Latin 101

Since I’m out of ideas as to what to post, but feel like posting something funny, I’ll post this article from Uncle John’s 4-Ply Bathroom Reader. It starts here.

So you thought Latin was dead? Latin For All Occasions, by Henry Beard, brings it back to life. Here are some excerpts:

Useful phrase: “Amicule, deliciae, num is sum qui mentiar tibi?”
Meaning: “Baby, sweetheart, would I lie to you?”

Useful phrase: “Perscriptio in manibus tabellariorum est.”
Meaning: “The check is in the mail.”

Useful phrase: “Braccae tuae aperiuntur.”
Meaning: “Your fly is open.”

Useful phrase: “Da mihi sis bubulae frustum assae, solana tuberosa in modo Gallico fricta ac quassum lactatum coagulatum crassum.”
Meaning: “I’ll have a hamburger, French fries, and a thick shake.”

Useful phrase: Cur non isti mictum ex occasione?”
Meaning: “Why didn’t you go when you had the chance?”

Useful phrase: “In rivo fimi sine rivo sum.”
Meaning: “I’m up the creek without a paddle.”

Useful phrase: “Est mihi nulluus nummus superfluus.”
Meaning: “I do not have any spare change.”

Useful phrase: “Lex clavatoris designati rescindenda est.”
Meaning: “The designated-hitter rule has got to go.”

Useful phrase: “Observa quo vadis, cinaede!”
Meaning: “Watch where you’re going, you jerk!”

Useful phrase: “Tractatorne in Germania Orinetali doctus est?”
Meaning: “Was your masseur trained in East Germany?”

Useful phrase: “Visne scire quod credam? Credo Elvem ipsum etiam vivere.”
Meaning: “You know what I think? I think that Elvis is still alive.”

Useful phrase: “Di! Ecce hora! Uxor mea necabit!”
Meaning: “God, look at the time! My wife will kill me!”

You can see why I used one of thee phrases for my blog. XD

    Great Stuff, do you currently have a myspace account?

    Its such as you read my mind! You seem to know so much approximately this,
    like you wrote the e-book in it or something.
    I think that you just could do with a few percent to power the message
    home a bit, but instead of that, this is magnificent blog.
    A great read. I will certainly be back.

    Hi, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet
    Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you
    a quick heads up! Other then that, amazing blog!
