Mob associate Joe “Joe Fish” Grupa had a wooden leg, but that didn’t stop him from strong-arming pornographers  for protection money  with mafia enforcer , Tommy Riccardi.. When Riccardi died from heart failure  Fish went to work in the garment  district running a  crap game.   One night the joint suddenly got police  and Joe ran  out of the place so fast that he fell and his wooden leg broke off..   Two coppers spotted fish floundering on the ground.  One cop  said to the other, ” we better get this poor prick a doctor” , Fish then shouted out,” I DONT NEED A DOCTOR, ‘I NEED A FUCKING CARPENTER “
