There’s a story of a Greek and an Italian having an argument over the age old question of who had the superior culture.
The Greek said proudly, “we have the Parthenon.” And the Italian counters with “we have the Colosseum.”
The Greek retorts, “we gave birth to advanced mathematics.”
"Yes," says the Italian, "but we built the Roman Empire."
Finally, the Greek comes up with the clincher. “We invented sex,” he says triumphantly.
"That’s true," the Italian replies, "but we thought of having it with women."
