That was quite a common epithet in the '50s. we had one on the Bulwark (1st commish). Port side broadside mess with 80 bunks, burma road in the centre between the lockers, then the Booties' barracks on the starb'd side.
One little section of six bunks had three of our limp wristed shipmates in it.
Very busy!

Gobblers Knob is where they hold a special Ground Hog Day celebration and Sid the pig predicts the weather.(13000 people came to witness it this year)

Getting back on topic.......

I'm amazed all you matelots haven't stayed in the small French village of PUSSY....

Somewhere for a future inland run ashore! :lol:

Here's a man holding a pussy....... :twisted:

 
Feck sake, blow job at sea best place either Stwds Mess or the Wardrom - never ever trust an unmarried Lt Cdr or above and never go to the Boat Show with them - oops think I might have put too much info on this thread.
 

KiloDelta

Midshipman
And a village in Germany called Fuc-king (negative "-"). Graeme Norton made a prank call to the tourist information office nearby for more info.

Edit: To avoid word censor.
