This has been a rather busy week, so I don’t have a funny word, but a funny phrase:
Postquam Crassus carbo factus, Carbo crassus factus est. – Terence
After Crassus became ashes, Carbo became fat/rich.
Terence is describing a situation in which Crassus, a rich man, dies and becomes ashes (carbo), while his heir, Carbo, becomes fat/rich (Crassus). Isn’t Latin fun?
