I got an email from Lenny Bruce



It was rather singed about the edges (Not sure why–perhaps because it was sent from his abode: Hades)

But I was able to resurrect most of it, and I with sincere humility transcribe it here:

 Dear Mister Marcom (I love it when I am called ‘Mister’)

Mister Marcom,

I am certainly honored that you continue to plagiarize my work.

However, you do not seem to be getting much ‘play’.

Perhaps you need to advertise.

(or just fuck off and call it a ‘draw’. You choose.)

Has been my experience that ‘contempoursely’ contemporary shit sells better. Maybe you should just go with Sarah? Hell! All us Jews look alike, n’est-ce-pas?

And of course I just had to hit that ‘reply’ button:

Dear Mister Bruce,

Hey! How’s the weather?

Frivolities out of the way…

I will continue to ‘Post’ You

And, yes, Sarah too

And thanks for the pepperoni.

Yer Fan,


Here is a toilet

Boil it

Enjoy it

“I am screwed; I speak English.”

  1. I did not know either.
    Makes me love Sarah even more.
    I love her.
    But then, you do realize, she is modern-day Lenny?
    On crack.

  2. Loved the Sarah video – I had never seen that one & didn’t realize until watching some other video that she used to date Jimmy Kimmel 😉 Funny shit!

  3. That is definitely one of my favorite lines from Lenny. So glad you got a laugh out loud from it.

    And what a wonderful payback! I love the video you attached: Priceless! And I thank you mavelous much for it.

  4. @”I am screwed, I speak English.” – LOL of the LOL!!! 😀
    btw, speaking English can “kill” you… conclusion: drink, eat, make love as much as you like… 🙂

  5. Lenny is funny.
    I am occasionally mildly amusing.

    I sincerely thank you for the compliment though, and Your Visit is definitely much appreciated.

    Cheers and Happy Monday!

  6. Dear Linda,
    When you find my mind, please bring it back to me (it will do you no good, but, I may need it, er… have some use for it.)
