The same day it was revealed that the Army’s top sexual-assault prosecutor has been suspended after allegedly sexually assaulting someone at a sexual-assault conference, the US Senate rejected a bill that would have overhauled the way the Pentagon handles sexual-assault cases.
Have a nice day.

Is the motto of the Addams Family legit latin? "Sic gorgiamus allos subjectatos nunc," to save you having to google it, and the claim is that it means "We gladly feast on those who would subdue us." I basically want more than anything for it to be real, but I expect not. Thanks in advance!
Nope! It is super fake.
I mean, some of the words are actual Latin words. “Sic” means “thus,” as you may remember from such mottoes as “Sic semper tyrannis.” “Nunc” means “now.”
"Subjectatos" could theoretically exist as a form of a rare verb, but this form (a passive participle) is not attested to in literature. "Allos" could be a rare form of a word that means "big toes."
"Gorgiamus" is nothing at all, but it LOOKS like a Latin verb form, at least. I would guess it is meant to make you think of the English word "gorge," as in to gorge yourself on something, which comes from the archaic word gorge, meaning throat, which itself comes from the Latin word "gurges," meaning whirlpool. There is a rare Latin word "gurgito" that comes from that noun, which means to engulf or flood.
So, I mean, I could say “Sic gurgitemus [this is going by analogy of the grammatical form gorgiamus looks like—for grammar nerds, specifically a first person plural present active subjunctive] allos subjectatos nunc,” but that would mean “Thus let us flood the big toes that have been placed beneath us now.”
