But these are not the real reasons why Italy is more fun than everywhere else. The real reason is this: Italians care so much about fun that the Italian language has suffix whose sole purpose is to turn a word into a party. Any word. It's a suffix you add onto a word and the word goes *POOF* and becomes a party.
And the suffix is: -ATA
Got a grill? Have yourself a GRIGLIATA
Eating sad spaghetti all alone? Throw a SPAGHETTATA
Feeling blue and your name is Jim? Why not a JIMATA?
Wish we had thought of that.
