Is there a 'Jablonski' in modern folklore?

This has been bugging me: The name Jablonski -- is there a character in some movie or TV show that has a humorous character with this name? Something from Jerky Boys maybe? Something along those lines? SNL?

Any help?

There was a Christmas episode of "Married...with Children" where Al was shown life if he was never born. Ted McGinley was the new dad and the family had the name Jablonsky.

There's a Jablonski in SUPERMAN: THE MOVIE that's a Navy officer...it's the scenes where Lex and Otis are posing as truckers and the Navy is trying to get the missle across the bridge.

Are you thinking of Something Awful's Cliff Yablonksi? Where they posted unflattering pictures of regular people and use the name as an old man reviewer to make fun of them?

Yeah I was going mention that one--Definitely funny back in the day. I guess I'm mashing up names in my degrading memory.
