Italian For Beginners Part 2 or From When Make the Talk of the Monkeys?

I was out sick today, so I was very, very BORED.

I wanted to add more to my Italian post from yesterday, but discovered that I had reached the limits of my vocabulary. While I remembered a few additional tidbits, such as vaffunculo (screw you!), they weren't enough to really use for anything. So I located the online professional services of World Lingo to aid me in compiling translations of useful insults for cubicle workers.

The best part was when I tried to translate them BACK to English. Now I know where all those cheesy martial arts subtitles come from -- and I now feel prepared for a lucrative job in the Hong Kong film industry.

I now want to compose a screenplay composed entirely of World Lingo translations! Desires to make something of it, bag of the soil?
