Default The Origin of Limey

This is kind of like "The Origin of Spiderman" cartoon i had on video when i was a kid, where u see Peter Parker get bit by that bastard radio active spider. It was the old old cartoon, probably made in the early 70's. With a wicked theme tune at the beginning that u could singalong to.

Anyway, enough of that spidey crap...

THE ORIGIN OF LIMEY...


Limes were used to prevent scurvy on some british ships.
The reason it is considered a slur is that originally lemons were used on long voyages to prevent scurvy, but some ship owners thought that this was too expensive and so substituted CHEAPER limes which basically worked though perhaps not as effectively.

So someone ' I think possibly of French origin', wishing to slight or disparage the British called them 'LIMEYS', as a mild insult implying that the British were more concerned with profit that the well-being and health of the seamen.

Thus essentially to call someone a 'Limey' is to insult them by implying they are a cheapskate or mostly concerned with profit (CASH).

I thought it was derived from "blimey". But what do I know about old British slang?
