“What do you get when you mix rabid xenophobia and a guttural New York accent? Besides Donald Trump? This guy! Create your own LEGO 19th century artisinal charcuterie shop with Phil the Old-Timey Butcher. No Irish need apply.”
Phil is based on the historical figure William “Bill the Butcher” Poole:
