Free Cheese!

It's a sign of the sad state of the Boston mafia, er, the alleged Boston mafia. The purported boss, who reports to guys in Providence, has the super scary nickname "The Cheese Man."

That's right. Carmen "The Cheese Man" DiNunzio is the man the FBI says runs the Boston mafia. What happened to the days of The Rifleman, The Animal, and Cadillac Frank?

The Cheese Man is in the news today because a federal judge has agreed to let him have house arrest. The judge shot down his request, however, to work in his North End cheese shop while he awaits trial on bribery charges.

No word on whether he can keep eating cheese.

Dave: "Hello."
Cheese Man: "I just read somethin' I didn't like on your blog."
Dave: "Who is this?"
Cheese Man: "You makin' fun of the Cheese Man?"
Dave: "What?"
Cheese Man: "If you don't run a correction, you're gonna look like SWISS cheese!"
Dave: "I was only kidding. Can't you take a joke?"
Dave: "Wait, let me explain! Hello? Hello? (Silence.) Uh-oh."
