Sailors and watermen have inspired or written many a bawdy song or a raucous joke- whether the product of too much grog, or just boredom, it’s pretty entertaining stuff. They have also inspired one of my favorite cartoonists, Kate Beaton, who riffs on historic and seafaring content in her work (she’s also a former Maritime Museum of British Columbia staffer!).

You can see more of her work here:
