I always loved the original Three Stooges, I thought they were hilarious. Not everyone enjoys slapstick comedy, but the slaps and falls just tickle my funny bone to no end. Are there any other fans out there, or are you one to turn your nose up at this art form?

I was never a big fan of The Three Stooges, but I do love Abbott and Costello and Laurel and Hardy. Martin and Lewis was another great comedy team. I don't know why The Three Stooges never seemed funny to me, though.

I can relate to that, Snowy, not everyone finds these guys funny. I guess there is an untold mechanism which triggers amusement in some individuals while not doing the same in others. To me, The Three Stooges are in a league of their own.
