How do you say 'Redundant' in Latin, anyway?

Last week's Washington Post Style Invitational (deadline midnight tonight) is looking for mottoes for government agencies. I sent in a few:

  1. Bureau of Labor Statistics - "It takes 23,780 federal workers to count the total number of federal workers."

  2. National Endowment for the Arts - "If we don't fund 'Piss Christ,' who will?"

  3. Bureau of Intelligence and Research, U.S. State Department - "When we grow up, we want to be the CIA!"

But I didn't even bother submitting the only one I really liked, because it would never clear Standards and Practices:

State Department - "Will you at least give us a reach-around?"
