“Oh My!”

“We Get Mail Today?”

Monday, October 10th, 2011

Most Italians don’t really care much about Columbus Day. It’s supposed to be a day of national pride – but most Italians just shrug their shoulders and say “Do we get mail today?”

Columbus was a typical, hustling paison. He sailed for the highest bidder who happened to be Queen Isabella of Spain – convincing her that he’d find the West Indies – supposedly a land of untold riches they could easily exploit. Contrary to popular opinion, he knew the world was NOT flat – he just didn’t know how big it was.

In 1492, Columbus’s three ships  landed in America which he then claimed he “discovered” – despite the fact that Vikings were here at least 500-years before, and the country was already populated by “Native” Americans (who may already have been dancing about looking for sites for future casinos).

So ‘Columbus Discovered America’ is a good story – but not historically true. Oh well, at least he discovered America on a Monday – giving Americans another long weekend.
