Florence on the Po

Galileo averts his gaze

A gentleman should avert his gaze

Florence isn’t on the Po; it’s on the Arno. But it reminds me of a joke I used to know.

I say ‘used’ advisedly because I may have got the first half completely wrong:

Why did the earth quake? Because it saw Florence on the Po.

I wish Florence would go on the po. Right now she’s both prolific and inappropriate.

But Galileo is the perfect gentleman. You see him here looking fixedly ahead while she attends to her ‘toilette’.
