The word Melanzane (or Melanzana) derives from the words Mela Insana, meaning "noxious apple". It is often pronounced "Moolinyan" and written as such.
"F*ckin' Moolinyan, black son of a bitch! Get the f*ck back to Jamaica." says Italian mobster Vito Satrianicchi to black hustler.
"Keep the drugs to the eggplants. I don't want them sold to Italians or any whites. Capisce?" says mob boss Carmine Smadaluzzo to his Heroin dealers.
