Ya gotta love it when our readers send us stories to post. This one comes all the way from Italy:
“So right now, I’ m on holliday in Città Sant’Angelo, Abruzzi, Italy. Outta the blue I hear a yinzer family. The Dad say to his wife “Cheryle is zer a Wendy’s dahn at street?” Lookin for a Wendy’s in Italy? What a JAGOFF!”
Only a Pittsburgher could love ’em huh? It’s like they say, “You can take the guy outta Pittsburgh but ya can’t take the Pittsburgh out of the guy!” You can just imagine the same guy wondering into some downtown Abruzzi restaurant and:
* Being ticked off that they don’t have Heinz Ketchup
* Telling them that “soccer ain’t REAL football”
* Rolling his eyes when a local waiter doesn’t understand when he asks for EYE-talian dressing for his salad
Hey Mr. Cheryle’s Husband, your a Pittsburgher and we love ya. In the same token, if you plan on being a globe-trotter, ya might want to consult your West Penn AAA Triptick and travel guides for some pre-travel education and, PLEAAAASE don’t tell the Abruzzi locals you are very familiar with their culture because you go to the EYE-talian Day Festival at Kennywood Park every year, Ya Jagoff!!!
