Jokes about Italians

Post by Neil D on Thu Nov 07, 2013 3:44 pm

As someone growing up in post-war Britain, I heard more than my fair share of jokes about Italians - almost all related to Italy's role in the Second World War, about the gears on Italian tanks, book of war heroes, rifles etc.  However, I did hear one a few years ago which is quite amusing and, though stereotypical, not maliciously so:

In Milan, traffic lights are an instruction, in Rome a suggestion and in Naples a Christmas decoration.

Now that did make me laugh.

I hate jokes as they are always at someone's  expense, but that was so funny... Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy 

However MD may not think so... Naples indeed!!!

Madam currently couldn't give a Neapolitan toss at this time - she is preparing for a funeral.

Nice one Neil D, I heard a very similar one about zebra crossings.

I'm all for a bit of humour, no-one should take offence, they're JOKES ..........especially on dark, wet, cold days like this !!

Pretty funny. As an Italian I am more used to making jokes about other nationalities, not Italian!=)
