FRAMINGHAM, Mass. — Jim and Joe Rizoli think of themselves as a couple of "wicked pissahs." That's Boston-area lingo for righteous guys who stir up trouble. Righteous or not, the 54-year-old twins are stirring up plenty of trouble in this small city about 20 miles west of Boston. Framingham has 67,000 residents, 20% of whom are Brazilian, representing the largest per capita Brazilian community of any municipality in America. Some of the Brazilians in Framingham are in the country illegally, some have work visas, some were born in the United States and others are naturalized citizens.
The Rizolis scorn them all.
"Framingham has been turned into a Brazilian slave camp," Jim Rizoli told reporters in 2006. His brother Joe, the more belligerent of the pair, has repeatedly declared, "Framingham has been raped by Brazilians."
Four years ago, the Rizolis, who are native sons of Framingham, started gaining notoriety for their public-access cable television show, "Illegal Immigration Chat," a twice-weekly, 39-minute hodgepodge of racist skits, man-on-the-street interviews and recycled Town Meeting footage with running commentary from the Rizolis, who often sound like bigoted conspiracy-nut versions of the loquacious brothers on the popular National Public Radio show "Car Talk."

I think a pair of brothers are in need of some surra de bunda action from some hot Brazillian chicks.

Rizoli ... Rizoli ... fine old Cherokee name, that. Well, it must be, because no descendants of Italian immigrants would be so dumb as to despise Brasilian immigrants, would they?

Smoke a bowl, have a couple of beers, and that could actually be highly entertaining. Not at all informative since it's bad information.

Ahh, Framingham. You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy.

Ange thinks of Jim and Joe Rizoli as a pair of complete twats. That's UK area lingo for righteous ignoramuses who like to stir up trouble.

They don´t rape. They do the jobs you´re surely rejecting on a daily basis. Get over yourselves
