A Stooge Could Do Better

Obama announces his newest team of Bank Bailout Advisors
Secretary Larry comments on the current crisis: "Our genius ain't appreciated around here... let's scram!"

Secretary Moe, what is your opinion of this mess?" "Where are those three loafers?" "They're in there, talking politics. I just heard one of them say, 'Let's have a New Deal'."

Secretary Curly chimes in with: "Five hundred dollars!? Hmmm... that's almost a million!"

Speaking of Stooges...

This is the dumbest idea ever

Nyuk Nyuk…Huh? Sean Penn Joins ‘Three Stooges’ Movie

Sean Penn

To his allies, Sean Penn is a wise guy; to his adversaries, he’s a stooge. Now they’re both correct: the actor has joined the cast of “The Three Stooges,” a new MGM comedy based on the vintage film shorts of that knockaround trio, Variety reported. Mr. Penn, who recently won his second Academy Award, for playing the title role in Gus Van Sant’s “Milk,” is set to play Larry, the wire-haired, Stradivarius-wielding Stooge. The studio is also said to be in final negotiations with Jim Carrey, who will gain weight to play the rotund Curly, and is pursuing Benicio Del Toro (“Che”) to play the irritable Moe. The film is to be written and directed by Bobby and Peter Farrelly (of “There’s Something About Mary” and “Kingpin” fame), and is planned for a 2010 release.

Watch video of the classic Three Stooges (and try to imagine them replaced by Sean Penn, Jim Carrey and Benicio Del Toro) here:

  1. I fell in love with the Three Stooges as a kid and still enjoy them immensely as an adult.

    And it doesn't matter that they're Jews, they're still funny as hell 70 years later.

    But I won't be going to see the 3 Stooges movie being concocted by Hollywood.

    Because I'm betting that movie will have some noxious scene about the Holocaust™ that will be pure fiction, but presented as fact.

    The "new and improved" Larry, Moe and Curly will have some weepy Holocaust™ moment that has the comedians saying that their comedy is some way of dealing with the Holocaust™ and that's why they're so funny, it helps to blah, blah, blah.

    I'm willing to bet a cup of coffee or a cold beer that happens.

    Anyone want to take up my bet?
