BURLESQUEPONY RIDES AGAIN
News Item: Italian Prime Minister, Monti, resigns after Burlesconi's party withdrew
support. Mr. Burlesconi is planning a comeback despite a conviction for tax fraud.
Me? I am Burlesquepony. I entertain-a ... I amuse-a. I make-a the money. An' I-a
run-a the government. This government ... I now no like-a; I make it-a fall.
Yes-a, I 'ave-a 'ad my follies and-a my fillies but my country -- 'ow you say it-a -- my
country needs me. So, I plan-a the comeback.
Fillies are good, si, but-a government is better. No more-a the Bunga, Bunga; no
more-a the parties -- just-a my party to shape-a up-a before the election?
Me? I am-a, how you say-a, a patriot. I-a love-a my country. My country needs me
...an' I need-a the country....
You see-a. I 'ave a problem, eh .... these-a, 'ow you say it-a ...left-a wing courts-a.
They 'ave-a made-a me the problem, eh?
An' in-a my new government-a ... I get-a, 'ow you say it-a .... a break.
I need-a the break. I deserve-a the break. After all I 'ave-a done for this-a country, it
can-a do something for me, eh?
