Usually used to refer to the head of an Sicilian crime family/organization (Mafia). Being someone's Godfather was a great honor in Sicilian culture, and he was expected to help in the upbringing of the baptized child, almost like a third parent.

The head of a criminal organization would look over all it's members in the same way, while he might not be related to any of them.

The term Godfather didn't really catch on until the movie(s) were released.
The Godfather settled all disputes within the family.

Solarpunk is a movement focused on a positive, ecological vision for a future where technology is used for human-centric and ecocentric purposes. It is a literary, artistic and aesthetic sub-genre and is also closely tied to eco-political activism. Solarpunk narratives have a distinctly positive and utopian foundation in contrast to the often dystopian visions found within other "punk" science fiction genres.
Solarpunk is a literary movement, a hashtag, a flag, and a statement of intent about the future we hope to create.

A cigar that has been "shelled" -- had the tobacco completely removed from inside without breaking the cigar shell -- and been refilled entirely with marijuana and packed tightly to create a large blunt the size of the original cigar.

A drink containing 1.5 oz Scotch Whiskey and .75 oz Amaretto (usually Disaronno). A classy drink which tempers the harshness of the scotch with the sweetness of Amaretto.

The person suggesting vodka is a moron.
The Godfather is one classy drink. Most definitely not containing vodka.
