I knew an Italian guy from Chicago who used to work with me repairing computers. This lady brought in a really old computer and wanted it repaired, it was her dead son's computer, she just wanted it working since it was her son's computer. "Whadda 'ya mean, you want to this old piece of crap working?" "Lady, I know it's your dead son's computer, but I'm no miracle worker, whadda 'ya want me to do?". She runs out crying. "Whadda I say?"

the most important presenters, actors and singers in america are Italians or Jews, why? it's my curiosity, can someone answer me?

+67claudius I didn't think of it that way, but yes, that sounds accurate.
67claudius (4 months ago)
+Negation F So Italians and Jews turned discrimination into an opportunity.
Negation F (7 months ago)
Because in the early 1900's, Italians and Jews were barred from certain big businesses in New York. As such, many of them tried to make their fortunes in the entertainment industry, where such discrimination didn't exist.

Kassidy Farrell (9 months ago)
He probably is Italian but looks more like a Northern Italian.I would know because I am Italian that grew up in Chicago but when I tell people i'm Italian they don't think I am because I don't look like the stereotypical Italian (dark hair,dark skin,and dark eyes) I have light eyes olive toned skin and light hair which makes people think I am Irish, but I see where you are coming from because he looks like he could be Irish or something.

I remember when Jay was just a stand up comedian. He'd come to Chicago and be on the air with Steve and Gary and he'd always KILL it. Steve and Gary would be laughing hysterically at Jay just being himself.

Usually, the head italian is an obese wop, so the back of the chair supports his disgusting gut, so that's why they sit in chairs backwards.

I love how Americans are so confused by their identities, I mean your great great grandfather could of been italian but yet you still think you're 100% Italian lol. You don't speak a word of it, you've never been there and probably couldn't point it out on the map but you're italian, its hilarious.

I don’t think Jay has insulted Italians. Most people know about the great contributions that Italians have made to the world of culture, art, science, etc. Mafia is something entertaining and hence a topic for many American movies. I don’t think jokes or movies about Mafia diminish or overshadow the great contributions of Italians.

Joe Kacmarynski (1 year ago)
I love Jay. One of my favorite entertainers and probably the hardest working man in Hollywood. However, I read his book 'Leading With My Chin' and was very upset about his comment regarding a visit to Des Moines in the 1970s. He stated he saw an advertisement for 'PIZZA, the NEW TASTE Sensation (sic)'. I'm now unsure if Jay has ever been to Des Moines. Des Moines has a large Italian population and many Italian restaurants with very fine Italian food and even PIZZA. I grew up in Des Moines during the 50's and 60s' and enjoyed the fine Italian food including Pizza, Spaghetti and even Guinea Grinders.

Al’s beef was good but they over expanded and the quality suffered, Mr beef is still good, but the best is Gino’s in Bensenville!

I'm Italian and thought this was a fair assumption of the way some of us act. Someday in the distant future we will learn to laugh at ourselves and not be so politically correct , maybe someday we will see that we are all one race living on one planet and just a product of our conditioning.

I don't know how people quantify a percentage of how much Europe they have, my father was from the Ukrainian as were both his murdered (1939) parents, my mother was English as were all her family, myself I was born in England, my wife her mother was English and her father was from Mauritius (RAF 1937- 1960) brought him to Britain.. so my son.. he was born in England, as was his Girlfriend although her father was from India. they have a little girl, born in England is she 12/57th European?
