I'm not Italian but relate to their affection for furbismo--the art of getting your own way.

My dad always told me to tell the truth because it's the easiest story to keep straight. He knows me well, so know keeping things straight isn't my forte. I'm not furbo at all, but still have a grudging admiration for those who are. So this story doesn't strike me as particularly sad...

Sorry, I don't know the ropes about links in comments, but I thought this piece at Ming the Mechanic might interest you if you hadn't already seen it.
