Dopo aver letto quel scherzo, sono certo di non essere un italiano. Ciro, secondo te sono solo i stereotipi, o c`e qualche verita?

Italian to english translation [from freetranslation.com]:

[Peter:]

"After to have read that I joke, I am certain of to is not an Italian. Ciro, second you are alone the stereotypes, or some ce verita?"

[Ciro:]

"Itself, Peter, a little one of verita' us and'. However for some reason the joke does not be publicata been for whole. Capable, you write well in Italian, puo to write me how much want. Hello"

Hello?

Ciro, The only part of Italian I am is: I'm only 5'8" tall, and I have been hit with a wooden spoon and had a shoe thrown at me. But I LOVE Italian food. Especially seafood pasta, with lots of garlic! And I was once crazy about a girl who was half Italian and half Irish.

   ...Your grandfather had a fig tree.

Four, actually; two white and two black.  And when my grandfather passed in 1992, we took cuttings from all four and planted them at my sister's house.  My nephews care for them now.

You eat Sunday dinner at 2:00.
 
Yes, but I didn't know this was peculiar to Italians.

Christmas Eve . . . only fish.

Yep.  Lotsa fried flounder, shrimp, spaghetti w/white clam sauce, et cetera...


Your mom's meatballs are the best. .

My meatballs are the best.  Mom's run a close second.


You've been hit with a wooden spoon or had a shoe thrown at you

Nope.  Never.  Not once.  But my mom did have a marble rolling pin that she'd occasionally use to emphasize a point. (and no, she never hit anyone with it)


 Plastic on the furniture is normal.

Grandparents did the plastic furniture thing.  Thankfully, that gene seems to have gone dormant since.


You know how to pronounce "manicotti" and "mozzarella."

Duh...


You fight over whether it's called "sauce" or "gravy."

Never.  We call it "gravy" unless we're talking with a non-Italian person.  Cuts down on long-winded explanations and strange looks.


You've called someone a "mamaluke."

Never.  Citrulo, cafone and stronza, perhaps.  But never 'mamaluke'.


And you understand "bada bing"

"Bada bing" isn't Italian.

;o)

...but, "Ba-da-BOOM" is, isn't it (especially repeated in certain alleys)? Ergo...

John,

Repeated in certain alleys??  I have no idea what you mean.  Ergo, I cannot answer your question.

;o)
