Those Italians Are So Cute!

Apparently, a Naples court summoned Looney Tunes luminaries such as Tweety Bird, Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, et. al. in a criminal counterfeiting trial. As far as we know, Tweety Bird (aka Titti), Mickey (aka Topolino), Donald Duck(aka Paperino), and Daisy Duck (Paperina) are known associates of La Cosa Nostra (aka Fugeddaboutit).

And other bad jokes ensue! Without clicking on the link, can you guess which actually appeared in the article?

"Unfortunately they cannot show up, as they are residents of Disneyland," Sorotto joked. "Italy has no jurisdiction whatsoever there...now Spaghetti Village at Epcot Center Disney World, that's a whole other matter."

"It's a good thing this is all a mistake, because Tweety Bird would sing like a canary in court," Castiglione wryly noted.

"Let's hope the characters will not be prosecuted for failing to appear," Ravelli quipped.

"At first I thought Donald Duck was being brought up on an obscenity charge, because, you know, he doesn't wear pants! But then I realized it wasn't Naples Florida we were talking about," cracked Luputti.

"I understand Donald being brought to trial, but why Daisy? Why do they have to involve his wife with this, and bring shame upon his whole family? Who will take care of his three beautiful, orphaned nephews, Huey, Dewey, and Louie, should she be prosecuted? Have the authorities no decency?" Vincenzo "Three Knuckles" Mangini joked.

"If I were Tweety or Donald or Daisy, I would watch your backs. Mickey Mouse doesn't want certain things about his operation being heard or seen, and he's not going to take the chance of taking this to trial. Don't believe me? Hey, have you seen Porky Pig lately? I didn't think so." Detective Sargeant Ron Miller warned, off the record.
