After further research of my own I've concluded that I was in error and the word is asomar which of course disqualifies somar as an entry. My apologies.

TENIA
Thought I had ACEITE, but there are two E's. Am I allowed that? No? Okay

But here's a good one: TEINA: (nf) Theine (caffiene found in tea)

Hay muchos de teina en té.

AVENA: oats

En Inglaterra, la avena está para los caballos; en Escocia, sostienen la gente.
This is a translation of a quote I once heard, but I can't remember who said it. I THINK it may have been Samuel Johnson's dictionary: jokes were often put in as a form of copyright.
