— Prrwht! Paddy Leonard said with scorn. Mr Byrne, sir, we'll take two of your small Jamesons after that and a...

one for himself and one for Nosey (who didn't need to specify)

— Stone ginger, Davy Byrne added civilly.

— Ay, Paddy Leonard said. A suckingbottle for the baby.

Mr Bloom walked towards Dawson street, his tongue brushing his teeth smooth. Something green it would have to be: spinach, say. Then with those Röntgen rays searchlight you could.

X-rays were discovered in 1895 and quickly became a popular novelty, with appreciation of their dangers developing only slowly over the next two decades. They caused fluorescent materials to glow green (not just any green material)

At Duke lane a ravenous terrier choked up a sick knuckly cud on the cobble stones and lapped it with new zest. Surfeit. Returned with thanks having fully digested the contents. First sweet then savoury. Mr Bloom coasted warily. Ruminants. His second course. Their upper jaw they move. Wonder if Tom Rochford will do anything with that invention of his. Wasting time explaining it to Flynn's mouth. Lean people long mouths. Ought to be a hall or place where inventors could go in and invent free. Course then you'd have all the cranks pestering.

TR's invention dates to 1909 and was meant to inform theatre audiences which acts had already performed

Don Giovanni, a cenar teco

Feel better. Burgundy. Good pick me up. Who distilled first? Some chap in the blues. Dutch courage. That Kilkenny People in the national library now I must.

shockingly, Bloom confuses fermentation and distillation-- both are ancient, but fermentation was by far the earlier and simpler cure for the blues

Bare clean closestools, waiting, in the window of William Miller, plumber, turned back his thoughts. They could: and watch it all the way down, swallow a pin sometimes come out of the ribs years after, tour round the body, changing biliary duct, spleen squirting liver, gastric juice coils of intestines like pipes. But the poor buffer would have to stand all the time with his insides entrails on show. Science.

A cenar teco.

'to dine with you'

What does that teco mean? Tonight perhaps.

'with you'

Don Giovanni, thou hast me invited
To come to supper tonight,
The rum the rumdum.

Doesn't go properly.

(the meaning, or the rhythm-in-translation?)
