On the Other Hand

 ...I did renew my acquaintance with this bit of dog Latin by reading Thirkell:

Caesar adsum iam forte

Brutus aderat

Caeser sic in omnibu

Brutus sic in at

(You've got to read it out loud with a Cockney accent to get the joke.)

I first learned this hilarious  verse, as most Latin students do, at some point early in my studies; but I'd forgotten it. I enjoyed finding it again.

O nobili

Vatis enim?
