My Italian friend Riccardo was telling us about his day in Paris, and he said:

“I met a Korean girl. She was really nice… and really expensive.”

…wait, what?!  Apparently the Italian word closest to “expensive” means outgoing, but all I could picture was a little china doll.

I was discussing badly-named foods with this same friend (i.e. how the words for “penne” and “penis” in Italian are basically the same), when he exclaimed, “Well what about America?! I’m a Dick! I’m Richard!”
