Vene Vidi Puddli

So far, there’ve been lots of great entries for the Meager Puddle of Light Award for Best Opening Line. If you haven’t sent in your own yet, or you’d like to send another (maximum three per person please), there’s still time to take part. 

 

To enter, just follow these simple guidelines.

 

I’ll be cut & pasting everyone’s opening lines directly from the comments/messages you sent, so if you want to check your spelling, or change them in any way, please do it before the competition closes for entries tomorrow night (11:59pm US/Eastern).

 

First round voting will start on Saturday, November 21st 

 

On a related note, I think the Meager Puddle of Light Awards need a motto. 

I toyed with Puddilurus te salutat (we who are about to Puddle, salute you), but in the end I settled on Vene Vidi Puddli (I came, I saw, I Puddled). What do you think?

They both sound vaguely scatological. I approve.

I was thinking of getting it done as a T-shirt, but I've a feeling people might misunderstand it ;)

I think I will adopt "Vene Vidi Puddli" as a motto for my aging beagle. It is all too apt these days.

How about "Better to rule in a puddle than serve in a pond"?

Not quite as catchy, huh?

Hehehe! It's catchy, but I'd have a hard time translating it into latin :)

Vene Vidi Puddli is a lot easier to remember, so that gets my vote.

Thanks, Michael, and the good thing is, it'd probably work for gladiators too - at least, it would for me :)

Veni vidi puddli, definitely! And, Karen, that's too funny about your poor old beagle. (I love beagles, but they do keep you busy, don't they?)

Puddilurus te salutat could have had some halfway decent AC/DC intro music, but I think vene vidi puddli is possibly a lot nicer than Puddilarus diligo; coitus non circum! *g*
