Odds Plut and Her Nails (Grose 1811 Dictionary)

Odds Plut and Her Nails

A Welch oath, frequently mentioned in a jocular manner by persons, it is hoped, ignorant of its meaning; which is, By God’s blood, and the nails with which he was nailed to the cross.

Definition taken from The 1811 Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue, originally by Francis Grose.
