Trentatrè trentini entrarono in Trento
Tutti e trentatrè trotterellando

Afaik is coming soon the movie The Number 23 by Joel Shumacher, starring Jim Carrey: I don’t wanna talk about the numerology concerning this number, not even about this movie, but rather about the movie Boogie Nights.
The italian subtitle for this movie is è nata una stella di 33 cm (= a 33 cm long star is born) pointing out the fact that John Holmes’ cock could have been 33 cm long.
I don’t know how this discussion was introduced yesterday at lunch (probably because I told that John Holmes was the name of one of my customers at the fnac store and some of my colleagues didn’t know who he was) but… well… Isabelle stated that 33 cm was more or less a standard size for her lovers… Ok, it was a small misunderstanding between her and Bernat, but was really funny anyway 😉 .

  • Alexander the Great died at the age of thirty-three
  • In reference to gramophone records, 33 refers to a type of record by its revolution speed of 33⅓ revolutions per minute. 33s are also known as long playing records, or LPs
  • A song by the Smashing Pumpkins on their Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness album
  • The title of the first episode of the new Battlestar Galactica television series
  • In French, Italian, Romanian and Spanish, the word a patient is usually asked to say when a doctor is listening to his or her lungs with a stethoscope (Trente-Trois, Trentatrè, Treizeci şi trei, and Treinta y Tres)
  • Number of Cantos in each of Dante’s 3 parts of the Divine Comedy

  1. Uh average size of Isabelle’s lovers’ is 33cm? Either she doesn’t know measures, or she’s blind … anyway what was the misunderstanding?

    About Dante’s Divina Commedia I guess you count the first Canto of Inferno as a prologue and therefore they’re 1+33+33+33.
    The other reference to 33 is the age the Christ died.

  2. She just said in Spanish enorme and Bernat understood is normal 😀
    I obviously know everything about the 1+33+33+33 issue, Luca, you know, I’m also Italian and I was quite good at school 😉
    I didn’t put the reference to Jesus because it was not on wikipedia (as the others) and because I was not sure whether consider it a myth or an history fact 😉
