Pirate Word of the Day – Flatties

Lady Blade Blog

From the Dictionary of Nautical, University, Gypsy and Other Vulgar Tongues first published in 1859.

They could be a pair of Flatties. They could be a pair of Flatties.

Flatties: rustic, or uninitiated people.

(Not to be confused with Flats, who were a fools, or silly or “soft” people. I guess Flats live in town and Flatties live in the country?)
