Mugshots of New Jersey Wiseguys

"Beach" DePiro

Talking Points Memo has constructed an informative and visually pleasing slideshow of mugshots from January's "Biggest Mob Bust Ever," which we noted at the time both for its epic corralling of suspected criminals, but more playfully for its collection of some of the greatest nicknames ever given to overweight Italian-American men, as duly noted in the Village Voice.

Vincent Aulisi, also known as "The Vet," squeaked by at number 20 on our Top 20 list. He's looking sad, but like he could handle a barking dog.

And Stephen "Beach," DePiro, above, our number 18, is looking rather piqued:

The rest in the slideshow all seem to be nicknamed "Tony" or "Eddie." It's possible that the rest are floating around, courtesy of the U.S. Marshals Service, but we're sure "Junior Lollipops" and "Lumpy" look better in our imaginations.

Unfortunatley, TPM, for some reason, took all the mugshots down. Maybe they were threatened?
