this post is dedicated to my great-aunt who, when i explained to her that i was going to work to dubai, told me: "please, don't go there! don't go among the niggers... you know that africa is full of diseases." i tried to explain that i was not going to africa, that also when i've been to africa i've had no problems with anyone and i've got no diseases, that you don't call people niggers and that by the way in the emirates they are arabs not africans... but nothing. it was like a broken record... you know, when it jams and repeats always the same stuff: "don'tgotoafrica!don'tgotoafdon'tgodon'tdondon" (ok, you got the idea!)
so, what happened is that, when my mother came to visit me end of april, she took many pictures of abu dhabi and dubai and she sent me an e-mail saying that she showed the photos she took to my great-aunt, who said: "wow! so, in africa they are not poor. they have money! look at the buildings, they are ahead of us!" (imagine this said with the trembling voice of an 85 years old lady and of course a very heavy italian accent... i swear i was laughing my ass off thinking about my mom who had to take an atlas and show her what the arabian peninsula is!).

C.: "peut-être c’est parce-que il y a les putes là-bas!"
M.: "non, c’est parce-que je pense au temps qu’on a passé ensemble et tu me manques."
M.: "t'es devenue très très belle. chaque jour je regarde tes photos sur le facebook, je ne peux pas arreter de le faire."

vabbe', magari non vestito da bin laden... direi piuttosto da toto' riina o qualcosa del genere.
beh, comunque, che putiferio si sarebbe scatenato? non voglio pensare a come avrebbe fatto la vittima (e ricordiamoci che Barak Obama e' in campagna elettorale, quindi uno scherzetto del genere potrebbe influire "l'opinione pubblica" enormemente)...
la chiamavano Liberta' d'Espressione (che espressione desueta!)
