Chris has a new blog. First posting is a gloat about the cricket though – will wait for some serious java geek words…
In case you wondered what the origin of the word ‘pom‘ was:
pomÂ·my or pomÂ·mie Pronunciation Key (pm)
n. Australian & New Zealand Offensive Slang pl. pomÂ·mies
Used as a disparaging term for a British person, especially a recent immigrant.
[Shortening and alteration of pomegranate, Pummy Grant, alterations of Jimmy Grant, probably rhyming alteration of immigrant.]
