Here is today's Latin LOLCat: The Latin word fama which you see here gives us the English word "fame," but the most basic meaning is "talk," in the sense of people talking and the rumors that spread as a result. More about the Latin word fama here. If you are interested in Latin proverbs and fables, check out the Bestiaria Latina blog.

Fama crescit eundo.

Rumor grows as it goes.
