Well Caesar I have no idea what the text says, but it sure is a bonny lass, possibly a weight lifter for the next olympics ?:)

This is probably a bad translation but what can ya do with these online translators. It's close enough to get the gist:

"To be a miss is a miss, but it seems to me that already has too many competitions and should leave space for young people."

"Well, you know, she had the derogation."

-----------

derogation |ˌderəˈgā sh ən|
noun
1 an exemption from or relaxation of a rule or law : the massive derogation of human rights.
2 the perception or treatment of someone as being of little worth : the derogation of women.
ORIGIN late Middle English (in the sense [impairment of the force of] ): from Latin derogatio(n-), from the verb derogare (see derogate ).

---------

Excellent drawing Caesar. Demented idea that I'm sure has some relevance on the Italian scene. But, Madonna, she's my first grade piano teacher come back to make me run scales. . .

Dear Geoff, the stage Miss Italia 2013 contest.
The protagonist is Rosi Bindi, a very long-standing parliamentary member, who's also unmarried (and not really a beauty and such a well-tempered guy, to be honest).
Her party established a rule according to which You cannot be candidate to the Parliament after You accomplished two mandates, unless You expressely ask for a derogation. The first guy says, more or less "She actually is a miss, but she competited too many times and she should leave her place to younger people". The second one answered "Well, You know, she obtained a derogation".
"Pour etre une miss, elle est une miss, mais il me parait qu'elle ait participé à trop d'editions et doit laisser espace aux jeunes"; "Bien,tu sais, elle a eu une dérogation".
I guess now, if You know also some French, You may decrypt also directly some of the specific Italian words.:o;)
Thank You!

We'll wait and see at next end of February elections, dear Pat. Quite frankly I hope not. Thank You!

Dear GrsArts, I think You should have drunk even more rhum and try to forget such a meeting. :o:DLOL

Perfect translation, dear D Akey! The side explanation is in my reply to Geoff just above. Anyway some scales excercise on the piano wouldn't be bad for You to resume. I guess You had some weird sado-maso erotic dream on Your teacher then. :o:DLOL Than You!
