2) It's fun to beat down a ton of mooks before facing the "boss" monster.
Opposite of Mooks are Midriffs; oxymoronic innocent skanks who are modeled after Britney Spears.
Basically someone that you think is stupid.
This is how it is interpreted in So.Cal. for the most part.
There you go you fuckin' mooks.
"We won't pay because this guy is a... mook."
"But I didn't say nothin."
"We don't pay mooks!"
"A mook. I'm a mook... What's a mook?
"You can't call me a mook!"
A fight then ensues.
