My mother forwarded this to me the other day, I laughed my ass off.
Sure it reinforces a stereotype a lot of people don’t appreciate. But if you grew up in an Italian family in certain parts of Jersey then you grew up around some of ‘dese guys’. One thing all of them could do and did was laugh at themselves, at least around people they knew. So fucking laugh and get over it, if nothing else it adds color to family gatherings.
