What Chicago mobsters and wanna-bes say when referring to someone who is privy to or has inside knowledge of mob business. Such individuals are said to be "on the know." It means basically the same thing as "in the know" but only in reference to rackets.

This is how Chicago mobsters describe business activities that are not illegal. Gangsters often invest ill-gotten monies into legitimate businesses, which, in turn, generate what they consider to be legitimate profit. Such business are referred to being "on the legit" (despite being an essential part of a larger money-laundering enterprise).

Guy #2: Ok, buddy.

Internet Troll Personality Disorder (ITPD) is characterized by a persistent pattern of obstructing of on-topic discussion in online forums and comment threads. People afflicted with ITPD may purposefully present themselves as being inappropriately sexually provocative or racist. Often times they disingenuously express strong emotions with an impressionistic style, pretend to throw arbitrary tantrums, and never hesitate to contribute absurd, non-sequitur remarks at any perceived opportunity.

The etiology of ITPD is still being researched, but scholars agree that afflicted individuals usually enjoy some type of unfulfilling (and unsupervised) employment situation where they have access to computers with internet connections.

Italian-American conspiracy theorists are doggedly preoccupied with fringe theories pertaining to the innocence of Chicago-area mafia killers who were nonetheless indicted, shown to be guilty of their crimes (well-beyond a reasonable doubt), and incarcerated. They often complain that said mafia killers got a "raw deal" because of "bad news" disseminated by "dry beefers."

Their theories are viewed with skepticism by normal people because they are rarely supported by any conclusive evidence and contrast with institutional analysis, which focuses on people's collective behavior in publicly known institutions, as recorded in scholarly material and mainstream media reports, to explain historical or current events, rather than speculate on the motives and actions of secretive coalitions of individuals, such as Mike Maseth, T. Markus Funk, Mitchell Mars Mitch Mars, Patrick Fitzgerald, and Charlie Hernandez.

Clear-headed individuals argue that Italian-American conspiracy theory, itself, goes well-beyond the boundaries of rational criticism when it becomes nonfalsifiable--such a theory is a closed system of ideas which explains away contradictory evidence by claiming that the conspirators themselves planted it.

Italian-American conspiracy theorists typically grew up in areas like Melrose Park, Elmwood Park, Galewood, Bridgeport, Cicero, and Berwyn. They regularly troll the Chicago Suntimes' mob threads.
The Suntimes mob blog is hilarious when all the Italian-American conspiracy theorists come crawling out of the wood work, crying foul.

in strict terms, refers to a type of baseball dad in Villa Park, IL. Typically, he is middle aged and often implies that he has the benefit of some kind of vague, construction-oriented employment situation that allows him to "cut out early" so he can attend his son's games. "Mr. Gagunga" is considered a dubious social role, a peculiar individual who is dependent on yet contributes to the social fabrics of the youth baseball and local tavern communities. Regarding fashion aesthetics, his look is one of utility with a focus on comfort. Threadbare t-shirts from beer bracket softball teams, and mesh caps (worn without irony) are common, as are knock-off Oakley sunglasses. A curiously high-pitched voice--which belies his physcial demeanor--is typical. While almost always well-intentioned, the behavior of Mr. Gagunga falls within a range between acceptable and ill-advised. For example, he will invariably grab an old mitt, turn his mesh-backed cap backwards, and position himself behind home plate to warm up his son when he pitches, even though the team's catcher is geared-up and ready. Also, he will often convince his boss to sponsor his son's teams, though it is never entirely clear from the name of the company in what industry they do business. Mr. Gagunga is known to be a very loose with foul language around players and their families, though this is slightly mitigated by the fact that he consistently brings the best post-game snacks and beverages for the team.
Kid: "Mr. Gagunga says he' gonna show Davey how to throw a slider."

Dad: "What Mr. Gagunga needs to do is show Davey how to throw strikes and work on fundamentals."

Guy #1: One time, when I was learning to drive, I was passing this guy on the left, and I accidentally put the car in "park" because I thought the "P" stood for "pass." That destroyed the transmission, immediately. At the time, I was doing 80-miles per hour on the freeway.

Guy #2: That's hilaritas.
