Watch and learn.

“You know that I am a great expert about women,” he says, immediately after settling in to talk. “Yesterday I got a call from my daughter. I have a grandson who is four years old, one of my six grandchildren. He went to Formentera and was eating pizza with his mother and some old friends. The pizza maker was Italian, and his daughter was serving at the table. She was very pretty. So my grandson was fascinated by this girl. He asks her, ‘what is your name?’ ‘Caterina,’ she says. ‘Oh, you are so beautiful Caterina. What beautiful eyes you have Caterina.’ Then he made his move.” Berlusconi points the first and second fingers of his right hand and twists them sharply.

“He says, ‘If tomorrow, Caterina, you come to the zoo with me, I shall show you where the crocodiles are.’ He is fascinated by crocodiles, because they look like a prehistoric animal. So Caterina went back to the kitchen to her father and said, ‘Berlusconi’s grandson is exactly like his grandfather. He asked me out to go see the crocodiles.’ So the father had a laugh about it, and made a crocodile shape out of pizza dough. Caterina goes and serves the crocodile dish to the table. The plate had not touched the table, when Alessandro says, ‘Look Caterina, if you come with me tomorrow to the zoo, I want to show you the crocodiles. The real ones!’”

    Italian Guy: If that was me- I'm- I'm just sayin', if that was me, they are lucky that was not me, because if the circumstances were such, as you have described them but with me in them, that's a very different and scary outcome for those involved. If.

    Crocodile is an old Berlusconi family nickname for penis. And the zoo is what this sick fuck of a 4-year old calls his sex pad bedroom.

    Story doesn't seem so cute now, does it?

  12. Posted by Guestest | February 7, 2012 at 2:49 PM

    All the 4-yr old did was get picked up. It was time for him to do some picking up of his own.

    My girlfriend called me a pedophile. I told her "that's a pretty big word for a 5-year-old!"

    4 year old's tend to have small fingers. I would advise Allesandro in using the whole hand, even if Caterina is a "virgin".

    Berlusconi should party with DSK

    Someone needs to tell Silvio that being "a great expert about women" is different from just having no qualms about buying hookers.

  26. Posted by Guest | February 8, 2012 at 10:48 AM

    No, it's pretty similar. Lotta very wealthy and successful guys get hookers even when they have a limitless amount of super models and high-profile actresses at their disposal, e.g. Christiano Ronaldo, Hugh Grant, Kenny Powers.
