not long ago, letters of note posted this fine beauty in relation to the historical epic monty python and the holy grail. i passed the link along to my father–since most of my monty python adoration can be credited to him i knew he would appreciate it.
he felt that “lose as many shits as possible” would make a great motto. mottos, of course, need to be in latin. handily enough, on top of my supreme monty python knowledge, i am a latin scholar. i dutifully translated the phrase using my “authoritative” latin dictionary:
and came up with this: “amittere ut totidem shitums ut fieri potest.”
