What do you do, Bobby?
I’m from Queens. Astoria. I own my own electrical company.

What are you wearing today?
My sunglasses are Prada. The track suit’s Armani.

It says Puma.
It’s Armani.

And how about that jewelry?
You mean my Rolex? I like class and style, I like to look good.

Where did you get it all?
Down in the district. The diamond district.

Have you always bought yourself jewelry?
Yeah. My whole life.

Is there anyone whose style you admire?
Versace. Al Pacino. Bobby De Niro.

Where’d you get that tan?
In Florida. Hollywood. I went twice already this month. I have a condo down there. I like to go lay in the sun, go out for fish.

Do you ever wear sunblock?
Absolutely not.

What product do you use in your hair?
I’m growing my hair, honey. I use gel.

What’s the last movie you saw?
A porno. Caught From Behind.

What do you do in your spare time?
You want to know what I do in my spare time, honey?I express my feelings with all sorts of women. I go to Yankees games. I hang out. I go have dinner. I go have lunch. Union dinners, union lunches.

What do you think of that inflatable rat the unions use?
I think it’s terrible. They’re legitimate gangsters.

Does that make it hard to get work done?
Not for me, but it could definitely get complicated for others.

Why not for you?
You’ve seen the pictures.
