After watching "Mr. Monk Goes To The Bank" the other night, I went to the USA Network website to check out the guest cast. There was no need to look up who played the pawnshop owner - Dan Castellaneta, the voice of Homer Simpson, offered up a very amusing cameo.
But what struck me was that his character actually had a name listed: "Tiny Werner".
I admire the writer of that episode. The character's name was never really going to be mentioned in the show; so why not succumb to the temptation and make the name "Tiny Weiner"?
