It's cannon and balls; WORLD OF FOOTBALL.
CATANIA president Pietro Lo Monaco has put on the war paint after star striker Giuseppe Mascara suffered sickening abuse from Fiorentina fans.
Mascara angered the Florentines during Catania's 3-1 defeat by making a gesture to them after scoring the equaliser.
The fans responded with a series of chants about the player and his family.
But a furious Lo Monaco insisted they overstepped the mark. He raged: "The chants towards Giuseppe and his family were an embarrassment. You can't shoot flies with cannons, putting players in the middle."
I doubt we'll hear a stranger quote than that all season.
