"Gimme a Blonde With Big Tits and a Hatfull of Viagra, and I'm Off to Vegas"

While everybody's talkin' about the Feds wiretapping people, KAR must note the passing of a true paizan'. This week, we lost Vinnie "The Chin":

Vincent "The Chin" Gigante, the New York mob boss whose crazy act aimed at frustrating investigators earned him the nickname "The Oddfather," died Monday at a federal prison medical facility in Missouri of apparent heart disease. He was 77.

Once a driver for the late Mafia boss Vito Genovese, Gigante rose from being a mob street tough to the head of the crime family that bears Genovese's name.

Among Vinnie's more notable achievements was his avoidance of doing hard time for the attempted whacking of that ratshit bastard Frank Costello (*spit*).

Fans of the totally fictional show The Sopranos (there is no such thing as "the mafia" *spit*) will remember how Uncle Junior, inspired by The Chin, pretended to be stugatz crazy in public to delay his trial.

Unfortunately for Vinnie, acting like a gavone didn't work out too well for him, eventually getting pinched on a racketeering charge. He was doin' 12 large in the Federal Pen, with an extra three added on later for his whack-job act.

Riposa nella pace.
