Mafia guys need to update their nicknames

Have you seen this mobster?

More than a 100 members of the New York mafia were arrested Thursday in a huge law enforcement operation.  I didn’t really pay attention because it’s not the 1960s, but I saw some of the nicknames of those arrested, and I was suddenly interested.  Seeing some of these monikers you can’t help, but think the mob is really into perpetuating stereotypes, and they are fans of Our Gang single reel comedies.

Here are just a few of the names:

  • Whiney
  • Johnny Cash
  • Johnny Bandana
  • Tony Bagels
  • Beach
  • Meatball
  • Burger
  • Hootie
  • Junior Lollipops
  • Fat Dennis
  • Vinny Carwash
  • Baby Shacks
  • Baby Fat Larry
  • Pooch
  • Mush
  • Jimmy Gooch
  • The Claw
  • Lumpy
  • Cheeks

You can have your very own mafia name, too.  I found the Mafia Name Generator in my online travels, and while I didn’t think my name was sufficiently food-obsessed enough or colorfully descriptive enough of the physical attributes I am most insecure about, it’s still a perfectly acceptable way to waste a few minutes.
