Since you mentioned it in your rant, maybe you could have "mobbed" up your mob talk a little.
Like, the first panel could become: "Hey look! Dere's da mook dat dit that ting with the stealing of my clothes!"
and then on panel three be all like, "Youse is a dead man."
or a "Youse want I should maybe rough him up, boss?" That's always a dynamite line.
Mention Canolli, whacking a guy, or sleeping with the fishes.
