"Using Latin, per se, is not something I normally do."

I just heard that on MSNBC in connection with "quid pro quo" vs. "extortion." I'm not sure who said it but he didn't appear to be joking.

"Per se" is Latin.

Moe and Larry are conversing fluently in pig latin one day...

...but Curly just can't wrap his numb skull around it.

Moe tries to teach him. "Larry...Arry-lay. Moe...O-may."

But it's a lost cause, because Curly is too Umb-day!
