“Hey Joey”

Partial confession, by Thomas Roberto Ortini (‘Tommy’), of the murders of five men and women known to front the Ortini Family drugs operation, and two LAPD undercover officers embedded with said Family.  A telephone conversation, from one side only.  As recorded by the Joint Task Force of the LAPD, FBI and DEA. Copied to the US Marshalls Witness Protection Programme office (LA).  Note: Supplemental entry recorded approximately one year after the conversation, to indicate reactions which might present PR difficulties in any prosecution.
Permanent time stamped as……

Hey Joey!…
Whaddya mean?  It’s Tommy…
Yeah, sure…
Listen up, Joey…
We lost big on the drug deal…
I’m not saying it’s your fault…
Those as cost us, they won’t no more…
But we gotta get our money back…
I know the cartel won’t wait…
I know how we make lots of dough…
Yeah, ha-ha, very funny!…
I got a plan I tells ya…
We can make five times what we lost…
Remember that geek cousin?…
Yeah, Vinny.  He’s a writer…
Who cares?  I don’t read anyways…
So, it’s like this, Joey…
We get Vinny to write a script…
Holy Mother, you’re stupid!…
A tee-vee script, like on the box, numbskull!…
We get Tony to film it…
Tony!  Tony!  That guy that owes us…
Yeah, Joey – him.  He got a studio…
Whaddya mean what’s it about?…
The Family.  That’s the only thing worth it…
Yeah, show what we do…
I tell ya, Joey, people’ll love it…
Hell no!  We keep it all in…
The drug deals, the killing, everything…
People are so stupid they’ll lap it up…
They’ll think it’s a comedy…
The cops?  They can’t do nothing!…
They can’t take us to court for fiction…
Huh?  Yeah, Joey, youse can cap any critic who slates it!

“Tonight, an exclusive, folks!
The first in a new series spoofing…
The Mafia!  Ha-ha-ha!  Keep it here, folks!”
