Triple Troll Wire Epigraph

New assignment for #wire106 inspired by Troll Quotes. Take an epigraph from one of the episodes and attribute it to another, related figure. Finally, adorn the quote and author with an image of a third character from the series. This way, nothing about your image is correct, and you’re trolling fans of The Wire with all three characters at once.

My Big Fat Greek Triple Troll Epigraph

Triple Troll Picture

I really wanted to use a picture of Omar for this assignment, so I remembered this picture from S1E13. For whatever reason, I decided to use one of the lines that the judge said to McNulty. I then thought that it might would appear that this is a believable line …
