SNGF - Latin Genealogy Sayings

It's Saturday Night - time for some Genealogy Fun!!!

Your mission, should you decide to accept it (come on, it's easy this week, and you'll laugh) is to:

1) Find some of your favorite sayings, aphorisms, jokes, etc. They can be genealogy-related, or not.

2) Translate them into Latin using Google Translate (

3) Share them with us in your own blog post, in a comment to this post, or in a Facebook status line or Google Plus Stream post (impress your non-genealogy friends with your Latin skills!).

4) Of course, you could translate the Latin you read back (on my blog, or the blogs of others) into English (or your native language) using Google Translate too to see who was really funny, or mean, or romantic If you want to be really fancy, you could translate your sayings into any other language that uses Google Translate and really confuse all of us. 
And so, thanks Randy [from GeneaMusings ] for another great SNGF challenge!

There's a couple old sayings I can think of, that some of my family will recall.

Let's start with translated into Latin:

1] Gustat ita bonum tuum lingua tunde frontem inepta probatio ad plus!

2] Cum sues volant!

3] Bene butyrum mea INCURRO et me a BUCCELLATUM!

In German:

1] Es schmeckt so gut eure Zunge wird deine Stirn schlagen dumm zu versuchen, mehr zu erhalten!

2] When pigs fly!

3] Nun Butter meinen Hintern und rufen Sie mich einen Keks!

In French:

1] Il a si bon goût de vos langues se gifler votre stupide front essayer d'obtenir plus!

2] Lorsque les cochons volent!

3] Eh bien mes fesses beurre et appelez-moi un biscuit!

In Spanish:

1] Su sabor es tan bueno que vuestras lenguas se bofetada a su tonta la frente tratando de obtener más!

2] Cuando los cerdos vuelen!

3] Bueno, la mantequilla mi culo y me llaman una galleta!

And lastly, in English:

1] It tastes so good your tongue will slap your forehead silly trying to get more!

2] When pigs fly!

3] Well, butter my butt and call me a biscuit!

Okay, this was just way too much fun to be having all alone on a Saturday night! Ha ha.

Thanks Randy for a great challenge! Looking forward to next week's!
