One more thing before bed. I was regaling Rook with some disgusting details of how you skin and flense a young fur seal and prepare its skin for shipping. (And by the way - a male fur seal is a wig, and the female is a clapmatch.) And I came to the sentence, "The flippers, when well dressed and roasted, are not inferior to the callipee of the best green turtle."
"I think it's a kind of Jamaican turtle soup, like shark fin soup. Officers on board eat it. And calipash goes with it. Maybe calipash is like, turtle hash."
Imagine the mockery of my made up facts! I am still convinced that there is some association with special Jamaican recipes.
Remember: CaliPEE is on the underside and is yellow. CalaPASH is under the hard upper shell or carapace and it's green. (Calapazo in spanish). Pay attention! You might need to know this someday.
