Don't ask me how I found this, but this Italian Jack Bauer fan blog is one of the funniest things I've seen all week. It's basically Chuck Norris facts, but with "Chuck Norris" replaced by "Jack Bauer", and the whole thing translated into Italian, complete with subtly Europeanised cultural references. For instance:
La Svizzera ha scelto di essere neutra per essere sicura di essere sempre e solo dalla parte di Jack Bauer. ("Switzerland decided to be neutral to make sure they would always be on Jack Bauer's side.")Or:
Dopo aver torturato Copernico,Jack Bauer riuscì a fargli ammettere che il sistema solare non gira attorno al sole ma attorno a Jack Bauer. ("After torturing Copernicus, Jack Bauer forced him to admit that the solar system doesn't revolve around the sun—it revolves around Jack Bauer.")But I think my favourite is still:
Jack Bauer non ha mai preso la licenza per guidare un elicottero,ma lo guida perfettamente.L’elicotterro ha paura di quello che potrebbe succedere se non coopera. ("Jack Bauer never got his helicopter pilot's license, but he can fly one perfectly anyway. The helicopter's afraid of what will happen if it doesn't cooperate.")Also, I'm glad to see my early Italian exposure/college minor have finally come in handy.
