Very funny that sentiment should come up, though - between the pious apologists and the carping critics I referenced earlier, it's very clear just who first tried wearing down the other, to anyone with grasp of reality unwarped by personal ideology.  I mean, anyone wants to know my motivation, you couldn't say it better than that phrase, macaronic or not.

 

But I gotta thank Monty W for the true gem: CASTIGAT RIDENDO MORES - laughing corrects morals, the basis for all great satire.  The best way to change the rules is to point out how absurd they are, as Monty put it.

 

Yessir, I like that one very much.  B)

Cuando omni flunkus moritati.   :P

 

The only other Latin I know is of the porcine variety...

...Just an interesting question;  Lots of cars have Italian or Spanish names (Including the topic of the thread, the Del Rio)  Did any cars have Latin names?  I don't know of any, but maybe a European model did.  Just wondering.

 

Well, the Taurus is the first one comes to mind.  MIght be others...

HAH. Hat's off.

 

Mine's rougher, I promise:

 

Omnis constructio de miniaturae est divisus in castra duo: pii defensores et calumniatores.

My pleasure Charlie - though I do have to point out it was Joe who set it off...  :)

Wa-a-a-aay too chicken here.  I'd be screaming, "NOOO, I THINK! I THINK! I THINK!" soon as the fading started.
