    oh-my-gawwwwwwd!!!!!! This is a HOOT! You’ve really ‘branched out’ here girlfriend! They all look like real-life actors. I agree about the left one looking like Pesci! Let’s see, the middle guy, yeah…uh chubby over ‘dere, he looks like Paul Prudhomme gone gangsta, and the last guy…Dinero! “You talkin’ ta me? huh, you talkin’ ta me?” The only thing he oughta be snuffin’ out is that stinky seee-gar!

  12. I’m gonna give you to the count of 10 to get your ugly, yellow, no-good keister out my tree before I pump your feathers full of lead! One… two… ten!

    It ‘s looks to me like they’re about to make an offer that you can’t refuse!!

    You crack me up! This is perfect. Each one has a distinct character, the colors are rich. Wonderful!
