are you dumber than me?

carl669 thought this was worth mentioning said

i'm a fan of the Sopranos. and i always heard them saying "marone!". i figured i'd walk around saying it as well. since i could tie it back to the Sopranos, no one really questioned me. until a friend of ours actually went to Italy. it turns out they were saying "Madone!", as in, "mother of god!".

so, what does "marone!" mean? brown. i'd been walking around exclaiming "BROWN!". yep, i'm an idiot.
