What are "the trots"?


Search
: trots

Why: "Tea gives Phoebe the trots." I thought that was like having to pee all the time, but now I'm not so sure.

Answer: Diarrhea. I don't really like to talk about ... waste.

The More You Know: Another definition (that I'm pretty sure is an accident) says:
jargon, lingo, patois, argot, vernacular, slang, cant - a characteristic language of a particular group (as among thieves); "they don't speak our lingo"

"The trots" can also refer to harness racing, where a horse pulls along a cart with two wheels, called a sulky.

"Tea gives Phoebe the harness race." It makes sense.
