Babbo Natale s'era appena suicidato

"Corrado Capanna continuò a sfogliare il suo libro illustrato e lesse qualche anedotto curioso che neppure lui connosceva. Sotto una foto di Jake La Motta, quella dell'incontro con Tiberio Mitri, c'era una sua frase che diceva: "La mia famiglia era talmente povera che a ogni Natale mio padre usciva di casa e sparava qualche colpo di pistola in aria. Poi, rientrava precipitosamente e a noi ragazzi diceva che Babbo Natale s'era appena suicidato."

Angelo Ferracuti, Nafta.


p.d from Nafta: "After you're the champion, first you lose your legs, then you lose your reflexes, and then you lose your friends." (Willie Pep)




(Italiano-English translation by myself:

"Corrado Capanna was taking a look to his illustrated book and was also reading odd anecdotes that not even he knew. Under a picture of Jake La Motta, that picture of his combat with Tiberio Mitri, there was a quote of him saying: "My family was so poor that every Christmas my father went outside our home and made a shot to the air with his gun. Then, he would come back nervous and tell us, to the kids, that Santa Claus had just committed suicide.")
