easy pickings...

The emailer below is right: editing Ass Hooked Whitey is easy:

Here's the money quote:
Billionaire Texas oil tycoon T. Boone Pickens' ne'er-do-well son is fishing for trouble.

A New York judge overseeing Michael Pickens' bungled stock scam trial ordered the 52-year-old into rehab yesterday for allegedly trying to rob a Connecticut fly-fishing shop in a drugged-out haze last weekend.

Pickens, of Nocoma, Texas, was picked up Sunday night after he was found passed out under a desk in the ransacked Housatonic Meadows Fly Shop in Cornwall, Conn., state police said.

"He was sleeping under the desk in the fetal position," store manager Devin "Moe" Booth, 42, told The Post. "He was high, high, high. He just saw right through you."

Great story, and one ripe for the lampooning, but here's the question I can't reckon: what prompted Mr. Booth to inform reporters his nickname was Moe?
