Perhaps the oliphaunts could be placated with some plants from the division:

Lycopodiophyta

Can you make a lycopod

taco?

I think the oliphaunts would like that.

Lycopod may go well with escargot but be sure the Lycopod is not Lycopodium

otherwise

you may die.   ???

That doesn't

seem

too likely - although you might get a burn.

Lycopodium has been used in fireworks and explosives, fingerprint powders, as a covering for pills, and as an ice cream stabilizer. Today, the principal use of the powder is to create flashes or flames that are large and impressive but relatively easy to manage safely in magic acts and for cinema and theatrical special effects.

Lycopodium sp. herb has been used in the traditional Austrian medicine internally as tea or externally as compresses for treatment of disorders of the locomotor system, skin, liver and bile, kidneys and urinary tract, infections, rheumatism, and gout, though claims of efficacy are unproven. It has also been used in some US government chemical warfare test programs such as Operation Dew. Lycopodium powder is also used to determine the molecular size of oleic acid.

I take your point. It seems to depend on what part you use and how much (and possibly how you prepare it). That got me thinking of rhubarb, and I found something

educational

for Tegwen:
Rhubarb leaves can be used in honey bee colonies as a mild Varroa-cide, either as crushed leaves or in the form of a tea. Rhubarb tea soaked paper towels/shop towels or crushed leaves are placed above the broodnest. Worker bees immediately begin removing this foreign substance, exposing the colony to oxalic acid in the process. Oxalic acid is toxic to Varroa mites, and mite drops increase while these rhubarb remedies are on the hive.

I wonder what what words start with I and end with I. Maybe the

Improvisatori

could make up a word for us.

(Actually, Dean played the word always - it's just a bit unclear)

I learn new things too - while looking for stuff that begins with YS, I read about the tale of Tristan and

Ysolde

(Oops, missed that one and I thought my reply I was so smart.  :-[  )
Turned out all my work to find that palindrome was in vain.   >:(

I will have to try using the

Deegree   [ one for Hanibal ]

standards to determine the correct word next time.

however I suspect that the Deegree standards will not help too much to determine the

eeriest

word next time
