While I set about working on this visual masterpiece, Ricky was busily engaged in finding us a slogan that fit us well. He came up with quite the list of possible phrases each was as entertaining as the last but we needed one that worked for us and fit well in the confines of our flag. I decided to include a few of them in this post for your pleasure.
faciam ut mei memineris- I'll make you remember me
flectere si nequeo superos, achaeronta movebo- If I cannot move heaven I will raise Hell
hic sunt dracones-here there are dragons
carpe noctem- seize the night
mea navis aericumbens anguillis abundant-my hovercraft is full of eels
mulier est hominis confusion- woman is man's ruin
oleum camino-(pour) oil on the fire
omnibus locis fit caedes- let there be slaughter everywhere
and finally here is the one we chose to make our own
oderint dum metuant-let them hate so long as they fear
Now isn't that just classy? We like to pretend we are tough even though our total fighting experience adds up to slightly less than a minute (sibling and school scuffles do not count) and that is just because Ricky made a girl cry by biting her. It sounds shocking but believe me she deserved it.
Since we now had a phrase we needed an image to match. I started compiling a list of this I thought would be entertaining like swords and crowns and honey badgers (because honey badgers don't care). So after I had a list I just tried to throw them all together in that terrible program known as Paint. The result may be a little rough but then again so are we.
