Argentina’s chancellory has today summoned the Italian ambassador to express its “profound concern and ill-feeling” (precise Spanish “profunda preocupación y malestar”) about the “joke” (a word that can be used only in the loosest possible terms) cracked by the Italian PM Silvio Berlusconi featured in this post found just down the page. It’s so crass that it’s not being repeated here.
Hey, I got an GREAT idea! Anyone know a few pathetic, offensive, racist Italian jokes that will offend even a quarter the amount that Silvio offended Argentina today? Which reminds me, thanks for the “Oh I’m so terribly offended by Silvio’s weiner” mails this morning.
