FTT #68

[The following post requires some Latin to understand.  If you are a regular reader of this blog and you want an English rendering, please leave a comment.]

When the white smoke when up to announce the election of a new Pope last Wednesday, I was in a meeting.  I wrote a note to Scott Olsson next to me:  Habemus papam!

Scott replied:  Quis est?

I scribbled a moment and passed the note back:  Nescio.

Scott added the Roman numeral “I” and passed the paper back:  Nescio I.

Which didn’t turn out to be the name, but it was a great joke.
