yarb commented on the word thalavethiparothiam
"'I have,' the Consul said, 'a slight confession to make, Hugh... I cheated a little on the strychnine while you were away.'
'Thalavethiparothiam, is it?' Hugh observed, pleasantly menacing. 'Or strength obtained by decapitation. Now then, don't be careful, as the Mexicans say, I'm going to shave the back of your neck.'"
