What The Bar Association Must Think, 19 February 2014
Author: bkoganbing from Buffalo, New York

Next to Clark And McCullough the Three Stooges look like a white shoe Wall Street law firm. In this short subject the boys are a pair of cut rate lawyers who generations ahead of their time advertise their services by any means necessary. What the Bar Association must think?

Prize fighter Tom Kennedy who is desperate to stop his wife and her lawyer from cleaning him out hires Bobby and Paul as his divorce attorney. They do so in their own chaotic way, a cross between the Marx Brothers and the Three Stooges. Paul McCullough as second banana is definitely second chair on this case.

Average comedy that still generates a few laughs. With these two representing him Kennedy is lucky he didn't wind up marrying the rabbi.
