    Ahhh, another strange little thread by Ayko.
    So what is the connection Ayko? I don't get it.

As fun as that might sound I still don't think there's enough tea in Germany to get him to do commercials for them.

    Someone at work said Stephen King looks like he could be Rob Lowe's dad. I kinda shrugged and said, meh, maybe si, maybe no.

    (Note the phrase, "maybe si, maybe no" from SK's Duma Key. This illustrates yet another suspicious foreign language reference. Maybe this means he's some how linked to the Spanish Inquisition. Cheese for thought there, right?)
    But I see it here. I see the Belzer connection too. I'd also like to add that Stephen King is aging in a very nice way. He's a right handsome gent! BTW Those sunglasses are hugely rad. I want.
    This does look like The Cleaner from SOA. Not sure though.

    It is true that Stephen King often uses French or Irish symbols among others. I have noticed that too. I have also noticed a greater emphasis on German ones. I do not believe I am exaggerating that point either. I will try to gather some statistics on that.

    After re-reading the original message I noticed too how the wrongfully worded title could be easily misunderstood. I have no problem with any mafia if they follow their traditions, family values and their codex. For example, it is forbidden for a mafia member to get involved themselves or associate with anybody close to media attention, especially celebrities. If the mafia does chose a member to go public for some reason it is done incognito as an artist who got lucky. The agenda is made clear before becoming a public figure and he or she keeps the rest of the family out of reach or contact by the media or celebrities he or she does not mention. In any case, because of the large number of German symbols and story accents it could be presumed that there is a mafia fan froup linked to Stephen King in some fashion. That is fine but it is not a good idea to advertise it. I realize this sounds far fetched but not really if you understand some of the mafia methods of communication these days.
