    Alias Nuntii Latini.

    The news stories are not bizarre per se but the delivery is unusual:

    Suggestions are welcome if anyone knows how Cicero would have called an iPad.

    I was just saying to myself yesterday, "Ya know - not enough of our thread titles here are in Latin."

    Actually it's a Monty Python reference. (I think my nerd index just shot through the roof.)

    I often wondered why the Romans always spoke wuth english accents and was told that the plays were written bt Shakespear and performed by English actors and it became "traditional". So it should sound like this-
    Brutus: Listen Caesar, eh, nuttin personal. It's business.
    Caesar: Forgetaboutit.
    Brutus later: Dat Caesar had balls the size of egg plants. Capice? I'm just saying he was a stand up guy. Youse told me to take him out so I took him out. Quit bustin my balls about it already. What's done is done. Youse don't gotta be such a Nancy about it.
    Kinda like Shakespear meets Goodfellas. Forgetaboutit.
