    Doesn't it come from British sailors earing limes because the citrus or I guess the PH value helped to fend off survey?

    Edit it was the vitimin c.

      not really, at least ive never heard someone say it in rl. Ive been called pom and pommy dozens of times though by kiwis and Ozzies who seem to think its highly offensive and seem shocked that i laugh at it and dgaf, i swear they dont even know what it means
      everyone has a different definition, ' prisoner of her....majesty' ?

            the term is not used to describe skin color being like white limestone. common misconception.

            the term is used to refer to the lime flavored grog british sailors used to drink. grog is a diluted form of alcohol. it's used to keep drinking water from developing bacteria and algae on long sailing voyages.


            you learn something every day.

            if you ever need to know anything about anything ever again, just ask. i'm a gifted researcher. strong hands.
            They actually drank it to avoid Scurvy.
