Small Island Trivia. . . .

Just in case you were wondering. . . . .

bluenose

A native of Nova Scotia: a colloquial designation.

A Nova Scotian vessel.

A puritanical person; a prude.

This word as a Nova Scotian nickname comes from an allusion either to the hue given to the noses of its inhabitants by its severe winter, or to a kind of potato so named which is largely produced there.
