JOE BESSER TOURNAMENT - FINALS!!!!
« on: July 24, 2010, 08:40:05 AM »
A MERRY MIX - UP Vs. OIL'S WELL THAT ENDS WELL

The winner gets the prestgious #128 spot in the main tourney next week as well as bragging rights as the most popular Besser.

A little personal commentary - shame on you all for voting QUIZ WHIZZ off the island.

Now you ask me if I believe a man can become a wolf. Well, if you mean can he take on the physical characteristics of an animal, no, it's fantastic. However, I do believe that most anything can happen to a man in his own mind.

Oil's Well That Ends Well

Unlike Metaldams, whose opinion I repsect, I'm glad (and surprised) that Quiz Whizz is not in the finals. That one starts off okay, but becomes dreadful to watch once the Stooges dress up like little boys. I hate Joe's scene where he's forced to eat a cigar.

Both "A Merry Mix-Up" and "Oil's Well That Ends Well" are fine Besser shorts. Having watched them both recently, my decision was quite easy. "Mix-Up" is clearly the more creative one, but "Oil's Well" is the funnier one, and the one I would show someone who had never seen a Joe Besser short before.

Well, my favorite Besser short got beat out, "Space Ship Sappy" but my final vote will go to...

OILS WELL THAT ENDS WELL.

And I agree with Stooge-Adam about the cigar-eating scene in QUIZ WHIZZ. It's a good short, starts out great, but the disgusting unfunny cigar scene is what made me reluctantly have to vote it off.

A Merry Mix Up

Oil's Well That Ends Well is a good short, but it suffers from too many reused gags that are weakly delivered.  Merry Mix Up was both very funny, a lot of fun, and mostly original material.  It was by far the brightest Joe ever shined as apart of the Three Stooges.

A Merry Mix Up. I echo these sentiments:

Just to let you guys know, I've gotten into a good groove getting these first 64 match-ups ready by Saturday morning.  Things are looking good. 

Thanks to all you voters, and remember, if you haven't done so already, you have until Saturday morning to vote in the Besser finals or the preliminary Shemp Original vs. Shemp Remake round.

I'm sorry I missed this. OIL'S WELL THAT ENDS IN THE WELL is the best Besser short? Really? What about.....no that one sucked. Then there's...that one sucked too. Picking a best Besser is kind of like picking whether to have your balls cut off with a rusty cleaver or having them set on fire for a half hour.

Personally I would have gone with Quiz Whizz; at least it wasn't a freakin' remake short.
