  • Sealing, i.e. the practice of heading north to the ice in the springtime to kill seals:

    "Greenspond is a pretty place

    And so is Pinchard's Island

    Ma will buy me a new fur coat

    When Da gets home from swilin'."

    (Similar song verse quoted in Briton Cooper Busch, "The War Against the Seals: A History of the North American Seal Fishery")
