Veni vidi velcro

March 2, 2009


“Veni, vidi velcro,”  Ginette McDonald proclaimed at the Last Night of the Proms in the Oamaru Opera Hosue On Saturday night.

She then translated it, somewhat loosely, as: “I came, I saw, I stuck around.”

A quick Google search showed it’s not original and uncovered several more adaptations of  Ceasar’s veni, vidi, vici including:

Veni, vidi, vino – I came, I saw, I drank; veni, vidi, Visa – I came, I saw, I shopped; and veni, vidi, Verdi – I came, I saw, I composed an Opera.
