    BTW, title of the article is "Literary Icon In The Malay Community: Celebrated Writer, Respected Educator". Kind of ironic.

    Probably something to test whether their subscriber actually read the articles or just using it to shove dog poo

    No. It is to test how many people still do Latin in their O Level.

    More Latin:

    "In caelum cerevisiae est nullum, Itaque hic bibemus illum!"

    Translation: In heaven there's no beer, that's why we drink it here!

    Laozi, wise sage, himself said,

    Cats are lactose intolerant and need a strictly carnivorous diet. Feeding them other stuff is not a good idea... Can I get you a fresh tuna steak instead?

    Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua.

    Translation:

    Nor again is there anyone who loves or pursues or desires to obtain pain of itself, because it is pain, but because occasionally circumstances occur in which toil and pain can procure him some great pleasure.

    Most mammals in maturity are lactose intolerant. Only humans aren't fully weaned so to speak and continues lapping up the lactations from mammary glands of other mammalian species right till the end of their life cycle.

    Think felines will love fresh tuna steak with a pinch of catnip even more.

    Once upon a time there were two cats, Lorem and Ipsum. After a wild night on the rooftop, Lorem bear them 3 fluffy cute kittens: Dolor, Sit and Amet. They lived happily ever after.

    That does not make any sense. But I like kittens. So why not.

    Is it just me, or does that sound like a masochist? What is the background/story of this phrase?
