Thread Name: Help: Meaning of 'Chicken on a Raft'
Subject: RE: Help: Meaning of 'Chicken on a Raft'
And a chicken on a raft on a Monday morning is a terrible sight to see because, whether poached or fried, it is _not_ what your hangover wants to see--as you start a new week in your tin can abode.

Another Royal Navy delicacy that might not be fit for sore eyes and weak stomachs is stewed tomatoes on toast--known as a "train wreck".

Info gleaned long ago from Lou Killen, an authority on Tawney.
