They are really into Words with Friends. Look at that intensity.

That’s a great photo.

But the video was great too.

If you described this as a still from a movie, it would have so many hackneyed, stereotypical mobster elements in it that the movie could be sure to have a rotten tomatoes score below 25%

I assume that’s some giant cigar-ashtray in the middle, but I really want to believe they’re setting up a board game.

Literally a cliche’ smoke-filled room.

But who is the photographer? :thinking:

Probably the owner of the purse and…vape? What is that little gadget on the table?

I’m old enough to remember when Rudy was the one looking at photos of groups that included an “unnamed associate” instead of being in the photo himself.

Really dashing my hopes that this was some sort of boardgame.

That third “unnamed associate” should probably try to look a little less like a stereotypical mobster.

Can this actually be how the world works? There’s a literal smoke-filled back room?

This so-called “reality” is becoming real suspect. Is there some kind of Turing Test you can use to detect if you’re a character in a work of fiction?
