I'm a big fan of Horace. I've just finished reading a translation of his Satires, and they've been very inspiring in offering a different mode and tone of poetry for me; I'm working through the Odes in English and Latin, as well.

But in reading Horace, all I can think about is the cultivated leisure he produces in his Odes. They are lovely constructions, but ones that really can only appeal to a certain type of reader. Given that, this article cracked me up. I got all the answers right myself, but they were tougher than I thought, and I might have gotten one or more wrong were I not in the middle of reading Horace now.

Who Said it: Horace or Millennial Rustic Twee?
