Lenny Zen, Jr., that famous Mt. Fuji comic, never stops trying to come up with new material, and he's well aware that what's sold before will sell again. That is his downfall. Lenny's never had a truly original thought in his life that was any good. Many of you may already have seen some of his original thoughts.
