Door Man..." But the post above talking about someone being really good at what he/she does could definitely apply. Meaning, the guy is saying he thinks he's really good at what he does and he wants the lady to give him a chance to prove it...

According to my big, huge, old dictionary, salty refers to someone of the sea.... who makes their way upon the waves of passion; plunging the depths of the ocean blue like a trident of Poseidon; cresting and spent, shoring up for the next crashing onslaught of passionate embrace of the deep, dark recesses of the murky moist deep; sometimes, gently drifting after a stormy row, until the next time they have to unfurl and prepare to embark on another eve of glorious abandon upon the bosoms of the high seas; listening for the lucky call for a "heave-ho!"; luckily never having to drop anchor.

Not bad for someone who doesn't know the difference between her tops'l and, ahem, keel!**BG**

A couple years ago we rented the movie "Grumpy Old Men". After the closing credits, they ran a bunch of out-takes of Burgess Meredith commenting about Chuck and the attractive widow's goings on across the street. In each out-take, he used progressively funnier and funnier euphemisms - my favorite was "taking the skin canoe to Tuna-town..."

Subject: Lyr Add: THE BALLAD OF JOHNNY AND GERTRUDE
From: Melbert
Date: 10 Nov 99 - 04:56 PM

Johnny was playing in the garden one day
playing at cards and dice
Into the garden came little Gertrude,
Carrying three white mice
"I've got some o'them" Johnny said.
Gert said "No you've not,
but I'll bet you anything you like
I've got everything you've got!"

So Johnny lifted up his little pullover
and laid his navel bare
As he stood upstanding he said
"I bet you've not got one of them, there!"
"Oh yes I have!" she lifted up her blouse
"Yes I have" said Ger,
"And the only diff'rence 'tween mine & yours,
mine isn't covered with dirt!"

So Johnny took off his little pair of trousers
and showed her what lay beneath.
When she saw that she hadn't got one
she was overcome with grief.
She dropped her mouse, ran into the house
calling for her mum, she said
"Johnny's got something under his pants
and mummy I haven't got one".

A few minutes later she came out of the house
she didn't make a sound.
Johnny was jumping and shouting for joy
and waving his thing around.
She said " alright John, I know you've one
but I don't really mind,
'cos mummy says as long as I've got one of these
I can get one of those ANYTIME!".

The Ballad of Johnny and Gertrude, from the singing of Roaring Jelly.

Here's one I forgot, popular around here: "the One-Eyed Trouser Moccasin" (Moccasin refers to a snake, eg. water moccasin, and not the shoe.)

We're a colorful people, we sing we dance, Chet

Stuffy warning--Barbara doesn't usually print *questionable* photos, except perhaps at the request of the photo-ee.

Who said there was anything questionable in the picture? Its all in the mind I tell you,The one you really want to see, which sadly no longer exists, is Liz the Squeak having grapes squashed between her toes towards the end of a very drunken dinner.

Ah yes, I remember that dinner, you were picking raisins off the dresser top for months afterwards, weren't you....

And if is that picture, I don't mind where it goes, I thought it was the one where I'm wearing a tiny apron and a big smirk...... Now that is DEFINATELY a no no piccy, for your safety if nothing else!!

The apron pic was taken at the Rocky Horror show birthday party they threw in my local Pub, everyone turned up in costume,'nuff said.Are you SURE I can't put it in the gallery or would it damage my health?

I don't know about it, but I certainly would!!! Remember the Christmas Pudding that took 30 mins to extinguish....?

And if you have never had grapes squeezed between your toes, try it, you might like it......! Training groups can be organised in London if you are interested.....

On an amusing side note, the Salty Dog Rag is the official dance of Dartmouth College... sort of fitting, given the Dartmouth students I hang out with...
