“How do you make an Italian wine?"/"Kick him in the shins.”

"Wine” sounds similar to “whine.” “How do you make a Frenchman whine? Kick him in the Beaujolais!” was printed in the Calgary (Alberta) Herald on March 5, 1993.

A riddle was posted on the newsgroup alt.tasteless.humor on July 2, 1998:

Q: How do you make an italian wine?
A: Kick him in his balls.


“How do you make Manischwitz Wine? You kick him in the balls” was posted on the newsgroup alt.security.alarms on December 29, 2007. (Manischewitz sells kosher wines. The joke has also been told using Mogen David.) “How do you make an Italian wine? You kick him in the shins” was posted on Reddit—Cleanjokes on April 29, 2019.

“How do you make a Swiss roll?"/"Push him down a hill” and “How do you make a Venetian blind?"/"Poke him in the eye” are similar riddles.
