Default Do you know who will be maybe offended?

There was a sardinian sheeper that badly wanted to visit the continent (Sardinia is a wild and beautiful "big" island).
One day he finally takes the ferry and gets to his aimed destination.
After few weeks, getting back home, all his fellows got really excited about the news he would tell them.
But nothing was really different in the continent, except one thing generated couriosity. He found in a shop an article called "underware".
Everybody exclaimed:
"underware! What is it?"
Then he explained is something people use in the continent. A real novelty for the sardinians.
So one of the fellows ask if he could try it also and how to wear it.
"Oh, it's very simple, you put it with the yellow side to the front and the brown to the back"

Default It is an old joke.

And furthermore it -IS- very spread in Sardinia (by ourselves, we, the "civilised" Sardinians use to have a great fun on the shepherds etc.). My parents used to tell it to me when I was young, a sort of hironic training about the need of changing underwear daily.

And basically, we have a "prince", Vittorio Emanuele, who goes around telling that all Sardinians smell like goats and sheep... but guess WHERE he spends his vacations?

Thumbs up

Six years ago I was visiting the Big island from Olbia to Oristano, passing by Guaredda and Nuoro.
My pastaway grandpa was from Tadasuni, so I could finally know the origins of part of my family.
And besides, he was a poor farmer...
