Why Don’t Italians Like Jehovah Witnesses?

Italians don’t like ANY witnesses.

Is there a Mafia anymore?

Organized Parsley Wars

Friday, September 15th, 2017


If you go to dinner in an up-scale Manhattan restaurant, you’ll be surrounded by elegant Mafia ambience. The china and silverware come from mob-connected restaurant supply companies.  The linen will be laundered by favored dry cleaners.  The wait staff and bartenders are unionized with a cut going to the syndicate.  All of the food, flowers, and liquor are delivered by trucks driven by Teamsters.  The city workers who inspect the place and pick up the trash get a little bonus too.  And even your FDA choice steak is resting under a bed of mob parsley.

Mob Parsley?parsley-healthy-225x300-1-150x150

Think of all the virtually-unnoticed parsley that passes through restaurants, diners, and bars.  It’s everywhere!  Garnishing food, floating in drinks, pestering pesto, and sliding through sauce.  New York Daily News columnist Jimmy Breslin said there’s so much parsley, restaurants were “serving meals that appeared to be growing lawns.”

The reason?  The Mob has a virtual monopoly on the commercial parsley business in New York City. In fact many top restaurants have a “quota” of how much they must order.  When one  owner tried to reduce his quota by picking it off diners’ plates and rewashing it, he was visited by a few guys who quickly made him a fresh parsley lover.

Don’t think of this as bad.  Think of it as the Mafia’s contribution to the Green Movement.

Parsley is one of the healthiest foods you can eat: /
