Hairy armpits? Probably Italian.

Talk about all things M*A*S*H -- the novel, the film, the television series, even the play. Not to mention the spin-offs, merchandise, cast, crew and anything else you can think of to talk about.

Hairy armpits? Probably Italian.

Post by Jeeter »

I hate starting new topics for such small ideas like this but here:

From "Bombed" (3.15)
Hawkeye: That's a hairy armpit.
Frank: Probably Italian.
Hawkeye: *glares at Frank*

I never realized this before, but could Hawkeye's glare be because Alan himself is of Italian decent? I don't know if that was really intended as an inside joke, but now that I know he's partly Italian the glare was way funnier. Although the glare was probably because Hawkeye was annoyed by Frank's constant criticism of people from countries other than the U.S.

Well, I don't know about Italians or anything (I believe it was Family Guy that noted a stereotype that all Italians have big bushy mustaches)... but good night, I'm hairy all over... just about the only place I don't have hair is the palms of my hands and the bottoms of my feet... even my ears and nose has peachfuzz on them! Apparently, THAT has something to do with my part Celtic (Scotch/Irish) background. :shock:
