“Dining In A Rough Restaurant: Hurry, Otherwise Expect Accidents” ("diarrhoea” backronym)

"Diarrhea” ("diarrhoea" is the popular spelling in the UK) is a difficult word to spell. Many people use a backronym (back acronym) or mnemonic.

“Dining In A Rough Restaurant: Hurry, Otherwise Expect Accidents!” was posted on the blog Work Life Spirit on June 17, 2011. “Dining In A Rough Restaurant Hurry Otherwise Expect Accidents” was printed in The Sun (London, UK) on November 16, 2018.

“Diarrhoea Is A Really Runny Heap Of Endless Amounts” and “Doesn’t It Always Run Really Horribly Over Each Ankle” are other “diarrhoea” mnemonics.


Wikipedia: Diarrhea
Diarrhea, also spelled diarrhoea, is the condition of having at least three loose, liquid, or watery bowel movements each day.

Diarrhoea is such a hard word to spell, and even though I write a blog about Crohn’s Disease I still struggle with spelling the crazy word! Fortunately there are some mnemonics around to help you remember:

. Diarrhoea Is A Really Rather Humiliating Occurrence, Especially Annoying!
. Dash In A Real Rush, Hurry Or Else Accident!
. Dining In A Rough Restaurant: Hurry, Otherwise Expect Accidents!
. Diarrhoea Is A Really Runny Heap Of Endless Amounts
