In the limerick thread, Greg called Bob a "Pom." I had not heard it before, though no one seemed to question it. Are Americans here familiar with the word? Here is a site I found that explains it.

I've more often heard "Pommie," but essentially the same. Yes, I've certainly heard it.

So, when you've heard "Pommie," what did it mean? Is it just someone from the UK? Is it only used by someone from Australia?

As far as I know it's used exclusively by Australians to refer to British.

Friends? Naw, I just watch a lot of Aussie videos. Example: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...Home_%28TV_series%29 I only know a handful of Australians.

Ah, that makes sense. I thought you'd heard it in everyday language.
