Back in 2001 we were on the QE2 from Capetown to Southampton.
King Neptune took over in the tropics as we neared the Equator, to “cure” Polliwogs.....I was one.
The pool deck was the location.
Pollywogs were lined up....
in turn we had to step forward.....
A large salmon was produced and, in turn, we had to kiss the fish before being dunked in the pool.
Definitely the ugliest thing I have kissed.
So, I am now cured of being a Pollywog.
Passengers were lucky....the crew Pollywogs were adorned with baked beans, sauces, goo before being cleansed .
The pool had a thorough clean up after it.
