Why we adore the Italians??

 

The flavor of the month... is all that is Italian. Infact it is perennially the flavor of the month. We just can’t do with out the Italians…so we love them and adore them. Italy has become so much a part of world culture blending itself and it’s delicious pastas into the imagination of the people. In America ,where so many different cultures be it Chinese or Indian or Latino have amalgamated into one giant cosmopolitan city
The Italian flavor has always been the dominant one. Pepperoni Pizzas have side lined Sushi, Enchiladas and Shammi Kebabs.

Q. How do Italian girls shave their legs?

A. They lie down outside and have someone mow them.

Italian is in vogue today. It has been ever since Marlon Brando appeared on the screen feathering his chin with the back side of his fingers. Who can possibly forget the overpowering influence of the “Godfather” on the imagination of people. If there were nothing else just this one movie would suffice as a major contribution of the ‘Italians’. The Italian factor is responsible for some of the finest movies to come out of Hollywood. And some of the finest actors. Robert di Niro , Al Pacino each brings with himself that quintessential Italian Machismo ,a heavily accented style of acting , very very stylish.

Gorgeous hunks with a chest full of hair and beautiful divas epitomizing femininity …the Italians are one sexy group of people who have never believed in curbing their passion .There is something very endearing about the traditional image sketched of an Italian family .

 

A bus stops and two Italian men get on. They sit down and engage in an animated conversation. The lady sitting behind them ignores them at first, but her attention is drawn when she hears one of the men say the following: "Emma come first. Den I come. Den two asses come together. I come once-a-more. Two asses, they come together again. I come again and pee twice. Then I come one lasta time."

"You foul-mouthed swine, " retorted the lady indignantly. "In this country we don't talk about our sex lives in public!"

"Hey, coola down lady," said the man. "Who talkin' abouta sexa? I'm a justa tellin' my frienda how to spella Mississippi."

Another gift from Italy is the concept of mafia..a concept that has been adopted over and over again in Hollywood movies. Most of the 70’s were the era of the Mafia Families. At one point of time there were at least 10 crime families operating in New York alone. The likes of the Gambino Crime Family , The Genovese Crime Family (which has been called the ivy league of organized crime. They are the strongest and richest mafia family in the U.S. at the moment.), Lucchese Crime Family And of course not to forget the sopranos.





Q. How can you identify the Italian at the Cock fight?

A. He's the one who bets on the duck.

Q. How can you tell if the Mafia is involved in the Cock fight?

A. Well, if the Duck wins, you know they are!

I would have been cursing my self if I forgot to add her here. Probably Italy’s greatest gift ever to mankind. Some people say that there are only two really good things ever to come out of Italy and both of them belong to Sophia Loren. Born in Rome, Italy in the year 1934 as Sofia Scicolone , she is indeed Italy's most fabled export to the world.

I have mentioned the foods, the sweltry bodies, the mafias ,the accent but not the sounds of Italy.
Luciano pavarotti-- is the sound of Opera. Great booming voice that has entertained and moved audiences
world wide. The great singer has had his humble beginnings in Modena, Italy.

 

And before I take ur leave ‘ I'm gonna make him an offer you can't refuse ‘. An easy pasta recipe to keep the flavor of Italy fresh on ur taste buds.

5 tomatoes, seeded and diced
4 cloves garlic,
minced 1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
1/2 cup olive oil salt to taste

1 pound pasta

DIRECTIONS: Combine tomatoes, garlic, basil, and olive oil in a non-metal bowl. Stir in salt. Cover with plastic wrap. Allow to sit at room temperature at least 2 hours, or as long as 10 hours.

‘ Someday, and that day may never come, I will call upon you to do a service for me’... But until that day, I must say bye.
