While Cordatos Deli may get the citys blessing for the dancing that goes on in its back bar (erotic dancing, neighbors say and Cordatos denies), another visionary who combined sandwiches and strippers, Anthony Cousin Vinny Agnello, has ended up on the wrong side of the law. As youll recall, the Mafia-obsessed operator of World Famous Cousin Vinny's Gorgeous Strippers opened a Subway-style sandwich shop that he promised would host six hours of nonstop, hard-core, live action from some of the most beautiful young ladies who have ever chosen to take their clothes off in public. He later claimed it was all a publicity stunt; however, the Post now reports that Cousin Vinny, who operated a Subway franchise before being evicted for not paying rent, must pay $12,000 to the chain for violating trademark laws by using its bags, wrappers, and signature sandwich for his new venture. Did the judge not consider community service? Why not force him to perform six hours of nonstop, hard-core live action at a Quiznos?
