This whole Comey obstruction thing has given the whole world a Corleone hard on:
Apparently, in preparation for the Russia coverage to come, they've been using the phrase, "Go to the mattresses"—a line straight from The Godfather, which is reportedly one of his favorite movies.Listen lawyers, would be pop-culture-referencing judges, youngsters who are writing all the briefs for the old farts who still think it's "edgy" etc.: it is objectively lame to reference these films in 2017.
Now there was a time -- a very long time ago, circa Neil Rogers ruling the airwaves -- when any Godfather reference was extraordinarily cool! It was fresh!
Kids, this was the 70s.
Then it entered a long mainstream phase -- think 80s (during the rise of Scarface references) and then lapsing into early stage lameness certainly by 1992.
There can be no question that by 2002 at the very latest, any conventional reference simply must be considered highly lame.
Now -- in 2017 -- you have to go deeper.
Make extensive use of Godfather Part III -- and even there stretch out a bit!
Not only go Hyman Roth, go Hyman Roth sleepwear:
In general -- either move on or give the young ones a break, huh?
