NAUTICAL SAYINGS HUNKY DORI

ImageTRIVA – HUNKY DORY
No the phrase for describing something as more than satisfactory does not derive from a large masculine looking female. All though if that’s what floats your boat it could probably have a connection. Hunky Dory is actually a mispronunciation of a street frequented by sailors visiting the port in Yokohama, Japan. Honki-Dori was a virtual cornucopia of ‘forbidden’ pleasures of the mind and body. I bet they didn’t feel particularly hunky dory the next morning.
