Limboland

Can anyone tell me why it’s called this because the thought of any one of us doing the limbo makes me laugh my head off lol

Hahaha! Awww wow you have just transformed the entire way I look at limboland now!! :smiley: :smiley: Made me giggle!

They mean limbo as in the word which was borrowed from Christianity to refer to deceased babies who are neither in heaven or hell (the bit which is neither heaven or hell being limbo). Limbo can also mean a position of oblivion or neglect…

Pretty grim really. Your definition is much better!

I shall smile at the term in conjuction with MS now. Thanks!

Wikipedia has an entry is http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Limbo#Limbo_as_a_colloquialism. Limbo as not quite punitive hell comes form Augustine of Hippo and was adopted by the western church.
