Shortened term of Thalidomide, a German-invented drug which was used in the 1950's and 1960's across Europe to tame the side effects of pregnancy. It caused birth defects in new borns who's mother had used the drug.
The ban has now been lifted on Thalidomide as it is believed to cure a rare form of leprosy and is currently being tested for the treatment of HIV/AIDS.
It comes from the German drug that was used in the 60's to help calm the side effects of pregnancy, but sometimes caused physical abnormalities in the baby. A flid is actually originally a person with no arms and legs.
Ahhh flid! oh wait you have arms and legs..
