By no means would this be my personal final four, but four strong shorts overall. The second pairing was harder for me to vote on, so I ended up going with the short that hasn't won yet.

This is going to sound strange, I voted for AN ACHE IN EVERY STAKE, but am rooting for HOI POLLOI.  The former's my #2, and the latter's my #3, hence I voted for the former, but like you said ACHE has won and HOI POLLOI hasn't, so a part of me wants to see HOI get it.  Still, I gotta be honest and vote for what short I think is better.

As for A PLUMBING WE WILL GO, my favorite, it will always be a bridesmaid in this thing.  At least it lost to THREE LITTLE BEERS, which is a great short in its own right.

That was the hardest match-up of the last round for me (PLUMBING vs BEERS), in fact I thought PLUMBING was matched up with stiff competition through most of this MST. If it had beaten BEERS I would have voted for PLUMBING over DISORDER.

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.

Are these the final four?? Now that's sad. With the exception of "Three Little Beers," none of these shorts deserve to be in the top 4. There are A LOT more shorts that are far better.

Anyway, here are my votes.

1. Disorder in the Court
2. An Ache in Every Stake

The first one was tough. I like them both equally. The reason I chose "Disorder" is because it has one of my favorite stooge lines...

Judge: He's asking you if you swear...
Curly: No! but I know all the words.

And as for "Ache", it's probably my favorite Curly. I'm glad to see it make it this far. Though I gather from some responses that it may have won in the past. So it wouldn't be terrible if it lost.
