an oddly addictive, endearing cop dramady on the USA cable network, centering around the character of Adrian Monk (played by Tony Shalhoub), a San Fransisco detective battling with obsessive-compulsive disorder and his grief over the death of his late wife, Trudy.
i usually don't watch TV, but i make an exception for Monk.

Monks (also called bros) are religous men who usually chillout at the monastary to pray. They also like brewing beer and tea.

They usually wear a simple brown cowl and a wooden cross. They swear an oarh to never get any booty but they are not gay.

If shit hits the fan, you can always count on a monk to help you out.

The female version is called nun or sis. Do not confuse with some scumbag detective.
Monk: Let me just finish my prayer, then we brew some beer!

An incredibly good show starring Tony Shaloub. Sharona used to be Monk's assistant but she left and now his assistant is Natalie :-( But its still the funniest show on. Monk is afraid of milk, dogs, germs, small spaces, elevators, kids and birth. He is OCD and needs everything to be perfect. His wife, Trudy died in a car bomb accident and he will never be the same. Hes funny though, and so is everyone else on the show.
It's a jungle out there, disorder and confusion everywhere.........

I can't believe no one has given the real defintion yet. A monk is a dedicated religious person who lives in a monastery.
