Here's a word I had not run across before :

Falernum

Despite appearances, it does not belong in a periodic table and was not discovered by an Italian.

If someone asked me if I wanted to try a falernum, I'd probably get really nervous and avoid eye contact.

Sounds tasty, makes me wish I was somewhere in the Islands, even though I've never been (except courtesy of Hollywood ;\) ). . .

Falernum

Hey I used to drink Suffering Bastards back in the day. Now I finally know what made them taste so good. Falernum! \:D
