James from London told the following story on The Graham Norton Show:
My wife is Sicilian and the first time she took me back to Sicily to meet her parents, I thought it would be a good idea to try and learn some Italian. And my fallback option would be, like most English people, to try and add vowels to the end of English words if I didn't know what to say. And after a few days of basically saying nothing, we decided to take a trip to the local shops. And after driving around for ages trying to find a parking space, my now sister-in-law managed to squeeze into the smallest space... and I wanted to say 'Good parking,' but I didn't know how to say 'good' & I didn't know how to say 'parking,' so I said 'bello,' which is beautiful, and 'parquio,' which in Sicillian means 'vagina.'"
