Ghetto's Errol Flynn
The hood version of the original Robin Hood — played by Errol Flynn. Take from the rich — give to the poor.
Jay apparently liked this relatively obscure allusion so much he did not mind that Flynn was rumored to have a “Brokeback Mountain” lifestyle.
(Seinfeld voice — Not that there’s anything wrong with that.)
