The quote of the day is from Wikinews' coverage of a contretemps between the Italians and the Swedes over a report on Swedish public TV that accuses Silvio Berlusconi of using the media outlets he owns to secure political power.

This campaign is like Italian shoes. It's pointed and a bit uncomfortable.
Who knew? The French love Jerry Lewis, but the Swedes prefer Henny Youngman.
