Trivia Question

  • Here's a trivia question from Violent is the Word for Curly:

    In what year was Mildew College established?

    (See if you can answer that from memory.  No fair watching the episode to get the answer -- although it is a good excuse to watch it again!)   ;D

  • I'm watching Violent right now (hence the trivia question), and I just realized that I always got a line of Moe's wrong.  When Moe and Larry are thawing out Curly over the open fire, Moe pokes Curly with a stick and says,

    "Twenty minutes to a pound -- he he -- we'll be here for a month."

    For some reason I always thought he said "for a fortnight" (meaning two weeks.)  I have no idea where I got fortnight.

    I did a quick calculation: assuming a 30 day month, Moe was saying Curly weighed 2160 lbs!  ((30 days x 24 hours x 60 minutes) / 20 minutes = 2160)

  • I remember it since it's the same year Back to the Future Part III took place: 1885.

  • 1885? No wonder it is "Mildew-ed"!  :o

    Reminds me of the time I was asked by a monument maker why there was moss on the side of a mausoleum across the "street" from our family's.

    I guessed that it was the north side.

    He said no. Moss doesn't grow on granite. It was due to coffin gasses seeping through cracks because of improper ventilation!  :P

    More than I wanted to know!

  • Close, but no cigar.   ;)

    Added:  I'll give you a hint.  The college would have been nearly three-quarters of a century old when the short came out.

    Then it's 1865. It looks an awful like 1885. That six sucks.  ;D

    Bingo!  That's it.  You get the pie!   [pie]

    (When I saw your answer, I suddenly had doubts and re-watched the opening to make sure is really was 1865, as I thought.  I had my brother check it as well, just be make sure I hadn't misread it.)

  • 2. Shemp and Joe B. (Africa Screams)

    That's one of 4 possible answers. The other three are...
     - BROADWAY TO HOLLYWOOD (1933), Moe and Curly
     - JAILBIRDS OF PARADISE (1934), Moe and Curly
     - SCREEN SNAPSHOTS Series 19 # 6 (1940). Larry and Curly

    If Ted is considered, another correct answer is STAGE MOTHER (1933), with Ted and Larry.

  • s/hemphead: I seriously hate to be an annoying idiot here, but I found your post rather difficult to read as the grammar and punctuations are all over the place. Also, there are a lot of typos as well. I'm not a moderator or anything. I'm just some guy that struggles with reading posts like that. So, I hope you can do me a favor and try to type a little better next time. I hope I don't sound too harsh. You seem like a cool person so I don't want to provoke you. Thanks for your understanding.

    Reading this, I feel a little like James T. Kirk in Star Trek V, ever so slightly drunk, dozing by the campfire with Spock saying goodnight over and over again like a child.

    Kirk's only comment? "I don't know. I just don't know."
    A jerk with a quirk may do the work. Or, a turk with a dirk may stick a clerk! Gut gesagt?

    That is not correct... in BRIDELESS GROOM, Dee Green sings Voices of Spring, by Johann Strauss.

    very badly, I might add.


    "You're supposed to be singing about the voices of spring, not about the eruption of a volcano!"  LOL

    Knucklehead motorcycles were not named after the Stooges. "Knucklehead" refers to the shape of the engine heads.
