  1. [The Wire: Polk & Mahone]

    It is unclear whether the name of the pair, “Polk/Mahone”, is intentionally homonymic with the Irish expression “pogue mahone” (“kiss my ass”). It could make sense though as the pair appeared Irish with an uncommitted attitude towards Police Work.

    Vindication: Mad looked at me like I was nuts when I pointed out this “homonymic-ness.”
