Berlusconi: "Non ho mai avuto rapporti piccanti"

Silvio Berlusconi: "Non ho mai avuto rapporti piccanti con Noemi. Lo giuro sui miei figli."

I just love the literal translation: I did not have spicy relations with Noemi. Too awesome!

(If I were translating it per benino, I am sure I would use a different word. But how fun to say "spicy relations"!)

I'm assuming y'all have been somewhat following the latest Berlusconi saga in which Italy's head of state may or may not (read: DID) have some weird relationship with an 18-year-old.

I guess I will file this under 'lingua.' Literally!
