Bernie Mac passes on

I know what you're thinking, what does comedian Bernie Mac has to do with Lawrence Welk?

To answer your question, he does have at least one Welk connection, granted he never appeared on the show itself (his comedy is not the Maestro's "Cup of Dish") of members of the musical family, Mary Lou Metzger, guest starred on "The Bernie Mac Show" a few years back in the episode "Fantasy Football" where she played a nun.

I'm guessing that many of you may have saw that episode....
Anyway, Bernie Mac died earlier today from pneumonia at age 50....that's the same illness Mr. Welk passed away from back in 1992.

Right now, heaven has a new comic, laughing until it hurts.
