He'll be back
It probably wasn't the comedy that they were looking for, but on a visit to the farmers' lobby, Silvio Berlusconi decided to illustrate the safety of mozzarella by faking illness after eating it. Luckily for Italy, he was fine.
Incidentally, with its out-of-sight, out-of-mind approach to waste disposal, Ireland is headed for a similar type of crisis that Italy is now in, since the underlying issue is what has seeped into land from unrestrained use of landfill. Just one legacy that the Celtic Tiger and Bertie Ahern are dumping, so to speak, onto someone else.
