Wouldn't this be a textbook example of Mutually Assured Destruction?

I'm pretty sure you enjoy old movies, so how would you rank the following actors? Humphrey Bogart, Spencer Tracy, Cary Grant

Humphrey Bogart is my favorite, but Tracy and Grant are gravitas versus charm-- how do you even compare them?

Kind of like comparing Lee J. Cobb with Moe Howard?

Would Lee J Cobb have made a better Head Stooge?

Oh no, woe is any schmoe who deals a low blow to Moe.

But truth be told, I'd need to see Lee J. Cobb audition for the part of Moe before I could rule him out. Could he poke Larry's eye with the same grace and dexterity as Moe Howard?

What classic actors do you think would work for a more serious, gritty version of The Three Stooges?

I see Patrick Stewart as a more enlightened Moe, stern to be sure, but steering the boys in a more fruitful direction.

How about you?

What do you think about James Coburn as Moe, Paul Michael Glaser as Larry, and Telly Savalas as Curly? :Ahhh:

Can you imagine Telly Sevalas accepting any kind of beating from Moe?

Do you think our Grim Stooges would even survive one short subject?

I would love to find out. Unfortunately, our imaginations are likely to be left as hypotheticals.

What comedy group, besides the Three Stooges, has been among your favorites?

Are you familiar with the comedy duo who met Dracula and Frankenstein and all those guys?

Yes, but don't you wish all the great comedy teams could have met the classic monsters?

How would Harpo Marx have defeated The Blob?

Is it possible that the Blob could feel annoyance?

If a movie could be named Silence of the Lamb, why not also Annoyance of the Blob?

Do you think that would make for a successful Kickstarter?

Wouldn't most people prefer that the Blob be destroyed rather than merely annoyed? Yet, for comedic value, wouldn't Harpo's annoyance of it be priceless?

Should we go for a TV series instead?

Harpo and the Blob, premiering on HBO.... I'd pay to see that.

So how did you know to buy that 1st edition Stephen King novel for $5?

A happy little accident.

What's another example of a good financial decision you've made?
