Pig Latin

Two thoughts on this subject:

1. The kids listened to an ok book in the car about a dragonslaying school. The best part, for all of us, by far, was when the wizard cast a spell on the pet pig, Daisy, and she started to speak... pig latin. 'Ellohay Yglafway.'

2. If you didn't know the gist of the famouse epigram from Juvenal 'Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?', you might translate it as 'Who cleans up the janitors?'

(It actually means 'Who watches the watchmen?', wherefrom Alan Moore took the name for his famous series.)
