Oh. But of course!

The Lucy Show in question, "Lucy Gets Jack Benny's Account," was written by former Benny writer Milt Josefsbeg, and as a result, the whole thing plays like a regular half-hour Benny show.

Mr. Mooney, played by the incomparable Gale Gordon, asks Benny for personal information ("Social Security number?" "One." Audience: AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!)

And Mooney asks a question about any distinguishing personal marks. Jack feigns embarrassment, tells Mooney he has a tattoo, but it's kind of personal and too embarrassing to say in front of Mrs. Carmichael, so he'll have to whisper it to him.

He does.

Mooney waits a perfectly timed second, then asks, incredulously, "J-E-L-L-O?"

Audience: "AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!" followed by prolonged applause.

Jack's reply: "You MUST understand. In THOSE days, sponsors were VERY hard to get!"
