Congratulations, WhyIOughta! You were a very challenging opponent and you did an excellent job proving your point.
Now that the debate is over and I lost, I would like to say a few things. To be honest, I’m still wondering whether or not I should even see this movie if/when it comes out. I guess it all depends on the previews and what the people say about it. But I may check it out, just out of curiosity. But Rob does bring up a good point about the toilet humor, which is not something I really want to see in a stooge movie.
From the very beginning, I had a feeling that the vote results were probably not going to be 4-0, mainly because (like what Doug and Rob said), the movie hasn’t even started yet. So each of us don’t really know for sure how the movie will turn out.
I really didn’t know whether I was going to win this debate or not. But seeing WIO’s argument made me realize right away that this guy is going to be one heck of a tough opponent to beat. But I figured, let me try it out and see if I can beat him. But like what Rob said, once WIO said “I don't need to taste a $hit sandwich to verify that it tastes like crap,” I knew right then and there that I’m just as good as dead.
So, congratulations again, WIO! Enjoy your Three Stooges Journal Subscription.
Thanks so much, X...... I will truly love to read all of the articles and info in the "Three Stooges Journal" for one year. From what I've seen it's info that's right up my alley, when it comes to the history of my favorite comedy teams, and can't wait to see it. X, you're TOUGH, and I knew it before either one of us wrote one word in anger. I had looked over the past TMD's, saw you had already won one of them...right then, I said to myself as I was sending the PM to Shemps#1 to enter one of the TMDs, "WIO, you had better be ready for this, or you're going to get barbecued." I KNEW that I didn't want THAT to happen, because I had read a lot of the posts by all of the others, saw that they all knew what was goin' on in here, and didn't want the "Stooges population" of this board to witness me taking the pipe in one of these highly competitive debates...... (grin)
Now, to back-track, and discuss the just-completed TMD IV Debate.......... Like you, X, I, too, am interested in the finished product, if and when it's ever made. BUT -- true to my word, I won't see it until it's on DVD. I can't pay big $$$$ to see that $hit sandwich.
I also hope they don't play the 'toilet humor' card. That'd be an even BIGGER mistake.......
The debate question actually had me torn -- I wanted YOUR side of the debate, because I thought I had a much better argument. Then, when I got the "boycott" side of things, I thought to myself, "I can make this work, I think...Maybe..." (Laugh) All things considered, This whole thing was a blast....But, xraffle, we gotta quit battling each other in the odd-numbered debates, and team up to take on the BIG fish in the ocean, "The Metal One." If WE keep squarin' off in even-numbered debates against each other, he'll avoid facing BOTH of us in a TMD format, and "that just wouldn't be right, now, would it?"
I shouldn't open my big yap here -- I can just see Shemps#1 putting together some format that uses X, Metal, Fillum, FineBari, and all the other debate participants, all in the same "ring" at the same time....Damn it!
