Today marks the 79th anniversary of the Boss getting it. You see there was this Dunkin Donuts in Brooklyn and a car containing Jesse James, John Dillinger and Guy Fawkes pulled up front and left the motor running. The trio entered armed with an 1851 Navy Colt revolver, a Thompson machinegun and a barrel of gun powder, respectively.
Once inside they asked for “the Boss” a man behind the counter went into the back and moments later a guy came out with a pink and brown shirt and matching visor that read “Boss”. “May I help you?” he asked politely. He was immediately answered with a barrage of .36 & .45 caliber bullets. Guy Fawkes by this time had returned to the parking lot to light the fuse to his keg of powder.
James and Dillinger hot footed it back to the car and the trio took off. Looking back Fawkes saw an employee pouring day old coffee on his fuse. “All things Protestant!” He exclaimed, “Foiled again!”
I’m pretty sure that’s the way it happened. According to Joe Valachi anyways.
