Quidquid latine dictum sit, altum videtur

Whatever is said in Latin sounds profound

amantes sunt amentes
lovers are lunatics

Carpe carpum
Seize the fish

Nihil curo de ista tua stulta superstitione
I'm not interested in your dopey religious cult

Vacca foeda. Fac ut vivas
Stupid cow. Get a life

Non sum pisces
I am not a fish

Nucleo predicus dispella conducticus
Remove foil before microwaving

Sempre ubi, sub ubi
Always wear underwear

cave quid dicis, quando, et cui
beware what you say, when, and to whom

R: it makes my day to make you laugh

J: hehehehe, that's a good one.

Peter--these are funny. I have written a trio of anagrams today--just for you. Time yourself--they're not very difficult.

From Mozart's Requiem:

Dies irae, dies illa
Solvet saeclum in favilla

Day of wrath, day of anger
will dissolve the world in ashes

At age 14, my daughter's favorite piece. I'm incorporating this into a poem about her adolescence!

Wonder what the latin word for thong was.

Nolite te bastardes carborundorum.

Don't let the bastards grind you down.

N: according to the online translator, thong is lorum. Hmmm.
Carpe lorum? Seize the Thong?

C: Hahahaha.
