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.
