No problem with your English. We tend to butcher it all by our selves. Soooooo Welcome to the DC Family forum. So glad you've become a member.

Welcome Majorana. As long as you speak the language of cooking, I'm sure we'll communicate just fine. I'm looking forward to seeing some recipes from your little corner of Italy. I love Italian food, especially as they tend to use local fresh ingredients and cook it as long as it takes.

welcome, major.

luca is a colonel here, so heed his commands.

you'll meet the english "army", of bolas, harry, and gravy queen, but they're enlisted.

officers, maybe, but not official commisions.

better known as as non com poops.

sir, yes sir!

a non commissioned officer, also known as a field turd, crap, dump, or poop, sir!

it's a play on words referring to the slang nincompoop, sir!

nincompoop [ˈnɪnkəmˌpuːp ˈnɪŋ-]
n a stupid person; fool; idiot
