The phrase is based on real nautical slang and is a reference to the timbers, which are the wooden support frames of a sailing ship. In heavy seas, ships would be lifted up and pounded down so hard as to &quot;shiver&quot; the timbers, startling the sailors. Such an exclamation was meant to convey a feeling of fear and awe, similar to, &quot;Well Blow Me Down!&quot;, or, &quot;May God Strike Me Dead&quot;. Shiver is also reminiscent of the splintering of a ship's timbers in battle - splinter wounds were a common form of battle injury on wooden ships ('shiver' means splinter in some English dialects).

Somebody may have said this, but oh well. "shiver me timbers" is really just an exclamation of surprise. the "timbers" were the masts of the ship, and to "shiver" them would be to blow them into splinters, such as by cannon fire. That back **** is just gross, where the hell did you hear that?
