Vescere bracis meis

"Stand aside plebeians! I am on imperial business."

A compendium of vulgar expressions rendered in Latin is reproduced in the extended entry to provide a fig leaf for the Flea's moderated swearing policy (because this post crosses that line, walks back and does a victory dance on the line just to be sure). Just doing my bit to raise the tenor of bathroom stalls everywhere.
