Just a few little funnies......

......from our parish newsletter, Salve!:

A selection of Latin bumper stickers, available to you to have made up:

Sona si Latine Liogueris

Honk if you speak Latin
Die Dulci Fruere

Have a nice day!
Fac ut gaudeam

Make my day
Si hoc signum legere potes, operis boni in rebus Latinus alacribus et fructuosis potiri potes!

If you can read this sign, you can get a good job in the fast paced, high paying world of Latin!
Sentio aliquos togatos contra me conspirare

I think some people in togas are plotting against me
Utinam barbari spatium proprium tuum invadant

May barbarians invade your personal space.
Recedite, plebes! Gero rem imperialem!

Stand aside, plebeians! I am on imperial business!

(Editor's note: Why does this one remind me of Erik K?)
Flexilis sum, gluten es. Me resilit, ad te haeret.

I'm rubber, you're glue. Bounce off me, stick to you.

Yeah, we have that kind of parish newsletter.


I totally want one of those. And the Recidete reminds me of Erik K too.

These also remind me of the Funniest Envoy Magazine "At Ease" Ever: encyclicals from the first Pope from Chicago. A sample title: Aio, Tibi Dico (Yeah, I'm Talking To You)

Minor nitpick: the final word in that first one should be spelled "loqueris" instead.

All of these, IIRC, are taken from Latin for All Occasions and Latin for Even More Occasions, two novelty Latin books by a certain Henry Beard, supposedly of National Lampoon fame.

Thanks Klaus. I'll change it, when I get to a computer that's my own!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Why does this one remind me of Erik K?)

Probably because We have to use it so often. These insolent Plebes drive me batty. You would think that they would get the message, but, oh no, they think that they have some right to drive around at 45 in the fast lane. In front of Us!

Of course any business We conduct is Imperial Business, no matter how mundane.
