Awesome Nicknames From New York's Mafia Bust You don't mess with Benjamin 'The Claw' Castellazzo By Kevin Spak, Newser Staff Posted Jan 21, 2011 9:41 AM CST 4 comments Comments A mob suspect is led by an agent while being processed, Thursday, Jan. 20, 2011, in the Brooklyn borough of New York. (AP Photo/APTN, Pool) (Newser) – The FBI pulled off the biggest mob bust in New York history yesterday. Maybe that’ll reduce mob crime. Here’s hoping. But one thing it will definitely do is acquaint us with some of the weird, straight-out-of-the-movies nicknames New York’s mobsters are using. The Village Voice pored over the indictment looking for juicy monikers, and dug up these gems: Anthony “Tony Bagels” Cavezza Joseph “Junior Lollipops” Carna Giovanni “Mousey” Vella Vincenzo “Vinny Carwash” Frogiero Luigi “Baby Shacks” Manocchio Dennis “the Beard” Delucia Anthony “Firehawk” Licata Benjamin “the Claw” Castellazzo Anthony “Big Fat Larry” Durso Of course, mobsters don’t always give themselves these wacky noms-de-guerre. Sometimes it’s police or the press, according to Slate. The press may have called John Gotti “Dapper Don,” but he was proud of the fact that on the street he had no nickname; if you said “John,” everyone knew who you meant.
