Splice The Mainbrace

oil on 1 1/2" deep stretched canvas

I first heard this term on International Talk Like A Pirate Day (September 19th).  Originally it was an order for one of the most difficult and dangerous repair jobs aboard a ship.  The crew members who followed through would be awarded an extra ration of rum or grog afterwards.  The term eventually morphed to mean a celebratory drink on special occasions.
