The cast from The Godfather?


Or maybe the guys on which that story was based?


No, just some of Mr. kenju's relatives; although not, thankfully, the three goons on the top row. Don't they look a little old to be engaging in such shenanigans?

The photo does come to life with energy and makes me wonder what was going on!

They look like they're loads of fun! Great shot!

I think you need to change it from 3 to 4, Judy. The serious but friendly fellow on the far left is up to no good also. He's got his finger pointing in the ear of one of the seated guys. A picture like this really makes you wonder about the family dynamics that led up to the pictured shenanigans! (by the way, isn't that too Irish a word for a bunch of Italians?)

This is a very, very funny picture, but the finger in the ear..... ewwwww! Ear wax.

Where do you get all these GREAT photos?? LOVE IT!

Michele sent me to keep an eye on you, Judy.

I was curious--if this picture is of your husband's relatives, then why aren't the 3 jokesters in the top row related to him? Enquiring minds want to know!!

Thats the first 'old' photo i've seen where they're not having to look like everyone else - blank faces, no smiles, posed correctly to ensure a responsible picture. But thats fantastic! I absolutley love that picture! infact - if i had that picture i would be saying that the back row were my relatives, not the front row!!!!

Love that picture!
:D

Utenzi, the men on the bottom row, far left and right are his grandfather and great uncle. I don't know anything else about the other men.

Oh, I love that...reminds me of some that I need to dig out and post. I don't have any that are funny like that, but they are funny in some of the outfits they're wearing.

What's teh cutoff age for shenanigans?

I watch old movies... and I think the old hair styles and the clothing often made men particularly look older than they were... ie... Jimmy Stewart at age 30, etc. They all look older.
