Overview

Sometimes unfairly described as a dead language, Latin has a life of its own when it comes to describing everything from food and drink to dogs and politicians. This brutally hilarious book compiles English (mis) translations of Latin aphorisms, limericks, poems, puns, jokes, anecdotes, graffiti, verbal abuse, and epitaphs (and epithets!) through the ages. It's the perfect source for increasing your Latin word power! Phrases are arranged in sections entitled Taking a Sick Day, In Vino—Veritable Disaster, Useful Chat-Up Lines, Love Hurts, How to Get Ahead in Business, and Everyone's a Critic. It all adds up to a language that's very much alive. Black-and-white illustrations.
