An actor with a career starting in 1961 with an uncredited appearance as a dancer in Hey Lets Twist (1961). Now 34 films under his belt including Raging Bull (1980), The Super & JFK (1991) and.. um, the Home Alone series. Not a bright moment I'd say. But, I guess he's the rich famous guy and I'm the one sitting here writing a definition of him, so who am I to say....?
Joe Pesci is one crazy mofo!

When you use your dick like a baseball bat, and smack a chick in the face with it while yelling, " Jew mudda fucka Jew mudda fucka."
That bitch is asking for a joe pesci.

To bring a girl to a car and immediately lower her head to one's penis for oral sex

It'd be great to Joe Pesci a bitch and have her but gas in the car

An actor who sadly retired. He is also The Grand master of Profanity especially with the word "fuck" . Seriously James Lipton should interview this guy

A few example below.
And now an exquisite example from a fine film called Casino in which Joe Pesci plays a mobster name "Nicky Santoro"

"You took your boots off? You put your feet on the table?! You shit-kicking- stinky-horse-manure-smelling-mother fucker you?!?! You fuck me up over there, I'll stick you in the desert!!!ya understand, go there and apologize!!!!!

Another example from Casino

"Peeka boo ya fucks you. I see you now mother fucker"

And the best ones
"Fuck me? FUCK ME? You motherfucker fuck my mother!?"

Someone starts on another person in the street or there is major grievance between two people the attacker or defender will make the case known that he is not amused.
Attacker: "look u want some?"
Defender: "ere, dont make me go joe pesci on ya"

Attacker and defender then ensue in an almighty bloody battle to the death on the streets.
