The Three Stooges, who were all Ashkenazi Jews, occasionally worked a word or phrase of Yiddish into their dialogue. In particular here, they make several overt Jewish and Yiddish cultural references: The exclamation "Beblach!" used several times in the film is a Yiddish word meaning "beans". "Shalom Aleichem!", literally "Peace unto you" is a standard greeting in Yiddish meaning "hello, pleased to meet you". "Moe: We'll start a 'Blintzkrieg' (Blitzkrieg). Curly: I just love blintzes especially with sour krieg." This is a reference to the Ashkenazi Jewish dish blintzes with sour cream. In Moe's imitation of a Hitler speech, he says "in pupik gehabt haben" (the semi-obscene "I've had it in the bellybutton" in Yiddish). These references to the Nazi leadership and Hitler speaking Yiddish were particularly ironic inside jokes for the Yiddish-speaking Jewish audience. See more »
The Three Stooges must've known what was goin' on in Germany (all three are Jewish), so thety decided to do a parody. It is not only they're funniest one yet, but also the'yre most meaningful (I thought this parody was much better than the Groucho Marx one in 1938). Here, The stooges play Hailstone, Gailstone and pebble. They become the heads of Moronica (I love the slogan: Moronica for Morons) and start to create chaos. Very smart comedy, including scarily right on impression of Moe doing Hitler (though I crack up at the thought of him speaking) and Curly doing Mussolini. Gags of course, but the puns are hilarious as well. A++
