Butchered Italian Word of the Day

Word of the day:

Cafone. In butchered Italian: "gavone," pronounced, "gavoan."
Meaning- someone who has no manners, someone who can't get enough. For example- at the deli counter there are sometimes free samples. Someone starts making lunch out of them. That's a gavone.

This is a good one! I'll definitely use it to confound my midwestern neighbors.
