Imagine my surprise when I opened this book, thinking it was going to be a standard Latin phrase book, and encountered: In dentibus anticis frastrum magnam spinaciae habes (You have a big piece of spinach stuck in your teeth.) By the time I'd leafed my way through Excuses: Hostes alienigeni me abduxeunt. Qui annus est? (I was kidnapped by aliens. What year is it?), Curses: Utinam barbari spatium proprium tuum invadant!(May barbarians invade your personal space!), and Table Talk: Noli ludere alim [...]

I am still laughing and cannot contain myself, it is amazing and short, good way to start, but it does not point out what a specific word means, but will get you to talk up and quickly.

Pretty boring, not useful at all unless you enjoy being stupid or crass.

A must-have for any fan of Latin~ :D

Back story: (Scroll down for the actual review)I had a troubled career back in high school. I chose my first school only because my then best friend went there. He was a Maths genius and I was lacking a personality: following him was the only way I could survive my first year of high school. He was a saint: he made schemes and summaries for me, he helped me study I always say that he literally dragged me out of the first year. Latin was one of the subject we were studying. I wasn't excellent lik [...]

this is full of dated jokes/language, but there's a few gems in here! it's nevertheless an entertaining quick read.

Funny, clever, but far too short.

Funny and shows that even snark sounds more sophisticated in Latin

Vorrei regalare una copia di questo libro ad alcuni miei cari amici cosiddetti "latinisti" per far capire loro che anche il latino può avere un fine, per così dire "strumentale". Sentiamo spesso discutere dell'importanza dello studio del latino, a che serve e come deve essere studiato ed insegnato in un mondo quale quello di oggi. Un tempo "lingua franca" del mondo conosciuto allora, oggi continua ad essere più croce che delizia per chi è costretto a studiarlo contro voglia e anche male. Men [...]

Pretty fun, especially since most Latin learned in school isn't really practical. Unless you're really big on talking about honor and such. But sometimes I really just want to tell people "May barbarians invade your personal space!" in Latin. (Utinam barbari spatium proprium tuum invadant!) Or "You have shit for brains." (Stercorem pro cerebro habes.)

Not at all informative when it comes to grammar, but if you already know how Latin is structured, this book provides lots of words that would be difficult to find elsewhere, like 'slut'. My high school self thought that was hilarious.

Cave ne ante ullas catapultas ambules!

Vah!Denuone Latine loquebar?

It's just a list of funny latin phrases.Somewhat entertaining, but meh.

Great ideas for cards

Cute. I laughed quite a few times. Would be more helpful if macrons were included over long vowels for pronunciation purposes.

A cute book to flip through.

Very fun and enjoyable book

Great little book to get some amusing phrases in Latin.

Funny.

Fun, interesting addition to a Latin curriculum.
