I never heard of the word Limey before join BoxingScene Forum, what exactly is it? I think its the Brits but am not sure. Where did the word originate from?

A Limey sounds like it would taste good doesn't it? Like some radical candy from Harry Potter who is a Limey? LOL.

A nickname given to English people, since they were rumoured to eat limes (the fruit), to prevent scurvy whilst sailing, I believe.
