Italy is a lot of things depending on the day. It can be beautiful or chaotic, rural or high fashion, Alps or beaches. It is a country full of postcard perfect villages and amazing culinary traditions. But funny? That is not the first word that comes to mind when I think of Italia. The country of poetry and symphonies! Of opera and Michelangelo! But puns?
I, however, love a laugh and have a soft spot for dad humor. That is why I have been gathering the best jokes about Italy — or maybe you will cringe and claim these are actually the worst!
Whatever your sense of humor — I’m not alfreddo tell you that I love Italy! Here are my favorite puns and jokes:
What caused the tower of Pisa to start leaning?

What do you call an Italian with a rubber toe?
Why is coffee in Italy so amazing?

Oh my gosh. Those were terrible and yet somehow still the best jokes about Italy! I don’t want to post anything mean spirited so the very questionable puns will have to do – there are plenty of ‘jokes’ floating around about physical appearance and organized crime but I won’t repeat those.
