1922. This is the story of The Three Bad Men-not The Three Wise Men. What's a godfather, Bill? The Youngest Bad Man inquired. What job does he hold down? You're an awful ignorant young man, Bob, replied the Wounded Bad Man reproachfully. A godfather is a sort of reserve parent who promises to renounce the devil with all his works an' pomps. The Youngest Bad Man smiled wanly. Well, Bill, all I got to say is us three're a lovely bunch of godfathers. This book was made into a movie starring John Wayne.
