Joe Giudice may have little patience for reality television and The Real Housewives of New Jersey cameras, but when Teresa Giudice’s hubby is featured on the show we know we’re in for a real treat.

With the exception of his unfortunate Napa outburst, Juicy Joe is loaded with some pretty funny gems, and his unique views on life are always good for a laugh. Take, for example, his thoughts on “Napoleon Syndrome,” as outlined in the sneak peek clip below.

During Gabriella and Milania’s soccer game, Tre tells Joe about her run-in at the gym with her brother, explaining that he was “a real jerk” to her. Luckily, Joe soon realizes what the problem is.

“Listen, your brother's got that Napoleon thing, ya know?” he tells Teresa.

When Teresa asks Joe if he meant to say that her brother was bipolar, he reiterates that the younger Gorga definitely suffers from Napoleon Syndrome and even offers an explanation of the sickness by explaining who Napoleon was.

“He was a little short guy and he wanted to beat everybody up,” Joe declares. “He ran a little army and then one day the army crashed and everybody turned on him. He had this little syndrome people just call now Napoleon Syndrome for short people.”

Sure, the details are a little … uh, fuzzy, but the Napoleon complex is a real thing, so we’ve gotta give Juicy some credit. Watch the sneak peek below to see his explanation!
