Latin LOLCat: Appearances
Here is today's Latin LOLCat. The words literally mean "Don't trust the forehead." The Latin word frons means forehead or brow, and then later comes to mean the "front" of anything, and then by further extension "appearances, the outside, external qualities" (as opposed to inward qualities that lie behind the facade).
