The cynicism of the Roman.

The people of Roma has known, over the centuries, for two of the greatest political and religious phenomena of history: the Roman Empire and the Catholic Church.

Armed with this glorious tradition, the average Roman can be unbearably cynical with the braggart who, proudly, boasted inappropriately.

For example, in Roma, when someone openly boast of muscularity and proportionality of the its body, but, in reality, is clearly thin and low, the common Roman can answer to him, ironically and in dialect, in the following way:
  • "c'hai er fisico da lanciatore de coriandoli contro vento" ("you have a physical of a pitcher, against wind, of confetti"),
  • "c'hai er fisico da scartatore de caramelle e cioccolatini" ("you have a physical of one that discards candies and chocolates"),
  • "c'hai er fisico da soffiatore de minestrine" ("you have a physical of a blower of soups"),
  • "c'hai er fisico da sollevatore de palloncini" ("you have a physical of a lifter of balloons"),
  • "c'hai er fisico da lanciatore de riso a li matrimoni" ("you have a physical of a pitcher from rice at weddings"),
  • "c'hai er fisico da sfojatore de paggine gialle" ("you have a physical of he that leaf through the telephone lists"),
  • "c'hai er fisico da sollevatore de polemiche" ("you have a physical of a lifter of controversy"),
  • "c'hai er fisico da domatore de vongole"  ("you have a physical of a tamer of clams").
