Latina Pro Populo.

Subtitled “Latin For People”. Here is the Amazon link. I do have to tell you all, it has been over 20 years since I read this book. I still remember it well though. It is hilarious.

In addition to teaching you the basics of the Latin language, authors Alexander and Victor Humez teach you sentences in Latin like “A war in France is bad, but a war in a chamber pot is horrible” LOL. And “O sons and daughters of France! The apples of England are foul!” Or my favorite, “In England the adulterer gives the girls good books, in France, crabs.”

Anyways, they obviously were drunk when they wrote this book. Or at least high on something. That is what makes is such a classic. (BTW, I have never personally used drugs.)

Has anyone else read this book? And what were you impressions of it? As I said, I think it is a classic.
