Oh, darn, there I go again! You know, I just can't help speaking Latin. Ecce, denuo ago, sicut soleo! Non enim possum facere quin Latine loquar. It's so second nature to me, sometimes I don't even know I'm doing it! Adeo huius mihi rei natura facta est, ut interdum nesciam quidem me sic facere! So you thought you'd already soaked up as much scire facere (savoir faire) as you could by reading that howlingly funny yet highly literate guide to all things Latin, the best-selling Latin for All Occasions. Well, you still have some things to learn. Henry Beard, having already freed former altar boys and Latin-class alumni and alumnae from their previously held assumption that Latin is dead, is now going all out to bring this formerly moribund language into the twentieth century. Henricus has realized that he simply cannot stop when there are people in this world who don't know how to say. "Please don't squeeze the Charmin!" in Latin ("Sis, noli Volvivoluptatem comprimere!"), so he has prepared an entirely new, even funnier way to deal with all possible situations. You can impress your friends as never before on St. Patrick's Day when you yell, "Hibernia in aeternum!" ("Erin, go bragh!") and wow a tour guide by musing, "Scire velim ubi taberna munusculorum sit" ("I wonder where the gift shop is"). Break into show biz with your impressions of Marlon Brando, "Proeliator fuissem" ("I could've been a contender"); Cary Grant, "ludaea, ludaea, ludaea" ("Judy, Judy, Judy"); and James Cagney. "Tu, rattus turpis!" ("You dirty rat!"). Breeze by the stiffest of maitre d's by saying, 'Cauponas percenseo" ("I'm a restaurant reviewer"). Your Latin education simply isn't complete without it. Tete oblecta! (Have fun!)
