    goobalini is the term used in a very specific region of northern new jersey (nutley, to be exact) to describe a tight stocking cap that sits above the ears and is topped by a pom pom. it is thought to have evolved form the italian word cupola, meaning a small dome that sits atop a building.

    Monello thinks he is king of the forum, now. Just keep that in mind.

    Having too much ammunition in the house is like having too much fuel in your aircraft; the only time you have too much is when you're on fire.

    mmm If I had a choice in my last breakfast I'd ever have...it'd be a fresh, warm one of those with a cappuccino

    I never knew it was a term of 'endearment' Pretty sure my mother has used it as a PG-version of ass-hole while getting all Italian crazy on my menacing brothers. :talkingwithmyhands:
