Fans of The Red Green Show* will recognize the thread title as a pseudo-Latin translation of the Possum Lodge motto “When all else fails, play dead” I need a motto for my Warhammer 40 Astra Militarum force, the proud XXIII Praetorian - “The Knights of Perdicia”. I’m prepared to use the Red Green translation of “When all else fails, play dead” but I’d prefer a translation that has some historical and grammatical legitimacy if possible. I’ve tried Google translate but I don’t trust it and don’t doubt the Doper community can provide a better answer.
Any help with this Latin translation would be greatly appreciated. My WH40K and Red Green fixations have been brought to my therapist’s attention.
*Yes, some people, myself included, will admit to being entertained by the show.
