The Internet is marveling over the hilariously revealing names of businesses owned by Rudy Giuliani’s henchmen.
Giuliani associates Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman were arrested Wednesday evening as they seemed ready to flee the U.S. on one-way tickets to Frankfurt, where they were set to take connecting flights to Vienna — where President Donald Trump’s lawyer was planning to fly the following evening.
Parnas and Fruman, who had assisted in Giuliani’s efforts to get Ukraine to dig up campaign dirt on Joe Biden, are accused by federal prosecutors of conspiring to “circumvent the federal laws against foreign interference by engaging in a scheme to funnel foreign money to candidates for federal and State office.”
As details about the pair and their alleged corruption scheme pour out, social media users paused for a moment to appreciate the names Parnas and Fruman gave their businesses.
Parnas co-owns a Florida-based fraud protection company called Fraud Guarantee, while Fruman owns a Ukrainian beach club called Mafia Rave.
Are you not convinced by the totally legitimate and in no way criminal companies Fraud Guarantee and Mafia Rave? These are legitimate businesses, sir!!!

With real life companies having names like "Fraud Guarantee," and a beach club called "Mafia Rave," why do us writers even need to try to come up with creative names for fictional villain groups or entities? https://t.co/aupbeG479P

“Mafia Rave” sounds the worst new Axe body spray scent.
Instead it’s a Ukrainian beach club owned by the guys who did dirt for the occupant of the White House, as described by his former lawyer in comic sans font

What's next? Performing in an a capella group called "Smooth Criminals"? Hosting a podcast titled "Con Men Confessions"?

I wonder what you wear to a Mafia Rave? Fur covered tommy gun with light up fedora? https://t.co/OlGcof1lQN

This is the club Giuliani’s two associates own in Ukraine.
You have to just love the fact that Roody Colloody is going to wind up in jail over two wannabe gangsters who owned a club called Mafia Rave.
