silly t-shirt

Postby Diadochia » Sat Nov 15, 2003 1:36 am

I'm trying to help design a t-shirt for our group's toga party... if "nunc est bibendum" translates roughly as "now we must drink", how do I say, "now we must vomit"? My verb book doesn't have the gerundive for vomo, vomere... I guess they thought we'd never need that word! Thanks in advance.

Oh dear...

Well, if you want to use vomo, I suppose the form would be vomendum :mrgreen:

Many thanks, Benissimus! Send me an address (and a size) and I'll send you a shirt! They'll be hot items on campus...

How about "trahere est facere" "quisquis loquere nobis" "fratres sunt matres" :shock: "amici aedifici amamini" "cognoscens me cognoscens te aha" "virgines abite" "prima luce feminas duce" I like that one :shock:

He's really fat, is our benissimus. You will not have a size, or even the cubed number thereof, that may fit him.

"amici aedifici amamini"
Friends of a building be loved?

"virgines abite"
Image O Episcope...

"prima luce feminas duce"
Did you mean duc? Sorry to mess up your rhyme, but you deserved it :P I'm not fat!

" O Friends of the building, be ye loved!" was meant.

And don't imply that I am not aware of dic duc fac! 'duce' was obviously for rhyming purposes. At least I'm not the one who thought that egeo was 3rd conjugation!

Oh no wait...maidens is virgines scratch that! O Virgines Venite!
