4th of July

The new immigrant from Italy was anxious to celebrate the holiday with his new American neighbors and friends, and when they all explained the significance of the Fourth of July (a little more quickly than his Italian-trained ear could quite pick up) he was left with a question: "What does it have to do with strong ice cream?" Huh? "I mean, why do you send up fireworks for the forte gelato?" (Trust me, you have to know or be an Italian to get it!)
