    A Italian man walked into a bank in New York City one day and asked for the
    loan officer.
    He told the loan officer that he was going to Italy on business for two
    weeks and needed to
    borrow $5,000. The bank officer told him that the bank would need some form
    of security
    for the loan. The Italian man handed over the keys to a new Ferrari parked
    on the street
    in front of the bank. He produced the title and everything checked out.

    The loan officer agreed to accept the car as collateral for the loan.
    The bank's president and its officers all enjoyed a good laugh at the
    Italian man for using a
    $250,000 Ferrari as collateral against a $5,000 loan.
    An employee of the bank then drove the Ferrari into the bank's underground
    garage and
    parked it there.

    Two weeks later, the Italian returned, repaid the $5,000 and the interest,
    which came to
    $15.41.
    The loan officer said, "Sir, we are very happy to have had your business,
    and this
    transaction has worked out very nicely, but we are a little puzzled.
    While you were away, we checked you out and found that you are a
    multimillionaire.
    What puzzles us is, why would you bother to borrow "$5,000"

    The Italian replied: "Where else in New York City can I park my car for two
    weeks for
    only $15.41 and expect it to be there when I return'"

    Ah, the brain of the Italian . This is why Italy is shining
