i've lifted this quote wholesale from the facebook wall of my Italian cousin who is coming to the US in the fall to begin his freshman year of college:
hahaha yeah man it was so cool. minchia the autista was fumating a cigaro and he had ray-ban aviators! cazzo era un grande. allora, how is it without me now?for some reason or another, i find this so incredibly amusing. i think it might be derived from jealousy. i can only codeswitch out of Italian (because my vocabulary is so damn small), not back and forth like this person. my personal favorite is the morpheme-level switch in fumating. i gotta find a context to use that one.
