Just A Brief Note.

I watched "Curb Your Enthusiasm" tonight, and in a scene in a restaurant with Larry David, Richard Lewis, and Jeff Garlin, Larry tossed a
throwaway line: "Colonel, I had no idea that Marilyn MONroe was on the base".
A "Sergeant Bilko" reference that I have attempted to maintain the level of popularity of on this blog.
He did the full accentuation on the "MON".
Could he be one of my readers?
Or are he and I simply exactly on the same wavelength?
In any case, I'm pleased.

More Weiner Comps on Tuesday.


My new book, "Mark Rothman's Essays", ones that were culled from the blog and are no longer there, along with a surprise bonus, is available for purchase.
Please e-mail me at for more info.



  1. Sidebar: I believe the MONroe pronunciation was also used by Ralph Kramden, in one of the "classic 39" Honeymooners episodes. Attempting to sweet-talk Alice as she arrives home, he asks Norton "What is Marilyn MONroe doing here? and of course Norton goes crazy, asking "Where? WHERE?" Hysterical!

  2. Doesn't he say mrs hall not colonel?
