Never Go Against The Family

Similarities between two famous families:

  • It hardly needs to be pointed out that both are Italian. Although we were infamously asked once if our name was Polish. <rolls eyes>
  • Both have a successful family business. <wink wink>
  • Both are benevolent dictatorships ruled by the patriarch.
  • Both are well known in their respective communities.
  • Both have excessive family loyalty.
  • Both sprinkle their everyday conversations with little Italian phrases, like scusi and grazi.
  • Both patriarchs can accomplish almost anything with a single phone call.
  • Both have a trusted consigliare.
  • Both are known for large, festive parties. 🙂
  • Both have friends in the law enforcement and political sectors.
  • Both are willing to do almost any favor for a friend.
  • Both appreciate good wine.
  • Both have the ability to get things done quickly and efficiently.
  • Both know the usefulness of handguns.
  • Both agree that Francis Ford Coppola’s 3-part masterpiece is timeless.

Well, that last one may not be technically true… but you get the idea. 😉
