Friday Morning Latin Lesson, Vol. LXXIII

June 11, 2010

I promised something different today, and I'm going to keep with that. I should have planned something to commemorate the beginning of the World Cup, and made some weak association between soccer and Roman History.

But, I won't. I'm going to stick with the plan.

Without further ado...



Click on the picture to enlarge it. Hovertext is still in the picture.

And, in case you can't read it, it says:

"Iuppite id perdat! Meus nasus prurit!"

Pronounced: "Ee-yoo-pee-tay id pair-dat! May-oose nah-soose proo-reet!"

I don't know if this qualifies as a "webcomic", or if it's even the beginning of a series within the Latin series. We'll see what happens, I guess.

And please, won't somebody lend her a hand?

Instead of "World Cup" you gave us "C-Cups". Nice.

They used metal pins back in the day to hook on the arms and head.
They had sculpture specialists to do torso, arms and head.

The sculpture foreman in antiquity:
'Ok new guy, we'll start you out with the hand job and if you get good enough, you move on to head.'

Little known fact: most Romans had no hands, and that is why they invented soccer.

Those look more like B cups to me.
