Hi friend,

Please see the below conversation:-

A: Who opens the door and gives trouble a mouthful of teeth?

B: John Mikey here!

A: Buona salute, John!

and then, everyone gives John an applause as he is a hero who help other people solve problem.

What does "Buona Salute" mean?

Thank you
QP

'Buona Salute' is not an English phrase, it is from another language probably one of the Romance languages such as Italian or Spanish.

Sometimes English speakers add phrases from other languages that they know into their conversations.

Edit: If I have googled it correctly it is Italian for 'Good Health'.

I lack the imagination for a witty signature.

Yes. It is indeed Italian, and literally means "Good health!"
