After the furore over Alexander the Great being gay, I thought this joke was appropriate...
A Greek and an Italian were sitting down one day debating who had the superior culture.
The Greek says, "We have the Parthenon."
The Italian says, "We have the Coliseum."
The Greek says, "We had great Mathematicians."
The Italian says, "We had the Roman Empire."
And so on and so on -- and then the Greek says:
"We invented sex."
The Italian says:
"That may be true, but it was the Italians who introduced it to women."
