BRONX (PIX11) - Some holiday hi-jinx in the Bronx District Attorney’s office is raising eyebrows after a picture surfaced with prosecutors throwing up gang signs.

Chances are, none of the mustachioed men are connected to any of the gangs whose signs they’re throwing up in the picture.

That’s because the men are prosecutors in the Bronx District Attorney’s office.

The picture, first reported by the Daily News, was taken at a holiday party about a year ago.

The event was a fundraiser for the heart fund — which explains the mustaches,  not the gang signs.

“The picture was a silly moment at an office event.  It was never distributed as a holiday card or in any other way,” the Bronx DA’s office said in a statement.

We spoke to several criminal defense attorneys who downplayed the picture calling it nothing more than antics that were meant to be kept private.  However several…

Stephen Colbert and Steve Carell swapped stories, quips, compliments and occasionally got serious during a Q&A held Friday in Newark, N.J., held as part of a fundraiser for the state’s upcoming Montclair Film Festival.

Colbert, a Montclair resident, has long been a booster of the event, which is going into its fourth year in April. More than 2,800 people turned on Friday for the benefit at New Jersey Performing Arts Center’s Prudential Hall.

The depth of the friendship between Colbert and Carell was clear from the start. The two came together at a heady time for both of their careers, with Colbert poised to take over CBS’ “The Late Show” from David Letterman next year, while Carell is generating Oscar buzz for his starring role in the Sony Pictures Classics drama “Foxcatcher.”

“People might be surprised by your performance in ‘Foxcather,’ but I’m not,” Colbert told Carell. “Because I’ve always…

STATEN ISLAND (PIX11) — This is such a turkey of  a story, but hopefully without a fowl ending.

More than 100 wild turkeys who live on or near the grounds of the South Beach Psychiatric Center on Staten Island are being given a pardon just days before Thanksgiving.

Dylene Schifando was happy to hear the news.

“It’s great the turkeys are going” on a trip upstate, Schifando.

Schifando said she’s sick and tired of dodging turkey droppings when she walks her dog, a Chow Chow named Jax, so this Dongan Hills resident was thrilled to hear that up to 100 wild turkeys will be relocated to a farm in green county New York, where the owner is a licensed game breeder.

“I blow my whistle and they go away,” Barbara Liang, another neighbor, told PIX11 News. But she wondered about the cost.

“Who’s going to pay for this?” Liang…
