Clicca & Sputta

I was playing the Totti game today (you too can play it here) and I found it absolutely hilarious. The famous (or is it?) Italian sense of humour at the forefront again. What is even more commendable is the good humour with which the great Italian number 10 has taken the innumerable jokes that inevitably followed his red card winning performance. That attitude is definitely in danger of going the way of the dodo. From Italian PM Silvio Berlussconi gagging humourists (are you listening at the AICC?) to Inzamam ul Haq's potato allergy, not too many people can tolerate humour, especially if it's directed at them (in Myanmar, joking about the ruling junta is a capital offence). Lighten up, people. It's not like attacking the guys who make fun of you makes them stop, they just go on behind your back. In any case, you dont want to offend the satirists or the humourists, they're big business (in the free world). Just ask Al Yankovic.
