Duo hates other birds.

Duo is known to end every oratio with: Ceterum censeo psittacos ebrios esse delendam.

Or delendos, if you want to destroy the psittacos ebrios and not Carthaginem.

Delete is one of the very few English words that come directly from Latin (here "deletus"), with no equivalent in Romance languages.
