My daughters are addicted to this video, "Octonauts". One of the characters often says "Shiver me whiskers!". My elder daughter asked me the meaning of this word, but I didn't know. (actually, I didn't hear and watch the video with my daughters) I googled the meaning, and I found it's a very famous "Pirates" word. Originally, it was "Shiver me timbers!" and it also appeared in "Treasure Island", and spread all over the pirates book. Surprisingly, it was also used in "Pirates of the Caribbean"!! The most impressive case was, when we read the book that day, the main character boy said "Shiver me timbers!" as pretending be a pirate!!! My elder daughter was super excited to read and know the words🥰
