English translation:black faeces
Explanation:
jeez, i thought you were joking and I will never forget this instance of our beloved Spanish language. Ae, it's not "hairy faeces" as I madly want it to be, but "black faeces", links below. Second one says: "el color negro de la melena es consecuencia del contacto de la sangre con el ácido clorhídrico para producir hematina. Tales heces son de aspecto alquitranado". Well, full kudos to the guy who coined the term in Spanish. cheerio :)

Loved that answer, Paul. To tell you the truth, I was preparing myself for some really wise-guy answers, but if its going to be so entertaining for you guys, I got a million of them in this med. report.
Poor chap suffered a series of complications after a heart attack, and I was so worried about getting his record straight that I called the agency, "si me equivoco, me dará algo". To which the agency replied: "no te preocupes tanto, a él ya le ha dado".

Explanation:
tell you what: I shall find out where that term comes from. Even if it's the last thing I do in life, I shall get it. Tell you what too: if I find out (as I suspect) that it was actually Cervantes the one who coined it after some gothic fit in Tunicia's gaols then...well, then I'll tell the Real Academia buddies what kind of fellah they're worshipping there. Watch the space..... :)))))))))))))))
