Voticus anti-cus Obamaerius.

AGO SOLVO VEL INTEREO
Vivite liberi aut morimini
Vive in libertate aut morere
Vive in libertate aut morere (Live in Freedom or Die)
Vivere in libertate aut mori (To Live in Freedom or Die)
no votum obamum
English: Only the strong survive.
Latin translation: Fortes soli superstites sunt
and I would use DEO GRATIAS!!!! Thanks be to God!!!!
“Voticus anti-cus Obamaerius.”
I LOVE IT! LOL!
It has been quite a few years since I took Latin but I think your right. But you probably allready know that :)
Any Latin translation thread requires the funniest Latin lesson ever from Life of Brian.
Centurion: What's this, then? "Romanes eunt domus"? People called Romanes, they go, the house?
Brian: It says, "Romans go home. "
Centurion: No it doesn't ! What's the latin for "Roman"? Come on, come on !
Brian: Er, "Romanus" !
Centurion: Vocative plural of "Romanus" is?
Brian: Er, er, "Romani" !
Centurion: [Writes "Romani" over Brian's graffiti] "Eunt"? What is "eunt"? Conjugate the verb, "to go" !
Brian: Er, "Ire". Er, "eo", "is", "it", "imus", "itis", "eunt".
Centurion: So, "eunt" is...?
Brian: Third person plural present indicative, "they go".
Centurion: But, "Romans, go home" is an order. So you must use...?
[He twists Brian's ear]
Brian: Aaagh ! The imperative !
Centurion: Which is...?
Brian: Aaaagh ! Er, er, "i" !
Centurion: How many Romans?
Brian: Aaaaagh ! Plural, plural, er, "ite" !
Centurion: [Writes "ite"] "Domus"? Nominative? "Go home" is motion towards, isn't it?
Brian: Dative !
[the Centurion holds a sword to his throat]
Brian: Aaagh ! Not the dative, not the dative ! Er, er, accusative, "Domum" !
Centurion: But "Domus" takes the locative, which is...?
Brian: Er, "Domum" !
Centurion: [Writes "Domum"] Understand? Now, write it out a hundred times.
I don’t care who you are, that’s funny.

You read my mind.
I was going to write Romanes eunt domus.
I had a rather strict (but excellent) Spanish teacher and I crack up every time I see this scene.
Who knew that there was an official English to Pig Latin converter on the web?
I’m serious, I want that phrase as a tattoo and Lord knows I don’t want the wrong stuff
