News flash! Italian men are lazy and irresponsible, says a new study funded no doubt by Italian women.

The proof? Apparently, Italy has the world's oldest first-time fathers. According to the report, Italian men have their first child at 33, roughly two years later than men in France, Spain and Finland. And, to boot, they're no good around the house.

But, as any Italian man would tell you, it's not entirely his fault. It's mamma. Why start your own family when mamma cooks, cleans and irons so well? Need further proof:

Part of the problem was that many Italian men lived with their parents for longer than elsewhere in the world, with 40 percent of 30-34 year-old Italian males still staying at home,
said Reuters citing figures from the report.

I can't wait to mention this one at the next dinner party. Cue sinister laugh.
