O, wickèd, vulgar Latin

by Joanne von Spanien

So I’m sort of in love with the way Google translates Latin:

Serve male, quis est tuus amicus? …

Google: O wicked servant, who is thy friend? Why not sing praise to thy mistress, Galba?

Me: Yo, lazy slave, who’s your sketchy friend? Why you bitchin’ about your master, Galba?

Like, seriously, I doubt the equivalent Google’s translation was ever spoken on the streets of any city anywhere in any time.
