Regret

Teofilo Folengo, Baldo, ed. and tr. Ann E. Mullaney, Volume 2: Books XIII-XXV (Cambridge: Harvard University Press, 2008), p. 271 (Book XX, lines 624-626):
And I regret that I cannot write farts, because to show my contempt for you, I would dictate a large volume full of a hundred thousand farts.

Et mihi recrescit non scribere posse corezas,
in vestrum quoniam dispregum grande volumen
dictarem, plenum de centum mille corezis.
