You must say things
Like micturate, defecate, intercourse
You can't say things
Like pissing and shitting and fuck
Although they're the same
Although it's a pain
You've got to use the Latin name
"Okay, it's in Latin, so don't laugh. It's supposed to sound like this."
Pedicabo ego vos et irrumabo,
Aureli pathice et cinaede Furi,
qui me ex versiculis meis putastis,
quod sunt molliculi, parum pudicum.Lat.
—Gaius Valerius Catullus
Sometimes you’re queueing at a petrol station at 3:00A.M. in the morning, and there’s a line of murderers behind you, and you turn around and go, "Amo, amas, amat, amamus, amatis, amant!"
and they go, "Fuck, he knows Latin! He knows a dead language! Run!"
