Recently, former detective Adrian Monk met the rock band Korn while stuck in a mult-car pile-up on Highway 101.

Julie Treeger, daughter of Monk's assistant Natalie, had to go to the bathroom really bad and they were granted the use of the facilities on Korn's tour bus.

That was less than a month ago.

And now, one of the band members, Brian "Head" Welch, has announced his retirement from the band because he has found religion. As such, he couldn't go on playing the type of music Korn was known for, but he wished his mates well as their roads took separate routes.


In Toobworld, what was it that caused the tele-version of "Head" Welch to be reborn? As he and the other members of Korn met Monk and Julie, they are no longer considered to be the same people as those in Korn here in the Real World. And therefore, the reasons for their actions can often be ascribed to fictional events.

Because this life-changing decision was made after another life-altering event like the traffic jam caused by a murder, I think it's possible that Mr. Welch took stock of the situation, reevaluated his purpose in Life, and decided that perhaps he had a higher calling.

And after seeing what Mr. Monk was like, maybe "Head" remembered a basic tenet to live by:

"Cleanliness is next to Godliness."
