Poison? No silly, this is just pirate juice.

Kate sent in STRICK 9. She writes: Apparently this is some type of poison. Actually, it is.

Strychnine is a very toxic, colorless crystalline alkaloid used as a pesticide, particularly for killing small vertebrates such as birds and rodents. Strychnine causes muscular convulsions and eventually death through asphyxia or sheer exhaustion.

So pleasant. I bet you have lots of friends.

Sounds like a most unpleasant way to go.

And now all I have running through my mind is that old Bel Biv Devoe song....

"It's driving me out of my mind
That's why it's hard for me to find
Can't get it outta my head
Miss her, kiss her, love her, wrong move you're dead

That girl is poison
Never trust a big butt and smile
That girl is poison poison"

That's it, my next vacation I'm grabbing my camera and going to Virginia!

Seriously, are they doing drugs at the Virginia DMV? How do all these ridiculous plates get approved?!

Um, I believe strychnine is the poison added to the hallucinogen "acid" back in day.
