The Godfather is an alternate universe story
That is The Godfather by Mario Puzo, following the original book.

I'm not talking about the absurd mob romanticism. And never mind the implausibility of even an old Mustache Pete like Vito Corleone having scruples about the drug business.

That's just artistic license.

I'm talking about alternate universe the same way The Man in the High Castle is alternate universe.

In the climax of the story sometime around 1960 the heads of all five New York Families get whacked.

Think about how different subsequent New York City history would be, what with one single Mafia family in charge. Certainly not along the lines of the sequel movies.

Nonsense is nonsense, but the history of nonsense is a very important science.

Um. What are you smoking today? Smokin

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

I will call him a liar and a dog here and now.
