Fanastic Italian Hoaxter Confesses

The great newspaper hoax artist Tommaso Debenedetti has confessed. He made up five interviews with Philip Roth alone, as well as interviews with dozens of others. His defense: "Italy is a joke." What a sad day for fun!

*a very attractive joke, but a joke, nonetheless.

That may be a hoax! We Italians are nothing if not inveterate tricksters.

"I would like to be Italy's champion of the lie."

Good luck!

They keep telling me that Campari is crisp and refreshing, and I keep believing them, despite a little redneck voice in my head telling me "shit done taste like sugar'n earwax."

I thought starting Vincenzo Iaquinta was Italy's best joke?

For those who watched the wonderful sight of the great Italy going down in flames in the first round, Italy IS a joke.

Oh yeah, they are definitely a joke. And what a wonderful and deserved punishment for the flopping geriatric joke of a team they chose to field.

And what a wonderful comeuppance for young Giuseppe Rossi, a native of Teaneck, New Jersey who chose to commit himself to the Italian national team after making multiple appearances for the US youth national teams. Young Rossi did not even make the Italian World Cup team, whilst he would have started and played for a US team seriously lacking depth at striker in the absence of Charlie Davies. Alas, Rossi watches from home, joined now by his erstwhile teammates, while the US goes onto the knockout rounds.
