Mon·te·zu·ma's re·venge

n :  diarrhea contracted in Mexico esp. by tourists
Montezuma II (1466-1520),
Aztec emperor of Mexico. Montezuma was emperor of the Aztecs at the time of the Spanish conquest. Montezuma tried to appease the Spanish but failed and was captured by them and deposed. During the ensuing Aztec revolt he was either killed by his own people or murdered by the Spanish. For the injustice done to him, he continues to wreak vengeance against the latter-day hordes of invading tourists.
