Johnny the wiseguy got made fun of a lot. In the company of gangsters, you got made fun of a lot if you were too nervous.
And Johnny was too nervous. Every time a car backfired, he dropped to the ground and covered his head.
And people laughed at him.
One day they stopped laughing.
Johnny hit his customary deck during a real life driveby shooting after the movies, and happened to be the only one to survive.
Johnny the wiseguy started a trend that day. Everyone started hitting the deck. "Just in case," they said.
