  • Alcoholic drinks of sufficient potency have the power to cause the stool on which the drinker is seated to spin madly (Curly in "Dutiful But Dumb").

    It is possible to perform music sounding like a whole band using just one or two instruments (again, Curly in "Dutiful But Dumb).

  • Should-be-deadly explosions are always survivable (multiple shorts as well as the Shemp solo short "Where the Pest Begins").

    Curly also does that in Idle Roomers, producing the sound of a band when Moe gives him a trombone to play in an ill-calculated attempt to mollify the wolf-man.

  • A human head may penetrate a wall (brick or otherwise) at high velocity, producing damage only to said wall. The head in question may "shake off" the damage or, in worst case scenario, be forced to "listen to the birdies" for an unspecified, decidedly comical amount of time. Resulting humorous disguises, such as that of a gopher, are entirely dependent upon the location vis-a-vis the time frame of such a collision within a given short (citation or mathematical formula pending).

    Also, unrelated, an owl in disguise (as, one might say, a miniature ghost with its head in its hands?) may attract attention to itself by illuminating its eyes at will, while uttering characteristic inquiries.
    A jerk with a quirk may do the work. Or, a turk with a dirk may stick a clerk! Gut gesagt?

  • A malfunctioning elevator will shoot through the roof and continue its trajectory through the heavens while leaving the occupants physically unaffected ("Idle Roomers").

    Being hit by a military cannon at close range knocks you into kingdom come but leaves your smoking shoes and socks untouched ("Half-Shot Shooters).

  • A triple-decker bunk bed, with of course the heaviest man in the top bunk (Curly), where the bunk breaks crashing down through the middle bunk (Larry) and the bottom bunk (Moe), yet Moe survives with hardly any pain from the hundreds of pounds of humanity and wood that landed on him.

    Being shot out of a cannon, on the other hand, is a perfectly safe method of rapid transit (Uncivil Warriors).

  • A Law of Neurology of the Stooge Universe:
    Hearing a particular song, seeing a particular item or smelling a particular fragrance galvanizes a Stooge with superhuman strength and fighting ability, but also requires tickling with tassels, removal of stimulus or consumption of specific cheese to return to normal
    ("Punch Drunks," "Tassels In the Air," "Horses' Collars," "Grips, Grunts and Groans").

  • A hammer, when used on a human head, incurs more damage than the person's head.

    Same with axes, saws, and monkey wrenches. I would say, heavy tools generally. But hammers make the best sound. Clang!

  • Two more...

    1. When a person is being electrocuted (e.g. LISTEN, JUDGE) or for other reasons has electricity flowing through his body (ALL GUMMED UP), a light bulb can be powered by being held by the person or having the light bulb screwed into his ear.

    2. In the case of electricity in the ear, the electrical connection can be shorted by inserting a screwdriver into the victim's ear, sometimes causing vaporization of the screwdriver.

  • A sofa spring, attached to the seat of the trousers, will have the strength to bounce its wearer back onto his feet every time he falls on his rear; the spring's action will make a sound like a double bass (I think) string ("Hoi Polloi").
