Latin phrases.

Just to stay on a Roger type humour for a minute,

a group of my students handed in a model with the words:

Asinum Asinus ?????? on a plaque

Which means as one of my very good Latin scholar friends said
A fool praises a fool. But I am blowed if I can find it again.

I replied to them in Latin,

a fronte praecipitium a tergo lupi

I can not for the life of my remember their next reply, but I got their attention.
