    Also from Google Translate set on English-to-Latin:

    Et iam omnia est ut sciat!
    Et statim Contone, rabidus mater, glacies irrumator praetor nomine cubum
    Quod vero dicitur esse in cohortis nigrae hominum,
    Ego recordatus quod materles
    Mature corpora
    Etiam tu, puer, si pueri non est mecum
    Sed iure venerunt ad me
    Sedens super asinam, ut ‘quam ego ambulo,
    Nam infirma, et matrem: et, cum in senatu res est puerum
    Nigra silentia cogis ad id vult laudis
    Et degustantur et, sicut infertur acervus
    Is est iens ut esse matrem irrumator praetor
    Ubi dicitur quod telum est asinus
    Ut tribuo is lenis
    Scio quod me asinum sepultus, cum antea nullum motum
    Hic ‘a servo, ut occidere canticum dancing
    Quod scelus ut legatur, actis redactis Charles Manson
    AK-XLVII est instrumentum
    Non stulte!
    Ego vado non potes vere potes indicare mihi in suo temptat salientem pollice dempto, non est ignotum
    Im pulsans: et vir niger virorum ex arca archa, cotidie
    Et hoc modo, septimanis, menstrua et annua
    Usque ad mutationem, quae videmus, quod ego et mater tua
    Cum capitis ejus decidit P-T-C
    Puer est puerum
    Itaque cum essem in vicino positus, tu melius anatis
    Quod est insanus sugere glacies cubum
    Ne dubium proelium
    Puer rediit a dextris Contono.

    …It kind of loses something in the machine translation, don’t you think?Report

    “This is a bit hard to translate…”

    So, basically the vandals don’t actually know Latin but want to look smart?Report

    Freely translated, my guess would be the sentiment is ‘locals only’Report
