Ok...this explains it.

I always wondered why life here in NY/NJ was the way it is...it's the Italians...we have so many!

(btw...I am part Italian  :D)

In looking up the proper way to write and pronounce the word "Capisci" (thankless job, that...) I found a lot of this kind of stuff. The funniest was Jesus Anthony's definition of "Guido" at the Urban Dictionary. (Written by one of valid Italian descent...)

BTW- App103...
Please tell me capisci is correct, I lose sleep over these kind of things...

Bruno Bozzetto, who created this little movie, is also the creator of the popular Italian cartoon character "Signor Rossi".

There is a site (apparently a rather slow server) which has more of his flash movies, like "Yes & No" and "Adam", two of my favorites:

It is as far as I know, but exact spelling and pronunciation could be regional.

It's a bit old (a friend mailed me the link months ago), but I saw it again because it's truly hilarious ;D

But I agree with jgpaiva. Most of these things also happen in Spain... In fact, I would say that most of these things happen in all of Europe, defeating the purpose of the animation :D

I wouldn't say so... I think that the purpose of the animation is to make people laugh... And that sure was acomplished! ;)

Bozzetto is great!  :D

It's written correctly. As for the pronunciation...
Spoiler
I would probably try to write it for an non-italian as: cupeeshee. That for proper Italian. The sound of the Wiktionary writing remind me more that of some southern dialects.


Bye!

Yeah...Sicilian.  ;)

A lot of the 3rd+ generation Italians around here would even pronounce it 'Gobbeesh'. (like my husband...I live in NJ)

The funniest was Jesus Anthony's definition of "Guido" at the Urban Dictionary. (Written by one of valid Italian descent...)

Does anybody remember Andrew Dice Clay's character 'Guido from Bloomfield' that he used to do in his stand up act?

I couldn't help but think of that when I read that whole page.  ;D

btw...I married a Guido-wannabe.  :-[
