Happy birthday, Curly!

Yep, Jerome Lester Horwitz aka Curly Howard was born 100 years ago today.

Nyuk nyuk nyuk!

I saw that! Wise guy, eh? :wink: Yes, I am female and yes, I love the Stooges. “Calling Dr. Howard … Dr. Fine … Dr. Howard!” (that is from Men in Black isn’t it?). The Shemp ones were okay, but I preferred to watch Curly, Larry and Moe.

Happy 100 to you, Jerome “Curly” Howard!

Oh Moe, I tried to think and nothing happened!

Mr. Jerome “Curly” Howard [Horowitz],

From a man who has the body of Curly, the hair of Larry, and the disposition of Moe – HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ya lamebrain!!!

I’m a victim of soicumstance!!

I’ll add that it will be a colder and less happy world if ever Curly’s numerous catchphrases finally disappear from common usage. I would not want to live in such a place.

“Look Moe, I’m a >insert occupation here<!”

I have gotten the absolute strangest looks when I start barking and snapping at an obstreperous piece of equipment that I’m repairing. Of this I am exceedingly proud.

PS: tarragon918, you do realize that an appreciation of The Three Stooges makes you prime marriage material for a substantial portion of American men? (Just asking.)

The Curly Shuffle:





In Hoi Polloi, Curly and the guys train to become gentleman, in the scene were they read tasteful books tastefully:

Larry: “Does the deer have a little doe?”

Curly: “Yeah, two bucks!!” Nyuk! Nyuk! Nyuk!

Moe: (Slaps Curly)
