E pericoloso sposersi

29 May

Many years ago I remember someone often said “E pericoloso sposersi” and laughed. I asked what it meant and was told it was a pun in Italian and that it meant that it was dangerous to get married.

I didn’t understand why it was dangerous to get married, nor did I understand what was laughable about it. But nevermind, as the adult world was still very foreign to me.

Years later I was in an Italian train and spotted a notice by a window: “E pericoloso sporgersi” which meant it was dangerous to lean out of the window. Aha. Now it made sense!

However the mystery remains ; what made this person often say “E pericoloso sposersi” and laugh? Perhaps he had an omnipresent wife…

What do you think?
