OK, let's figure out this "hunky-dory" problem: 1). Hunk is slang for an attractive male. I'm bypassing the traditional definition for "hunk" because of course the actual word we need to define is "hunky". This has a slang-y feel to it. 2). Dory is the word for a small open fishing boat in the Maritime region of Eastern North America. It's a traditional, hand made wooden boat. 3). Now all we have to do is combine these definitions. So apparently a "hunky-dory" is an attractive, male, er, fishing boat. No, really. Another triumph of logic!
