“The Genius”?

The Associated Press reports:

The acting boss of the Gambino family and at least 30 other mob figures were arrested after an undercover FBI agent posing as a wiseguy infiltrated the Mafia with an act so convincing he was considered for membership, authorities said Wednesday.

Among those arrested was Arnold “Zeke” Squitieri, who allegedly took over as acting Gambino boss after Peter Gotti was convicted last year. Also facing racketeering charges is reputed underboss Anthony “The Genius” Megale.

If Megale couldn’t identify an undercover G-man, you have to wonder exactly how he earned his nickname. Were his fellow mobsters being sarcastic?
