A What?

I was reading a book and ran into this passage: "The guards, pouting with boredom, hands lost in pockets, twitchy, surfeited on nipple-sheets, have been thoroughly schooled in circumlocution."- Iain Sinclair, Downriver (Or The Vessels of Wrath) A Narrative in Twelve Tales (1993)

So, TQC, anyone know wtf a nipple-sheet is? (I did try googling it, with no luck.)

Feel free to leave silly definitions if you don't know, just label them as such.


DK/DC- What was the last weird term you ran into?
