A nice easy riddle to start the day with.

I'm a slap from a tasty fish!
I make a wholesome sausage sandwich.
You'll find me in a ship, 
washing a pig to the tune of a flower and a rooster!

What am I?

    $\begingroup$ Also I assume that "brillig" hints at the Jabberwocky poem. $\endgroup$ – Martin Ender Jun 2 '16 at 10:04

  • $\begingroup$ Even after reading accepted answer, I still have no idea what this is about. Maybe care to explain more or the context? $\endgroup$ – Zikato Jun 2 '16 at 13:55
  • $\begingroup$ These are slightly older English terms for saying something was nonsense, i.e "That was pure poppycock" as in "That was rubbish", or "Hogswash!" as in "Nonsense!" $\endgroup$ – Olly Jun 2 '16 at 16:00
