At least they don't break your kneecaps! (as far as I know...)

S: Why do Mafiosi do what they do?
Me: What do you mean?
S: Why do they knock on people's doors and ask if they have accepted Jesus into their hearts?!
Me: ??? Umm, S? Are you talking about Jehovah's Witnesses?
S: Oh yeah! That's it!

I was walking to Hugendubl from Volkshochscule today and someone offered me a Watchtower. I was confused, because I thought they went only in pairs, not singly through the streets.

Bwaahaa, knee caps! That's reminds me.

I'll never forget when they came a knocking on our apt door in Stuttgart! They saw our name and started to speak Italian thinking we were native Italians...bwaaahaaa. I had to interrupt them and tell them I was American and spoke English. Luckily, their English was terrible so I was able to get rid of them.

Back here in the states, I've always heard that if you tell them you're Catholic, they will move along defeated. Sheesh!

oh just think about it, what would southern Italy (and so many other places look like) if the maffiosi started to knock on people's door asking to accept Jesus in their heart

hahaha Hilarious.

as to what Lisa says: I also say that I'm catholic and happy about it and they always leave then.

lol... :)) Your boys comes with the most funny remarks!

I've stopped answering the door on saturdays when I see the usual two "mafiosi" outside, as it feels like someone's breaking my kneecaps when discussing with them :)
