Thread Name: Donkey Riding - What's Hong-ki-kong?
Subject: RE: Donkey Riding - What's Hong-ki-kong?
Slight thread creep here, but I've always wondered about the ship name of the bold sea captain in Lady from Carlisle "....cap'n of the ship called Hong Kong Ki." Makes me wonder, now, if the ship was named for a sampan girl...(or was it just the only thing anybody could think of to rhyme with "raised his voice both loud and high"....)
