I Swear It Wasn’t Me!

So Italy’s minister of public functions, Renato Brunetta, is on a mission to eradicate idleness amongst public sector workers. Trofie Wife, though indeed a freshly minted MPA, hopes to deflect any blame for this "let's put our noses to the grindstone" phenomenon. She in no way encouraged the minister to make any of the following statements:

“I don't believe Italians are anthropologically slackers.”

“Ferraris, we can make. Designer clothes, we can produce. Sun, pizza and love, we can provide a lot of,” said minister of public functions Renato Brunetta. “It's the public administration that is below par.”

Trofie Wife may have, however, waxed on a bit too long about the three-hour lunch. She apologizes if any such comments in any way lead to the smoother functioning of the Italian public sector.

Baci e gelato,

Martello e Trofie Wife
