Haitian happiness
 n.— «So since we’ve gotten here…well since we’ve got back from the mountian village we’ve had some problems with people being sick. Diarrhea the most common and experienced by everyone! I think they call it Haitian Happiness, cause most people get it when they first come here for a while. Which is NOT a fun thing let me tell you! Some have had it for up to 2 and a half weeks now. It isn’t a very pleasent thing when your insides are churning and feel like they are gonna come out either end—meaning mouth and butt—at the same time!» —“Rice and Diarrhea” by Brianne Straughan Miss B. Straughan May 10, 2006. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
