Too many monkeys with typewriters in my opinion.

	Nothing like the hint of paradox in morning.

I prefer the catalog of catalogs that don't include themselves.

But seriously, in response to an earlier query... 

All right, but apart from the sanitation, the medicine, education, wine,
public order, irrigation, roads, a fresh water system, and public
health, what have the Romans ever done for us? 

But of all things, remember that it's not meant to be taken literally,
it's a general endorsement of all manufacturers of dairy products.

And, that the verb takes the imperative, and it's "motion towards" so
the noun takes the locative, so it's Romani ite domum.

Or (my new favorite quote, which I hope to learn in the original
language), as the namesake of this list said, upon discovering that some
fool had stolen a piece of treasure from a dragon's horde, thereby
annoying the dragon and disrupting 50 years of peace, "There's only one
thing to do, bring me my sword"  {sorry, my paraphrase isn't as good as
Seamus Heaney's translation, but you get the idea}
