You would not believe the entertainment I get from the members of imutual and these forums.
Thanks all - so many of you crack me up.

No. no - I might be a truculent taig, but I could never be called a whingeing pom :mrgreen:

...and since any opportunity is enough:
How can you tell when a British Airways plane has landed at Sydney Airport?

..... because the whining continues after the engines have been switched off!
Just because I'm paranoid, it doesn't mean they're not out to get me

I am basing it on many of your posts. Not saying you are an old fogie as not idea what age you are. Not a teenager but what age I neither know nor care

My Aussie (half brother) called us Poms. I retorted that really it should be the Aussies who should be called Poms as it stands for "Prisoners of his/her Majesty". He laughed but never called us Poms again

Urban myth, I'm afraid.

Most likely root of the term "pommy" or "pom" is that it is linked to "pomegranate", as rhyming slang for "immigrant". Possibly also a link to our use of the fruit to prevent scurvy on the long journey. In many ways it is similar to the Americans calling us "limeys".

There's no evidence to support the "prisoners" root, or sometimes "Product of Mother England". The term is believed to have originated in the late 19th century, much later than the convict shipments.
