Putting all of that classified information into writing “was an incredibly stupid thing [for Virtuoso] to do,’’ a source told The Post.

The treasure trove was discovered in “The Butcher’s’’ butcher shop, Graham Avenue Meats & Deli, in Williamsburg.

YouTube HE’LL NEVER LOIN: Among the names of wiseguys feds say were in Mike “The Butcher” Virtuoso’s Rolodex was acting Bonanno capo Anthony Pipitone.

Gregory P. Mango IT AIN’T CHOPPED LIVER: Feds say they found the trove of mob numbers in Mike Virtuoso’s butcher shop. The meticulously detailed “Rolodexes” and “address books” listed contact information for “members and associates of organized crime,” according to the feds.

The butcher is a made man. He’s about to be made into sausage, I think.

I’m disappointed. I thought Rob Reiner’s name was going to turn up.

I’d love to see the FBI turned loose on Billy “the Punk” Ayer’s Rolodex. Or Pelosi’s. Or Jeremiah Wright’s. Or Baraq’s. Or George Soros’. But then, there would be a lot of overlap among those.

He had names, numbers, nicknames and titles of people he knew in a Rolodex. What exactly does that prove? That he knows people?
