This is for all the Latin scholars out there. Well, I hope at least one of you gets a laugh out of it. (Probably more from my poor attempt at understanding Latin grammar than anything else...)
For the rest of us, here's an ad hoc translation:
Ralph Melton points out that "PullusCalidus" is masculine in gender. He also charitably says that "Some might interpret this as an error on the cartoonist's part; I prefer to interpret it as a subtle commentary on the likely sex of someone choosing the name 'HotChick'."* Now talking in #latin * Topic is 'I have this compulsion to speak in Latin' * Set by Granicus43 on Sun Mar 02 06:29:55 <blackcat> hello d00d! age/sex/location? <HotChick> R U hot??!!! <dmmaus> er... sorry, no personal details <blackcat> that's, like, so lame! <marcus16> y3s! I am a l33t haXor! * blackcat high-5's marcus16. w00t d00d!!! <dmmaus> Doesn't anyone speak English here? <HotChick> as if! <blackcat> as if! <marcus16> 4s 1f!
What a bunch of losers!
This one was no exception.
I really get a kick out of imagining Ancient Romans having access to Internet technology, and imagining the types of netspeak they'd come up with. I was very proud of my coinage of "intr0rupt0or" for "haXor" and "excelsis-V" for "high-5".
