A new addition to the Big Book of Bunkum:

galleyglop (n.) euphemism meaning a burnt sea biscuit that’s none the worse for wear

“Give me galleyglop or give me death!” replied ‘Digby Dagger’, (a part-time pirate and rakish paramour of par-boiled roasted turnips, grilled watercress, and lightly-simmered acorns garnished with a dollop of dung-beetle jam on a slice of 100% multi-grain dry toast).
