A friend of mine who is a much better Latinist than I am (he edits Wikipedia - in Latin) tossed off this translation when we were chatting about Al on Facebook:

Maialis tibi sim! Maialis tibi fiam! Inquam cara, cara, cara, cara! Cara!! Cara!! Cara!! Cara!! CARA!!! CARA!!! CARA!!! CARA!!! >scalpatus<

(scalpatus = scratch)

Is that right (?) Can a native Spanish speaker translate.

Any other translations?

Thank you
Translation is accurate.

I can't check the spanish translation, but I can provide a russian translation déménagement Paris(since we already turned this topic into a list of translations from multiple languages) :)
When I did russian subtitles to UHF I translated "Let me be your hog" as
Позволь мне быть твоей свиньёй
but... that literally means "Let me be your pig", so my question for the native english speakers is:
are there any significant differences in meaning between a pig and a hog? (I mean, a hog is just a male pig, right?) :huh:
It's already that ! In any case, thank you for taking the trouble to translate it for us.
