this brugmansian Aussie has mixed it up totally:

It should of course be "pantagruélique" since he associated the term
with Lord P.

on A DOG LIST it would mean Pomeranian. sometimes it means a
British Person, and I no longer know if it is a derogatory term since
i have so many limey and relatives, this sort of slang passes between
us without any rancor, other than the usual, enjoyed by close chums
and so forth.

In spite of the Wiki-definition, pom or pommie generally refers to the English, not the British.
Some will have noticed that my name is Scottish :-)
