An Extra Letter? Or Confirmation of Gang Membership?

EVER NOTICE how the Atwater Village gang spells its name Thee Rascals, not The Rascals? What's with the extra e? And what's with the extra e on this post about Joey Romo's murder on the AVNC forum: "Let us be strong and help THEE ROMOS get through these tough times."

Maybe it's an Eastside legacy thing. Remember the Chicano rock 'n roll group, Thee Midnighters?

I think they deserve high marks for trying to bring back Olde English.

They just do it for exaggeration. there is no real meaning. It's a territory thing. Depending on which "side" of Atwater you are on it is either for recognition from fellow gangmembers or to show pride and strike fear into their enemies. Sounds silly, and it is, but that's the dynamics of your typical L.A. street gang.

To make the sweet caramelly stuff:
Pour the milk, sugar, and vanilla in a very large pot and bring the mixture to a boil on medium-high heat. Remove from heat as soon as the mixture boils generic cialis and stir to dissolve the sugar into the milk. Stir in the baking soda dissolved in water. The milk will bubble up, but stir it back down.
