The idiot,formerly known as President Bush, who donned the title of Tyrranus Rectum after his infatuation with the HBO series Rome finally figured out the joke.
Never having studied Latin, W accepted help from a member of the press who had his MA in Classics from Iona College.
Bush was furious when he found out the prank that had been played on him: "You gotta get up priiity early in the mornin' to fool ole W for long! My boy the brain, Karl "Brassballs" Rove studied Latin too. In fact he was one of those Cath'lick altar sacrificers or somethin'.
"When Karl got wind of how I'd a' been tricked by the liberal press, he set me straight. That guy knows just about everythin' and what he doesn't know he knows how to just make it up, like those weapons of mass destucrtion...
"Anyway it was Brassballs (you know how I just love nicknames) who set me straight. He said 'Georgie, Rectum is in the objective case, tyrranus is nominative! That filthy Fourth Estater got you to look ignorant .Your new title is grammatically incorrect!'
"So I asked ole Karl what I should do. He got that exasperated look that all intelligent folk get when they talk to me for a while and he explained, 'The nominative jackass! (Brassballs loves nicknames just like me) Call yourself "Tyrranus Rectus"'
"Well, I wouldn't know the ablative from Laura's clit, so I just shrugged and said Sure Brassballs and from now on I want to be known as Tyrranum Rectus.
"No more W ,maybe folks will forget all the dumbass things I did with this new, noble Roman, grammatical correct appelation (Karl gave me that last college-level word)."
