AHOY!

My coworker told me the origin of the phrase “Shake A Leg”. Now, I’m going to tell YOU. So in the Navy, men could “sneak” women or their wives on board for cheap tawdry sex (the best kind). This was encouraged so that officers wouldn’t feel compelled to desert in an exotic port.

When the time came for the ship to set sail, the ladies would “show” or “shake” a leg from under the covers in the bunk. This would grant them time to dress and abandon ship, so to speak.

This post was brought to you by the letter “J” – for John. Thanks John for your completely useless trivia.
