For me, in high school anyway, it was "Caecilius est in horto. Ancilla Grumionem delectat."

I've actually never had a Latin lesson in my life. It showed when we were studying Old English at uni; the students who had learned Latin picked it up much more quickly than those of us who hadn't. I know the rhyme is gibberish in translation.

There's always the old "Latin's a dead language / As dead as dead can be / It killed the Ancient Romans / And now it's killing me."

Caesar had some strong wine.

Brutus ate a dead rodent.

Caesar became ill on the bus.

Brutus did too.

I speak no Latin at all...my understanding was that they are real Latin words but gibberish in translation...but if the poem is read aloud, it sounds like a silly rhyme in English about Caesar having jam for tea, Brutus eating something less pleasant, and both of them getting upset stomachs.

Happy to be corrected, I've never had a Latin lesson.

And there's always Semper ubi sub ubi -- "Always wear underwear"

The Cambridge Latin course, which I took for four stultifying years in high school (but not, thank god, in uni) had this one really odd section in which Caecilius, the Pompeiian protagonist of the story, buys a slave girl who "pleases him." He takes her home and introduces her to the cook, Grumio. Grumio is pleased by the slave girl. The slave girl pleases Grumio . . ." And presumably all manner of terribly degenerate Roman antics followed.

And this was before I'd even HEARD of Gor.

More's the pity.  The wonder of a Classical education is that, properly wielded, it can make you look much smarter than you actually are.  Being able to "translate" a bit of nonsense like that one is a small reward for having taken four years of high school Latin, most of which is long forgotten.

I remember watching Troy (oh Lord) with a friend who was a real Classics buff. Oh my, it was like watching hospital dramas with a doctor ("That's a child's X-ray! And it's upside down!"). Best part was Brad Pitt Achilles introducing Patroclus as his cousin or whatever. Steam started coming out of her ears.

This is pretty much the extent of my Classics education. I think it's rather comprehensive.

Darmok and Jalad at Tanagra,

Shaka when the walls fell,

Temba, his arms open

Temba at rest.

I had no idea what this was so I Googled it. I thought it sounded utterly bizarre until I got about two thirds of the way down and there was mention of what Counsellor Deanna Troi said about it. 

You could have kept me going for ages.

Like many others, a wall of text (where the poster seems to forget what a paragraph break is) can be difficult to read.

Worse is when that wall of text doesn't even have much in the way of proper capitalization or punctuation marks.  It does not take me very many words into that type of posting for me to just skip it all. 

I just learned my inability to read a wall of text (or several) is due to my youth. Yay! :D

Vidi, vici, veni.

This was on the masthead of my engineering school's student newspaper. I do not think it means what you think it means.

There's an old parody of British school history textbooks called 1066 and All That. It's hilarious.

It's explanation of this saying goes thusly:
 

Quote

Julius Caesar was therefore compelled to invade Britain again the following year (54 b.c., not 56, owing to the peculiar Roman method of counting), and having defeated the Ancient Britons by unfair means, such as battering-rams, tortoises, hippocausts, centipedes, axes, and bundles, set the memorable Latin sentence, 'Veni, Vidi, Vici', which the Romans, who were all very well educated, construed correctly.

The Britons, however, who of course still used the old pronunciation, understanding him to have called them 'Weeny, Weedy, and Weaky', lost heart and gave up the struggle, thinking that he had already divided them All into Three Parts.
