With so-called 'National Pancake Day' coming, you'll probably see this one a lot ... this version from the Sacramento Bee (but it's all over the web):

It's National Pancake Day. The ancient Romans ate them and called them "alita dolcia" (meaning "another sweet" in Latin), and Shakespeare served up some lines about them in two of his comedies ("All's Well That Ends Well" and "As You Like It").

Even if we give them a pass on the 'dolcia' thing (which doesn't look like something an ancient Roman would say ...), alita must be from alitus, -a, -um, no? (i.e. "nourishment, sustenance" ... from alo)
