Yes, the whole site is supposed to be fun, but this page in particular is for all the extra fun stuff like trivia quizzes and drinking games and cartoons and... poetry. That's right, poetry. Have fun!

"It'll be fun." — Sharona
"It's a game?"
"Yeah, It's a game."

The official USA Network Monk site now has a nifty quiz and a few games of their own:

monk shui

mind game

They've also got Monk Puzzles, Monk-O-Phile Trivia and Monk Eye Spy!

Only on The Monk Fun Page —


This month's quiz features five multiple choice questions about "Mr. Monk and the Billionaire Mugger."


(Now runs in later versions of Netscape or IE, but you can read the questions and answers in any browser)

This is my favorite game (variations of it at any rate), although people get really tired of playing it with me... really fast. Sort of like Monk and charades.

The object of the game is to connect Ted Levine to another actor in five steps or less. (Six degrees is just too easy.) Simple, right? Sure… except I’ve got a few rules.

Rule 1: “As was" doesn't count: i.e. Ted Levine was in Murder She Wrote as was Tony Shalhoub.* It's not a connection unless they were in the same episode of said series.
Rule 2: Compilation films, like That’s Entertainment, don’t count.
Rule 3: I make up other rules as we go along.

The IMDB is a wonderful thing, but relying on it too heavily is not in the spirit of the game. Besides if you ever have to play the game at a real life party, IMDB won’t be there to back you up. Never-the-less, here’s the link to Ted’s film and television appearances just to start everyone off with a good knowledge base.

The challenge was to connect Ted Levine to Traylor Howard not using Monk. You can use film and/or TV roles, just keep rule 2 in mind.

*Neither Ted nor Tony ever appeared on Murder She Wrote.

And here's the only entry... um... I mean, the winner!
Submitted by JuggaloFWA

Step 1: Ted Levine was in Heat with Natalie Portman
Step 2: Natalie Portman was in Mars attacks with Danny DeVito
Step 3: Danny DeVito was in Friends with Courtney Cox
Step 4: Courtney Cox was in Scream with Jamie Kennedy
Step 5: Jamie Kennedy was in Son of Mask with Traylor Howard

Next up, connect Ted Levine to Jason Gray-Stanford
in five steps or less not using Monk.

I'm not sure why I hadn't thought of it before, but the world needs a Monk Drinking Game. The first drink goes to Adastra of the USA Monk Message Board for suggesting the idea and providing the initial list. Thanks, Adastra.

I'm endorsing Sierra Springs as the official drinking game beverage, but if you want to use beer or a 20 year old scotch or a nice cabernet, that's up to you.

No, Action Figure Natalietm is not a real product. If it were, I'd have one.
This is another magical item from the mind of Fan4sure.

From the Monk Magical Mystery Tour Bus

Hey!!! Glad you have room for ME on the bus! So . . .

Hop on the bus, Gus
Don’t need to discuss much
Just turn on the key, Natalie
And set this bus free

Don’t get too drunk, Monk
So glad you understand, Leland
We’re a little unruly, Julie
But a fun place to be

Want another Corona, Sharona?
Oops, she’ll have to pee, Benji
Pass out some candy, Randy
Hope you’re listening to me

That’s a monkey from a sock, Doc
Monk’s not too moody, Trudy
She’s surely in heaven, Kevin
I think you’ll agree

What’s with Monk’s mother, brother?
You’re the guy who knows, Ambrose
Heard the captain swearin’, Karen
Never really bothers me

Are you feeling blue, Sue?
Need to watch the show, Joe
Just slip out the back, Jack
And get cable TV

Willie, the Red-Headed Stranger
sung to the tune of
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
by Fan4sure

Willie the red-headed stranger
Guest upon our favorite show
He was accused of killing
A guy he thought stole his dough

All of the cops believed her
This witness that was blind
Monk came to the rescue
And everyone changed their mind

Monk and Willie visit Trudy
They played for her a sweet duet
Willie gently strummed his guitar
With Monk playing the clarinet

Then all the fans applauded
And they shouted out with glee
Willie the red-headed stranger
Knows Monk can solve a mystery!

These cartoons are obviously from The New Yorker, who very kindly let USA Networks have them and they, in turn, have unwittingly passed them on to me. They just go so well with my theme here.

How Did You Get Hooked On MONK?

An ode by fan4sure
originally posted on The USA Network Message Board

The sun it did shine
It was too hot to play
So we sat in the house
All that 4th of July day

I sat there with hubby
We sat there we two
And I said how I wish
We had something to do

Too hot to go out
And a crowd at the lake
So we sat in the house
Barely staying awake

The TV was playing
No one paying attention
Some golf game or something
We were bored, did I mention

A catchy theme song
Then started to play
Began watching a show
That would play all day

A marathon of Monk
Have I seen this before?
This outstanding show
I would come to adore

One after the other
The episodes came
Glued to the set
Is what I became

Since that day
Joined the Monkaholics
No curing the disease
Even with antibiotics

Friends sometimes ask me
To go out Friday night
Think I’ll stay home
But thanks for the invite


Can’t miss an episode
It would make me blue
What would you do
If your friends asked you?
