"My name is Frunk-en-steen"

That's a "Young Frankenstein" reference, for all you kids out there. That's from back in the days when Mel Brooks was funny. Or at least funny to a seven-year-old. I watched that from the family Datsun with my dad and brother at the old Sunset Drive-In on McCormick Blvd in Skokie, ILL.

Man, I sound like I'm getting old... Maybe I am.

No matter, the movie was funny to kids my age, however old I was. Anyway, kids, dig this (that expression really is before my time):

I still laugh myself silly when I watch Young Frankenstein, and I'm 55. That might say more about me than about Mel Brooks, but there it is.
