Italians & Greeks

A Greek and an Italian met one sunny afternoon in Greece and shared a glass of wine.

The Greek couldn't help bragging about his rich cultural heritage. "We Greeks built the Parthenon," he said proudly.

The Italian answered, "We Italians built the Coliseum and the Sistine Chapel."

The Greek, unfazed, said, "We Greeks gave the world Socrates and Plato."

The Italian said, "We Italians gave the world Michelangelo, DaVinci and Galileo."

Somewhat frustrated, the Greek said, "Yes, but we Greeks gave the world sex."

To which the Italian calmly replied, "True, but we Italians introduced it to women."
