This morning, while I was reading the Daniele Luttazzi’s blog and his series of post called “La Palestra” (“The Gym” in English), I decided that was worth it to translate some of the best I read. “The Gym”? Luttazzi publishes satyric jokes on his blog, from a collection of ones that he receives from his fans. But why? Because I think some of them are good even in English. Italian’s latest events are being publicized on international newspapers lately. This makes it possible to get those jokes.

There you go!
