(From “Blue Bolt” number 7, 1940.)
Rocky: “Mugsy, take the boys out and find me a snatch for later tonight.”
Mugsy: “Gee, Rocky. Should we bring our guns?”
Rocky: “Um,…if you have to. But, see if you can manage NOT to kill anyone. I don’t need no coppers on my tail, just for wanting a little tail.”
Mugsy: “Okay, Rocky.”
Man! Times were tough before internet hook-up sites.
The two don’t have to be mutually exclusive.
