  • I am lost here though.  Stuffing crackers?

    You mean lost on what Dr. Hugo was referencing? If so, see the Besser short Muscle Up a Little Closer...


    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.

  • I get that the title is a play on the title of an old Rudy Vallee song/movie, both of which might have been familiar then but now are almost completely forgotten, but I also daresay that this title didn't make any sense even when the short was new, seeing as how the stooges here are neither vagabonds nor loafers.  Idiots, yes, vagabond loafers, no.  That being the case, might I suggest a renaming contest, like we had with An Ache In Every Stake, a title which also made no sense, and which got delightfully renamed The Iceman Dumbeth.  Maybe we can strike comedy gold again.  Have at it, you intelligent imbeciles.  Me, I got nothing.

    How about...
    Pipe Dreamers
    Moe Parts the Sea  :D
    All Wet
    Three Wet Heads
    A Watery Nightmare

    OK... mine all are  [pie] to.

    We're off !  Thank you, Doctor.  Pardon My Leak is great, but I think you're right, wouldn't get past the censors.  The same, I think, with the word "drips", as in, say, Three Little Drips.  We've already given this more thought than the original title-writers, I'm sure.

    I thought of this too, and then was mad when I saw you had it too!

    I think "Pipe Dreamers" is pretty good—though "Moe Parts the Sea" deserves recognition for religious irreverence.

    I know the short but not the line.

    It occurs very early in the short, when Moe is supervising the stock-taking.

  • Before we are off the subject of matzah, I want to interject this story:

    A blind gentile man is attending his first Passover seder. He misses the explanation when a plate of matzah is passed to him. So he takes a sheet of the stuff and tries to figure out what it is by running his fingers over the surface. After a few seconds, he puts it down, shakes his head, and says: "Who wrote this garbage?"

  • One year my family was the the "Gentiles" at a seder, and I was the one who found the afikomen... hidden under the Rabbi's baby!  I love matzoh in all my Gentile glory!

    When I was in my 15th and final year of college (okay, it took me 15 years to get my degree in B.S. -- uh, Bachelor of Science degree -- due to working in between collegiate shifts), one of my classmates, a shiksa, told me she had been to a seder the previous Passover, and if I didn't already know her, I would have thought she was Jewish -- she knew so much about the seder.

    What would you like to know about?  The hard-boiled egg?  The washing of the hands?  The bitter herbs?  Dipping the finger in the wine?  The lamb shank?  Leaving the door open for Elijah?

    I know enough although I am not Jewish.

    I'm a winner.  My mother told me so.

    By the way, ALL WET is the title of a 1924 Charley Chase short.  You see, my Mom was right!

  • I don't know if anyone said this, but this short uses a new opening.  Why was the Columbia Pictures Corporation presents not used for the Three Stooges shorts that were released from 1945-1949?  And why don't Dopey Dicks and Love at First Bite have the Columbia Pictures Corporation presents?

  • Very good remake/ripoff of the Stooge short "A Plumbing We Will Go", the one thing what improves among this short is we get to see more of Moe & Larry together and Moe's temper seems to be beefed up more, I've thought Kenneth MacDonald and Christine McIntyre were really good as the villains trying to steal the painting (which was a new addition to this short that we haven't seen in "Plumbing"), the only downside is Moe hardly punishes Shemp in this short which makes it feel like he was the middle stooge while Larry gets the brunt of Moe's wrath and Shemp's "Maze Of Pipes" scene wasn't as funny as Curly's.

    I also thought Symona Bynoface was better in this short than Bess Flowers was in "Plumbing" as the woman who gotten splashed by the water coming out of the TV.

    Overall I give this short an 8/10, I think this short overall is nearly as good as "Plumbing"
