No mafia stereotype? That's a very nice step forward in our image

Actually nobody I know uses ham-ham, but I agree, both are silly.

Hm, I guess you also hear stuff like "mafioso". South of Italy and Sicily is of course associated with mafia. But, when you refer to Italian individuals, it's usually one of the 3 I wrote, 2 of them are referring to food, which in Italy is really good

Probably both. "Gaga" in Slovenian also means this duck (and apparently in Russian and Bulgarian as well).

No one who's going to Paris gets to complain. It's fricking PARIS!

Enjoy!

Now, just dropped in to post this:

Sorry it's in French, but I'm wondering about the picture. That can't be in Moldova, can it?

It could be Tiraspol, the capital of breakaway Transnistria.

Champions League and Europa League are something like 1st and 2nd division (Serie A and Serie B) of European Football. In EL play teams that are not good enough for CL, but still are good.
