Six of the best?

 For some of us, the feast of S Mary Magdalen recalls happy Tridentine memories of her Church in Oxford during Prebendary Hooper's glorious reign. 

For others, it will evoke hilarious memories of the promulgation by the CDW of a Proper Preface containing a risibly schoolboy howler in its latinity.

Moi, both.

You have good memories indeed then. Do you think His Soon to Be Eminence Arthur Roche composed the howler?

One seems to recollect that "hortus," and especially its ablative is one of the first words taught in the first grade of the Cambridge series of Latin course books. Quintus is always drinking there.
