Cogito, ergo, spud!
I'm not up on my Latin, but I'm guessing that "I think, therefore, I am a potato" isn't it.Frydaze1... I think I need a glass of wine. Would that be "Cogito, ergo, vino!"? ;-)
Cogito, ergo, spud!If we ignore taxonomical differences for the sake of humor:I think, therefore I yam.
Frydaze1... I think I need a glass of wine. Would that be "Cogito, ergo, vino!"?Cogito, ergo needo vino.
Hey- Frydaze1, I'm shocked. I thought for sure this would have been elementary for you. Good try anyway. And the answer is: I think, therefore I yam!

I'm about a year too late but did you ever getCaesar adsum iam forte, Brutus aterat?Has forgotten soooo much Latin.Malaoshi
Only a year? What is that amongst word friends? A mere blip.But it did lead to the following (from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dog_Latin)In P. D. Q. Bach's Hansel and Gretel and Ted and Alice, the "Monk's Aria" consists of four stanzas of Dog Latin along the lines ofEt in terra chicken pox romana; Sic sic transit gloria mañana; Sanctus estes Kefauviridiana. On the other hand, the following verses contain only Latin words, but are in fact disguised English:Brutus ad sum iam forte / Caesar aderat / Brutus sic in omnibus / Caesar sic in at.("Brutus had some jam for tea / Caesar had a rat / Brutus sick in omnibus / Caesar sick in hat.". A variant is:Brutus et erat forti / Caesar et sum iam / Brutus sic in omnibus / Caesar sic intram.("Brutus ate a rat for tea / Caesar ate some jam / Brutus sick in omnibus / Caesar sick in tram.") The following Dog Latin poem is often taught,as a joke, to English-speaking students of Latin today:O civile, si ergo, / Fortibus es in ero. / O Nobile, / Deus trux! / Vatis enim? / Causan dux.("Oh, see, Willy, see her go / Forty buses in a row. / Oh, no, Billy / They is trucks! / What is in 'em? / Cows and ducks.")
