Italian term or phrase: E non provasse a raccontare in giro che sono un pazzo, non gli crederebbe nessun
La frase che mi interessa tradurre è la prima parte ("E non provasse a raccontare in giro")

Contesto: segue un diverbio tra due personaggi in cui alla fine uno incastra l'altro e con aria ironica lo sfida così

Che ne dite?
Grazie x l'aiuto

Scusa rileggendo adesso la domanda mi accorgo che forse il personaggio sta dando del lei all'altro e non sta parlando di una terza persona, quindi dovresti adattare il dialogo o forse potresti anche dire "And I wouldn't bother going around telling people.../don't you even think of..."
