"How do you like them apples"

"A taste of the exotic for the unlucky man without a taster"

"OK time to stop or I'll get Lucretian on your ass's"

"I love the smell of bitter almonds, smells like victory"

"Venin" refers to the toxic components in snake venom. You've probably seen the word "antivenin", though "venin" alone is a lot less common.

Most people mispronounce it as anti-venom, because they don't know the word venin... apparently neither does my spell check.
