Pom: Prisoner Of Mother England, or alternatively, Prisoner Of her Majesty.

Suggestions that Pom comes from 'pomegranate' type references to sunburn are erroneous.

Used to refer to natives of England, or the United Kingdom more widely.

Sometimes used in a derogative manner; usually used as a term of endearment.

Somewhat derogatory term used by Australians when referring to anyone from England.

Slang interpretation as Prisoners Of Mother England. Referring to the transportation to Australia from England of convicts considered the dregs of society.

Between 1788 and 1868, about 160,000 people were herded onto ships in Great Britain and 'transported' to Australia with the expectation that due to the 12,000 miles distance they would never return.

POMS is an acronym for "Piss on Myself." Similar to LOL, which is "Laugh out Loud," and ROTF, "rolling on the floor." POMS is a slightly more expressive version.
POMS!!! That joke was hilarious!
