Two Greedy Italians is a BBC television series that first aired on BBC Two in the UK on 4 May 2011. The series sees the chefs Gennaro Contaldo and Antonio Carluccio travelling around Italy to see how society and food has evolved over the years. It was produced by Nicola Gooch.



what i’ve learned about hannibal by tumblr so far:

Will is a crybaby. Hannibal has a obsession for food like an Italian also he needs to get laid badly. The walls remain intact but still everybody gets eaten. There can’t possibly be any character development in this serie. I’m positive Will keeps being a crybaby and hannibal will never get laid either.

What do you call a italian hooker?

…I am judging you

Soms Dutch songs about other countries:

Belgium: Belgie - Het goede Doel
France: Frankrijk - Amazing stroopwafels (actually a funny song about somebody who hates his wife and rather leave to France then getting back home)
Mexico: Mexico - Zangeres zonder naam (carnaval song, makes us laugh)
Spain: Holiday in Spain - Blof (featuring counting crows)
Germany: Over de muur - Stef Bos

there are more, but most are really, really, really laim
I also found a wiki list on Dutch songs with geographical titels: right here
It has mostly older songs however, although there are some nice rap contributes to be found if you search hard enough
(Curacao: Dit eiland - Diverse sauzen),
the list only includes traditional singers like Jan Smit*, who I personally don’t like. So this list isn’t anywhere but complete, but a start nonetheless.

* I elaborate a bit why I don’t like Jan Smit myself, under the cut.

Celano is a comune in the province of L’Aquila, Central Italy, 120 km east of Rome. It rises on the top of a hill in the territory of Marsica, below the mountain range of Sirente, and faces the valley of Fucino, once filled by a large lake, which was drained during the 19th century. After the fall of the Western Roman Empire, Celano suffered from the invasions of Lombards (6th century). The city passed under Byzantine control, and was subdued by the Lombards. From the 8th century, Charlemagne and his descendants ruled the region. Celano was elected Caput Marsorum (capital city of Marsica region), governed by the Berardi family. From 1140, it was captured by the Normans, who annexed it to the Kingdom of Sicily. Fearing that Marsica was becoming too powerful, in 1223 Emperor Frederick II ordered his army to destroy its castles. Celano suffered a long siege, which ended with its defeat and total destruction and the exile of its entire male population to Sicily and Malta. Once the feudal rights of Celano were abolished, the region came under the jurisdiction of the Giustizierato of Abruzzo. After the intercession of the Pope Honorius III, Emperor Frederick II authorized the inhabitants to return from exile. The new city was rebuilt 3 years after its destruction, 1 km from the ancient city. Celano reflourished and was once again governed by the Berardis. After a series of struggles between the Angevins and Aragonese, in the 15th century the family of Berardi was dethroned by the family of the Pope Pius II of Pienza, allied to the Aragonese, who governed. Celano was incorporated into the Kingdom of Naples till 1860, except during the years associated with the Napoleonic era and the Parthenopean Republic. In 1591, the Piccolomini family sold the county of Celano to Camilla Peretti, sister of Pope Sixtus V. The city was at times also governed by the Savelli and Sforza families and was damaged by earthquakes in the years 1695, 1780, 1915, and 2009. From 1860 on, Celano belonged to the Kingdom of Italy.

He does this at least once a month. Gilbert has stopped being surprised and instead focused on designing the optimal set of dog houses in their garden.

You heard about this Italian man who had a weird obsession for adopting cats…

I just emptied that disgusting german wine in the sink, brother.
Just so you know. You can try and keep up sweet appearances,
but we both know nobody in this house is going to drink it, just because the label states it’s ‘qualitatswein’. I’d rather drink my own piss. You can blame me if he asks about it.

*Pops up at your window* Whoa Whoa What?! I admit it probably isn’t as good as my Bruder’s Beer but how could you throw it out! At least put it in your food or something. It was probably fine to cook with. I’m sure it must go well with something. *Folds arms* Or you could have just given it to someone else…

"The H….
…Just how long have you been standing there?!”

"A while… I decided to pay you a surprise visit and got distracted. Not going to invite me inside?"

*giving him a really suspicious look*
"Very well… get your ass inside, please use the back door and not the window… the neighbors will talk and possibly shoot you if you try.
Make yourself at home, there’s beer in the fridge and wine in the sink while you wait.”
