Subject: RE: BS: First joke thread for the year 500bc
Cicero tam dicax erat et facetus ut ab inimicis scurra consularis appellaretur. cum vidisset Lentulum generum suum hominem parvae staturae longo gladio accinctum "Quis" inquit "adligavit generum meum ad gladium?"

An original Latin joke not older than 63 BC (when C. elected was consul).

This is to give you a feeling of the proper lingo, quia complures hic scribentes linguae Latinae non satis periti esse videntur.
