Note updated 5/27/15: Thank you all for the lively discussion taking place in the comments section. I am delighted that this post has now become so popular that the comment section is attracting the attention of trolls. Please note that the following norms apply to the comments section. Comments regarding the actual video are welcome, including negative comments and complaints that Mafia parodies are insulting to Italian-Americans. The following comments will not be approved:
1) comments containing foul language;
2) personal insults aimed at me, Temple Mathews (the maker of the video), or other commenters;
3) comments that attempt to steer the discussion into what would happen if we insulted or parodied other ethnic or racial groups besides Italians;
4) comments that have absolutely nothing to do with this video and are intended to start arguments about various subjects of interest including the 2016 election cycle, and why no one in the banking industry was punished for the financial meltdown.
