The Corner

Gay Mafiosi (cont.)

My email-bag is filling up with compilations like this:

Calo: In Sicily, women are more dangerous than shotguns. And ickier.

Kay Adams: Do you know how naive you sound, Michael? Presidents and senators don’t sleep with other men.

Michael: Oh. Who’s being naive, Kay?
