Here we go!  Pick your favorite short from each pair (or triplet)!  The ones with most votes advance to the Round of 128.  For your benefit, I have linked the discussion to each respective short from metaldams' reviews.   These are seeded in order by ThreeStooges.net ratings.  The winner of of Bracket 1 goes onto be seed 127 in the big board, and the winner of Bracket 2 goes on to be 128.  If we have enough fun with this, maybe we can push these brackets long enough to achieve an order of 1-190 by these methods?  [pie] [3stooges] ;) ::)

Edit: in case of a tie, both shorts advance, and there will be three shorts squaring off based on where the lower ranked short would have been.

    For my votes, the opposite of what he said, so now that we cancel each other out, let's start over again! [pie]

  • Bracket 1
    A GEM OF A JAM (I give CUCKOO ON A CHOO CHOO credit for being a unique short, but I find it to be very boring)

    Bracket 2
    UP IN DAISY'S PENTHOUSE (this decision was tougher, but, overall, I prefer DAISY's premise, even though it's a remake, and think it's a little funnier)

  • An easy round for me too...

    Cuckoo on a Choo Choo

    Up in Daisy's Penthhouse - To me, one of the great Curly-to-Shemp remakes. I know that's not a popular opinion, but whatever...

    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.

    At least here, the decisions are easier than trying to figure out who to root for:  Yankees vs. Cardinals, Cowboys vs. Giants, Celtics vs. Lakers, Rangers vs. Islanders vs. Devils.

    If there's no other place around the place, I reckon this must be the place, I reckon.

  • We have a hung jury on Bracket 2.  Now what?  I really do not want to allow both to advance, but...

  • Do a Trump and despite all evidence to the contrary, lie about who won.

  • To anybody reading this who hasn't voted...vote.

    If that straightforward plea doesn't work, perhaps messaging Dunrobin or somebody with their final vote might be a thought.

    ...or you can simply advance both

  • I'll change my vote to Sock-A-Bye-Baby to break the tie. It was a coin toss between it and Daisy's Penthouse.

    The simplest solution since either way #2 is going to win that matchup in a landslide.  The worst part is that I definitively had 11 votes... 6 for GEM OF A JAM and also 6 for UP IN DAISY'S PENTHOUSE.  Some deleted their vote for some reason.
