You Know How I Loves Me A Good Turn of Phrase

In the combox at Fr Z's, a genius names the Masked Chicken took down a Chicken Little who bemoaned, no joke, "the widespread damage caused by the current English text."
But then, a larger leghorn:
Widespread damage??...
Anyone who can read Latin will know just how badly the original ICEL translation of the Latin editio really was. It was like listening to a reading The Pride and the Prejudice by Huckleberry Finn.

Bravo, Masked Chicken!
