Latin LOLCat: Sweet fruit
Here is today's Latin LOLCat: The Latin RHYMES - fructus/ductus... I am a big fan of rhyming Latin proverbs, and the rhyme betrays the medieval origin of these proverbs (the ancient Romans did not like rhyme so much). This rhyming proverb has gained a lasting fame by being used by Rabelais! If you are interested in Latin proverbs and fables, check ou the Bestiaria Latina blog.
