We used to say, "Illegitimi non carborundum!" It's lousy Latin, but it's
epigrammatic.

You'll find a bunch of good, funny (and correct!) Latin sayings in *Latin
for All Occasions* by Henry Beard (or Henricus Barbatus, if you prefer). He
has a sequel out, too, but I preferred the original.

And remember, "Ad summa contendimus!"
Gaudeamus Igitur.

As far as I remember it's 'Nolite tes bastardes carbonarum'...but I'm
not entirely sure about the 'tes' bit...dang, shoulda listened in Latin
class...

For those that have been around this list for a long
time, there was a discussion about a phrase in latin
that, loosely, translated into

"Don't let the bastards grind you down"

My girlfriend just started a new job and I'd like to
get a desk sign with the slogan, but I cannot find it
in a search of the archives.

Anyone remember it or still have it around?

Thanks
