College Series: Snarky Latin

college, latin, cross stitch

Check out our new College Series — three snappy Latin PDF pattern designs! I realize I’m mixing Greek-ish borders with Latin phrases, but that was just a pop quiz to see if you’re paying attention.

I got these phrases from the always-awesome McSweeney’s. The article by Dani Bostick is called Honest Latin Mottoes For Your Overrated University. But what do these mean?

Noli hic rem facere ridiculum =”Don’t Be An Idiot Here”.

Dormire quam superare = “To Sleep Rather Than to Excel”.

Convivium, Fornicatio, Prae Amnibus Aes =”Partying, fornication, and above all debt” .

Stitch ’em up and send ’em off to your favorite college student. It’s sure to brighten their day and confuse their peers. Your work here is done!
