I thought you would all be pleased to know that Whopper will be back in charge again on the South East Forum from this saturday, 21st April:clap3: .
But dont worry, it is not for long, just while I am away sunning myself in Mexico for 2 weeks:cool: :icecream: .
Any problems, not there will be any, just let him know.
Hopefully I will have a few fishy pics to post when I get back. If I can get online while there I may even post them before.

I would like to say how glad I am that Whopper is back for a while, the mans timing is perfect, he walked to see us yesterday just as I caught on of the match winning Rockling and saved me walking down the beach to find a Kentish man to sign my form. ----- Mind you Urly had to stop him running away:)

Montezuma's revenge
Meaning
The diarrhea (also spelled diarrhoea) that is suffered by tourists when travelling to foreign parts, in this case Mexico.
Origin
Montezuma was Emperor of Mexico, 1502-20. The sickness, more formally called "traveller's diarrhea", is usually caused by drinking unsterilised water or eating spicy food that visitors aren't accustomed to. It is a bacteriological illness, always uncomfortable, and occasionally serious. Most cases are caused by the enterotoxigenic E. coli bacterium.
The revenge element of the phrase alludes to countries that were previously colonized by stronger countries and are now, in this small way, getting their own back.
Names for it vary depending on the part of the world concerned. These usually have comic names, which reflect the embarrassment felt by the sufferer and the amusement in the lucky non-sufferers. Montezuma's Revenge is also known as the ****** Gallop and the Aztec Two-step.
Those unlucky enough to suffer from it in Asia will hear it called Ghandi's Revenge, Gyppy Tummy, Delhi Belly, the Rangoon Runs, Tokyo Trots etc.

Gyppy Tummy goes back to at least the Second World War, but Montezuma's Revenge isn't particularly old. The earliest citation of it in print is from The Washington Post, January 1960:
"‘Wasn't there anything you didn't like?’ and they admit that, like most Americans, they suffered a three-day gastric upset described by a variety of names, names like the ****** Gallop and Montezuma's Revenge."​
