Quidquid latine dictum sit, altum videtur

Quidquid latine dictum sit, altum videtur
Whatever is said in Latin sounds profound

For example:

Quantum materiae materietur marmota monax si marmota monax materiam possit materiari?
How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

or this gem:

Nihil curo de ista tua stulta superstitione
I'm not interested in your dopey religious cult

More.

Vescere bracis meis.
Eat my shorts

Vacca foeda
Stupid cow

Machina improba! Vel mihi ede potum vel mihi redde nummos meos!
You infernal machine! Give me a beverage or give me back my money!

Perscripto in manubus tabellariorum est
The check is in the mail

Canis meus id comedit
My dog ate it

Hostes alienigeni me abducxerunt. Qui annus est?
I was kidnapped by aliens. What year is it?

Carpe carpum
Seize the fish

Explicit leuctotem; da mihi potum
Work's done. Where's the beer?

Nucleo predicus dispella conducticus
Remove foil before microwaving
