Iocus antiquus

Quondam homo infirmus erat in nomine Steppani et nutrix eum curabat. Is amicum, quoque infirmum in nomine Crassi, habuit duoque homines saepe de nutrice locuti sunt quod nutrix erat bella gracili cum forma. Sic, primo homine ioco expleto, inquit:
"Crasse, quid appellas nutricem cum genibus immundis?"

Riserunt multum.

Minimum erat intellegentiae quotiens pro centimetrum quadratum in omni orbe terrarum. Cito abii, pecuniam perdidi; sed antea dixi quaedam puellae : - Hic locus sugit!

De orthographia

Lucius omnibus sodalibus Textkitibus salutem dicit.

Itaque 'u' pro 'u' consonante afferre soleo, uti hodiernus mos crescens magis magisque adiungitur.

Recens quemdam librum Latine scriptum comparaui, eoque omnino 'j' et 'v' litterae adhibitantur pro 'i' et 'u' consonantibus. Quamquam adhuc 'v' tantum legenda ...
